***Please be advised that AP Exam Registration is a two-part process. Students must complete BOTH parts (Total Registration and CollegeBoard) by the due dates above! It is highly suggested that you complete the two parts in succession.


Two Exams at the Same Time: There is an alternate exam for students who are scheduled to take two different exams at the same time. Please contact your guidance counselor immediately if you fall into that category for more information as to how to register.

Alternate Exam: There is an alternate exam for students who have an excused absence (ie illness) on the day of the exam. However, College Board makes the final determination for granting an alternate exam to a student. Please see your guidance counselor if you feel that you qualify for a late test. Note: Athletic Events do not qualify for a late test.

page3image5326720Free/Reduced Lunch Program:

Fee reductions are available for students that receive free/reduced lunch (FRL). If you have not received these services but feel you may be eligible for a fee reduction, please speak to your guidance counselor for additional information regarding eligibility.

The discounted exam prices for students qualifying for Free/Reduced Lunch are: $26.50 per AP Exam (half of the full price $53) if you are enrolled in the AP course this year. $53 if you wish to take an AP exam for an AP course that you are not currently enrolled in. For AP Seminar and Research, the cost is $50.50 (half of the full price $101)

Please review the following important notes regarding the FRL Program:

  • ▪  Even though all students receive free lunch through the federal government this year, students who may qualify for the FRL program MUST fill out and submit the paperwork prior to registering for their AP Exams. There is a review process that the application must go through before you can be approved for the College Board Fee Reduction. Students must pay the full price unless they have a qualifying application that they have completed for the current school year. If any student has a question about the FRL application, they should see their Guidance Counselor.

  • ▪  Students should also be aware that the FRL application must be completed EACH SCHOOL YEAR before registering for AP Exams. Qualifying for the FRL program during the 20-21 school year does not give students access to the reduced prices. They must apply again for the 21-22 school year (even though they already receive free lunch through the federal government program this year). If any students have questions about whether they have completed the paperwork and currently qualify for the 21-22 school year, they should see their counselor. The link to complete the FRL applications is as

If you have any additional questions regarding registration or AP Exams please contact your Ms. Erica Hapstak, AP Coordinator, or your Guidance Counselor.

Note: Only students who attend SPHS will be permitted to take AP exams at SPHS this year
