By now, your student should have received a Join Code to sign up for their AP exams. If they have not, please have your student contact their AP subject teacher to receive the Join Code. Students need to register for their AP exams by NOV 12th on The College Board website. Payment, however, should be made via the PHS online school store at this LINK. Any registration after this time will incur a $40 late fee from College Board. Please note that this is a very different policy from the past two years where the College Board waved late fees; The College Board is NOT waving late sign-up fees this year.
Costs of exams increased by $1 this year to $96 for regular exams, and $144 for AP Research and AP Seminar. Payment is due at the time of registration, but no later than March 1, 2022. Payment plans are available upon request. If you would like to schedule a payment plan, please contact Katie Horan at Katherine_e_horan@mcpsmd.org. If you are in need of a fee waiver, please complete this attached FORM.
