AP Exam Registration Details (2021-22) - This year, registration for AP exams will be from September 13-October 1. This registration window is mandated by College Board© for all AP programs, and is not the decision of FUHSD or its schools.
We realize this registration timeline is very early in the school year, so we encourage students to talk over their exam decisions with their family, teachers, and trusted adults. Students should consider their confidence in the course content, overall workload, post-secondary plans, and their other commitments in the spring when deciding whether or not to take an AP exam. Some colleges and universities require that students taking AP courses take the corresponding exam. The exam fee is $115 for regular format exams and $125 for special format (World Language, Music Theory, Studio Art) exams. There will be no late registration so students will need to plan carefully. AP exams will take place from May 2-13, 2022.
For more information, refer to the letter Mr. Wong sent out in early September or visit the AP Exam Information link on the school or district website. Any questions, please contact AP Guidance Secretary, email@example.com.
