Information About Changes in AP Exams

There are some big changes coming this year in regards to AP exam registration and payment.  We will be utilizing a new registration platform on the College Board website call myAP Classroom Students will be given a join code by their AP teachers in order to access the new registration platform.  In addition to this change in platform, College Board has also changed the deadline for students to register for their AP exams.  QOHS AP students will need to register for their AP exams by November 4, 2019. If a student does not register by this deadline, there will be a $40 late fee charged in addition to the exam fee for each exam ordered after the deadline date. Links for materials from the College Board explaining more about the registration process and the reasoning for changing the registration timeline are available online in English and Spanish. We will have more information to share regarding the payment process in the near future. If you have further questions regarding AP registration, please contact Ms. Lyon in counseling or Ms. Nicholsonin the media center.
