AP (Advanced Placement) Exams & Course Information

AP Exams are administered during the first two weeks in May.

If you need assistance paying for the AP Exams please complete the AP Exam Fee Assistance Request Form and return it to the school by deadline (TBA).

  • CollegeBoard is now requiring schools to order AP exams in November. Any exam ordered after the November deadline will incur a $40 late fee. MCPS is currently developing a system to register our students online. Students that change their mind after the deadline will be entitled to a refund minus the $40 fee.

  • Online payment informationAll standard exam fees are divided into two payments.  A $40 deposit that is due before November 10th and the remaining balance which can be paid before the students sits for the exam.   A 3.75% fee will be added to the purchase price of a school purchase as a site service fee. This fee is not collected by MCPS, but is a processing fee of the company hosting the site.
