AP Exam Registration:
For the 2020 AP exams, all students at Wootton High School have to register online through their College Board myAP Classroom and to enter the classroom join code for each course provided by their AP teachers. Registration will take only a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. Students can use the same site above to access course material as well as register their AP exams. Online registration is currently open and will remain open until Monday, November 11, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
To complete exam registration, students must log in to their College Board portal (collegeboard.org). Once registration is complete, payment for their exam ($94 for all exams except for Research and Seminar which is $142) will be processed through the Montgomery County Public Schools - Online School Payments (OSP) portal (osp.osmsinc.com/MontgomeryMD). We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering and completing payment to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.
AP Exam Cost:
The AP Exam fee for 2020 is $94.00 per exam ($15 with AP Fee Waiver). We strongly encourage payments be made electronically through the osp.osmsinc.com/MontgomeryMD website. However, cash and check payments must be made in person to Mrs. Walsh in the Finance Office before and after school or during lunch.
Refunds: After registration of the exams, students have until Monday, November 11, 2019 to cancel; otherwise, the initial deposit of $40 will automatically be forfeited. Any refund requests beyond the amount of $40.00 (per full price exam) must be made in writing by January 3, 2020.
