Advanced Placement Exam Registration 2019/2020

Sun, 09/22/2019 - 6:29pm


Dear Parents and Students,

The Registration Period for the 2020 Advanced Placement (AP) Exams, which will be administered at the beginning of May 2020, will close March 13, 2020.  If you wish to register for an exam OR wish to cancel registration for an exam, you must contact our AP Coordinator, Ms. Gilmer ( no later than March 9, 2020. 


Beginning this year, AP registration is a two-step process that takes place beginning October 1st.  At this point, students should have returned their College Board (CB) Portal Enrollment forms to their teachers.  If they have not registered to use the Portal, they can’t sign up to take AP exams.

The deadline for registering for AP Exams is November 1, 2019.  Any registrations after November 1 will need to be approved by the coordinator and administration.

First step is for your student to use the CB Portal to select the exam(s) he/she wishes to take in May.  Second step is to use Naviance to complete the process for the school and submit payment.  Both steps must be completed by November 1st to be registered. Students will be receiving a handout detailing the entire registration process in the next week.

Exams are held primarily at Long Reach High School with the exception of some smaller exams that may be combined with other schools.  Students are not expected to attend school on the day they take an exam.  You will sign a form in Naviance that allows your student to be excused for a school-based activity.  Students are expected to arrive 30 minutes before the exam begins. 


The cost is $94/exam.  Payment must be made at the time of registration (see registration instructions below).  Fee waivers are available for students who qualify under a variety of programs. 

After students select their exams in the Portal and submit the online Naviance registration, they are asked to submit a printed copy of the Naviance form along with proof of payment (check, or print-out of online credit card payment) to Ms. Jaksec in the Main Office.
