AP Exam Information 2021 - 2022

As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we are focused on keeping you up to date about AP exams. Under College Board, the 2022 AP exams will be given in the traditional format of paper & pencil throughout a two week testing period. There will only be one testing window and one test format for the 2022 AP exams. All AP students must create an online account in College Board in order to join the classroom for each AP course they are enrolled in. If a student wants to take the AP exam in May, they MUST click “Yes” for the AP exam in their online College Board account. The AP Exam Registration Window will be from August 23, 2021 - October 29, 2021. The cost of each exam is $96.00, including the processing fee. Your online College Board exam sign up, as well as your Parent Portal payment indicates a commitment to take the AP exam. Any student who signs up to take the test and decides to withdraw from an exam is subject to an unused exam charge and is required to fill out an AP exam opt out form. If a student registers after the deadline, a late registration fee/late payment fee of $40.00 will be applied to the initial AP exam cost. The late registration deadline is January 28, 2022, NO EXCEPTIONS. A few additional important points about AP testing:

  • AP exam registration is only available to students who click “YES” via College Board online classroom.

  • AP payment is only available via Parent Portal.


Sycamore does not offer all AP exams, however, a student may register to take the exam at another school. Your student is responsible for making those arrangements to take the AP exam at another school.


Please contact Adrienne Sanders (sandersa@sycamoreschools.org) or Jane Ghantous (ghantousj@sycamoreschools.org ) with any questions.

AP Exam Cost: $96.00 per exam
