AP Exam Registration Policies and Details:

1. All students must indicate their AP Exam ‘decision’ on the College Board AP Classroom at http://myap.collegeboard.org on or before November 8, 2018. Students log into the College Board AP Classroom with the College Board Profile – the same profile/account used to retrieve AP scores from past years, PSAT scores in past years, or to register/retrieve SAT scores from past years. Students who have not taken any of these exams will create a NEW account. If students are not certain if they have an account, do NOT create  a possible second account. See the FAQs for assistance. (Students should use an email address to which they will have access beyond high school.)

2. Payment for the Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations must be submitted by February 21, 2019. The cost of each AP exam is $95.

Students who indicated that they will be testing on the College Board AP Classroom will receive an email invoice on or after November 9. The email will have a link where the student can submit exam fees via credit/debit card, or by mailing in a check or money order.

It is possible to make payments towards the invoice balance due. Full balance due must be submitted no later than February 21, 2019.

A 3% online service charge will be added to the exam cost for online payments. Mail in payments do not incur this cost, postmark deadlines do however apply. Mail in payments must be payable to “AP Test Service.

Exams ordered on the College Board AP Classroom between November 9, 2018 and February 21, 2019 will incur an automatic $40 late registration penalty.

3. Exam administration is available only for students currently enrolled at Palm Springs High School.

4. Fee reductions sponsored by the College Board and the State of California are available to families who qualify. Please make sure a copy of your approval letter is turned in to Ms. Elizabeth Kretz in the PSHS Front Office  before November 8, 2018. The invoice that the student will receive will automatically have the adjusted fees as the balance due.

Students who are eligible for the fee reduction will pay an exam fee of $10 per exam. If a fee reduction student chooses to cancel between November 9, 2018 and February 21,2019, they will be held liable for the $40 cancellation fee and therefore will owe $30 per cancelled exam.
