AP 2020 CRITICAL UPDATE

 

The CollegeBoard has instituted a new AP registration/ordering process beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, for the May 2020 exam administration and beyond.   Per CollegeBoard policy, exam registration/ordering will now be held in the fall of each school year.   While the fee of $94.00 per exam remains the same for this year, the procedure and timeline have changed.   Your student will commit to taking their respective AP exam(s) by November 1, 2019.   This commitment includes payment made to LHS and turned into the Guidance Office by 2:30 on Friday November 1, 2019.  

 

Key information about the new registration process:

 

  • All AP students will use their CollegeBoard username and password to log into myap.collegeboard.org (**Students who already have a College Board account should make sure they know their existing user name and password and DO NOT create a new account).  

 

  • After signing in, students will see their personalized MyAP homepage.  Teachers will give students a class specific join code for each of their AP classes.  Students will enter them to be enrolled in the course(s).  This also facilitates order identification and submission and allows students to access AP Classroom online coursework.

 

  • Once your student has enrolled in AP course(s) through CollegeBoard using the provided join code(s), they will automatically be designated as taking the AP exam for their specific course(s), in May.   If they decide to not participate in the exam administration, your student will need to let their school counselor know by November 1st.   If they choose to take the exam, they must submit payment to the Guidance Office by November 1st.   As in previous years, there will be course specific payment forms given to each AP teacher to distribute to their students.  Students will need to submit this form along with payment to Guidance.  A separate registration form and check are required for each exam.  Checks should be made payable to ‘Ledyard High School’, with the name of the test written in to the memo line.

 

  • Exam fees and fee reductions have not changed for the 2019-20 school year, however AP has instituted two new fees – one for late registration and the other for cancelling the exam after it has been ordered.  If your family meets certain income guidelines, you may be eligible for a fee reduction.  See your AP teacher or Mrs. Toppa/Mrs. Duczynski for more details.
