Advanced Placement

2017 AP EXAM REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN AT GHS!


Taken each May by students all over the world, the AP Exam is the final step a student takes after a year of hard work in an AP class. These standardized exams are designed to measure how well a student has mastered the content and skills of the course — a successful score could even earn a student credit and advanced placement in college.


Students can take as many AP Exams as they want; in fact, with the exception of AP Capstone, the AP Program doesn’t require students to take an AP course before taking an AP Exam.



IMPORTANT REGISTRATION DETAILS:


  • Regular Registration will be available February 22nd through March 7th.

  • Late Registration will be available March 8th and March 9th and will incur a $10 late fee per exam.  No registrations will be accepted after March 9th.

  • Registration will be online through the Total Registration site.  Students MUST register online - there are no exceptions. Detailed information & instructions are listed on the registration website.    

  • Cost is $97.00 per exam ($53.00 per exam if student qualifies for a fee reduction).

  • Fees are payable online by credit or debit card or via mail by check, cashier’s check, or money order.

  • Students who cancel an exam by Monday, March 20th, are entitled to a full refund of the exam fee(s).  After March 20th, there are no refunds.

  • Please confirm with your AP teacher that you are registering for the correct exam(s).

Students and parents are encouraged to investigate the AP Policy for the college or university they plan to attend after high school.  Most two and four year colleges and universities worldwide recognize AP in the admission process and accept successful exam scores for credit, advanced placement, or both.  Detailed information can be found at:  http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/apcreditpolicy/index.jsp  


The AP testing program, a component of the College Board, is a national program.  The testing dates, times, and costs are established by College Board.  Parents and students should consider any other events that may interfere with the testing schedule and the financial obligation.
