AP classes are rigorous academic courses designed for students who are college bound. Students self-select these courses and should be prepared to work at a college-level pace to manage the greater challenge. Students in AP classes have the option of signing up for the AP exams which are produced and managed by the CollegeBoard. Students do not need to take an AP course to take the exams. They can take other advanced courses or just study independently.
AP exams are recognized by colleges and universities with regard to a student's preparation for the demands of college courses. AP exams often present an opportunity for college credit and/or higher placement in college courses. Each college decides which AP exam grades it will accept for credit or placement.
The AP exams are offered in May of each year.
AP Exam information can be found below.
*The AP exams are offered to Northshore School District students in May of each year. Registration and payment options *without* late fees (of $40/per test) will close Friday, November 15th at 8:59 pm.
Every AP student should keep their options open by registering for the exam on time - by Nov. 15th! - because there will be a $40 fee for late orders.
Students - Create a College Board Account: Students will need a College Board account to join their AP class section, receive AP assignments from teachers, get feedback on class progress, and register for AP exams (note: parents should not create an account for the student). If you don’t have a student account, go to www.collegeboard.org/register and use your SCHOOL @apps.nsd.org email!
Already Have a College Board Account? All College Board programs are connected through one account. If an account was created for AP, PSAT/NMSQT or SAT, you just need your username and password to sign in. (You can retrieve lost passwords).
Advanced Placement Exam Registration & Payment is a two-step process (Both parts must be completed for each AP exam to be registered, ordered, and paid for).
- STEP 1: Students will need to login or create a College Board account via myap.collegeboard.org. Students will also need a “join code” (see all join codes at the bottom of this communication) given to them by their AP teacher in order to join a class section. Note: An exam cannot be ordered for you until you complete Step 1!
IHS Students do not need to be enrolled in an AP course to take an AP exam. If you want to take an AP exam and are not enrolled in an AP course, you will still need a join code to register, order, and pay for an exam. If you want to take an exam that is not listed on the site with a join code, please contact Julie Westerbeck email@example.com to get a join code issued.
- STEP 2: Beginning early October, Students will PAY for their AP exam fees via TotalRegistration.net/AP/480101 Note: An exam cannot be fully ordered and paid for you until you complete Step 1! (The College Board does not accept payment when registering for an AP exam so we have to use a second party to accept and track exam payment.). Please use the SAME student NAME and EMAIL as you used on Collegeboard.org!
IMPORTANT DEADLINES AND INFORMATION
- AP Registration Payment Deadline: November 15th 2022 by 9pm Pacific Time.
- It is recommended that students use their Northshore email account (@apps.nsd.org) when registering for both Total Registration and the College Board. Failure to use the same NSD email on both sites may cause a student to not get the correct AP exam.
- AP exams will cost approximately $108. This must be paid for by November 15th to avoid having to pay a late exam order fee ($40).
- Late registration fee mandated by College Board: Students MAY register for an AP exam AFTER November 15th and up until approximately March 5th, but will have to pay an additional $40 per exam late order fee. (Ability to sign up and pay for exams closes about 1 week *before* March 15. Please plan accordingly!)
- Any students who qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch are eligible for a fee waiver and will not have to pay for an AP exam. See your counselor.
