Rancho Mirage LogoCan I change when I take the exam? Exam times are set by The College Board.  Note that AP Exams must be taken only at the times established by The College Board. Click here to view the AP Exam Calendar.

How do I register and pay for the 2018 AP Exams?  You must register for each AP exam you intend to take.  The deadline for registering and paying is March 23, 2018.

You will register for your AP exams on this site for the full amount of all AP exams you plan to take.

Is there financial aid available for the 2018 AP exams?

Students on the federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program may qualify for a reduction or waiver of AP exam fees. Please make sure a copy of your approval letter is turned in to Ms. Iparraguirre, Ms. Ballard’s secretary, before registering for your exams.

What if I have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan?

The College Board must approve any changes or modifications to the AP exam administration.

Students with a current IEP or 504 plan who wish to receive testing modifications must contact their case manager ASAP.  We will work together to file the appropriate paperwork with College Board to allow testing modifications. This process must be completed by February 1, 2018.

What may I bring with me to the exam room?

Students MUST bring their student ID, pencils, pens in blue or black ink, and a calculator (if applicable).

Students may NOT bring iPod, iPads,  Smartwatches or MP3 or highlighters into the exam room. Cell phones and electronic communication device, backpacks and bags, including purses, should be left at home.

Do I need to excuse my absence with other teachers during the exam?

The attendance office will receive a copy of an attendance roster from the exam so you will automatically be excused for the class periods that are affected by the testing. You are responsible for all school work missed during your absence for AP Exams.

What if I finish the exam early? Can I leave early?

Per College Board’s security regulations for exams, students may not leave the test until time is called and all examinees are excused together. If a student leaves without permission, their exam will be collected and submitted separately to College Board. Their score will be cancelled and no refund will be possible. Exams are approximately 4 hours. Please be prepared for the duration of the exam.
