Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, the AP® Program is introducing new resources and processes designed to help students earn college credit and placement. Here’s what you and your student need to know:

  • Students will sign up through their AP classes for the College Board portal.  Students will get personalized feedback through new digital tools that provide daily support for every AP classroom. Their teachers will be able to track their performance throughout the year using monthly personal progress checks. 

  • Students will be asked to register for AP Exams in the fall. AP Exams will continue to be given in May.  Blake students must register by October 31, 2019 to allow for preparation of the final exam order by the College Board deadline.

  • The exam fee is not changing. However, there will be a $40 fee for late registration (after Nov. 15) and a $40 cancelation or unused exam fee. 

  • MCPS is currently redefining how AP exam fees will be collected, including the timeline for collection.  This information will be shared as soon as it is available.

  • To get ready for the coming school year, please encourage your student to sign up for a College Board account. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so if your student created one for the PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT®, or College Board Opportunity Scholarships, they’re all set. They’ll just need to have their username and password available.
