Changes in Advanced Placement Exams--Registration and Ordering for 2019-2020

The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently announced significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year.

Next year, all students will decide whether or not to take exams and order their exams by Nov 15, 2019. All students in 1st semester or yearlong AP classes who register after Nov 15, 2019, will be assessed $40.00/exam late fee. In addition, a $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be assessed for any exam order canceled after Nov 15, 2019. The ordering deadline for second semester only courses will be March 13, 2020. You can view the timeline in detail at, under Fall Exam Ordering Overview.

It is important that all families are aware of these looming changes. We understand that these changes may cause concern for students, parents and teachers. Please keep in mind that these changes are being mandated by the College Board and were not decided by the school.

Additional details regarding the College Board’s new process will be made available once we have more information.

We will hold an AP Informational Night on September 5, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room.

Any student looking to receive the Fee Waiver will need to complete the LCFF Funding Survey form and return to it Mr. De Luca, Academic Coordinator []. The updated form for next year will be posted in August.
