AP Exams

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to take AP Exam payments on campus. Therefore, we will be using an online payment system (APTS) for the 2020-21 school year.

All AP students should have already registered on AP Classroom for each of their AP classes. By doing so, you are automatically registered to take the AP exam for those classes. Starting November 17, students will receive an invoice from APTS along with a link to pay online via credit card. Please note that, although you are automatically registered to take all AP exams for the AP classes you are enrolled in, you only have to pay for the exams you actually want to take. There are no cancellation fees this year. All AP exam payments are due February 11, 2021.


AP Exam Fee Breakdown
Students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch through the district pay a set fee for all AP exams. $10/exam
If a student does NOT qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch, the cost of each AP exam depends on if the exam is supported by the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI). The AP exams supported by NMSI have a reduced fee. These exams include:

  • All AP Computer Science courses
  • All AP Physical Science courses
  • All AP Math courses
  • AP English Language (Lit is not supported)
NMSI-supported exams $50/exam
All other exams are full-priced if a student does not qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch. $97/exam

Note: When paying via credit card on the APTS payment system, you will incur a 3% transaction fee.


How do I register on AP Classroom?

Follow this guide. You will need to ask each of your AP teachers for a code to add their class. If you are having difficulty logging in or registering, let one of your AP teachers know and they will help you!

What if I can’t afford to pay for my AP exams?

We will be sending a survey out to all AP students to document financial need. We will then assess the extent to which we may be able to provide further financial assistance through the SUHI Foundation.

Can I pay in person?

At this time, we cannot accept in-person payments.

How do I apply for Free/Reduced Lunch?

Follow the instructions on the district Nutrition Services page. The deadline to apply for Free/Reduced lunch has been extended to December 31, 2020.

How can I avoid the 3% transaction fee?

You may opt to send a check to APTS rather than paying via credit card. Instructions on how to do so will be available when you receive your invoice. The ASB will not be handling any of the payments this year.

When will I get my invoice?

You can expect to receive your invoice via email on or around November 17, 2020.

When are payments due?

AP Exams must be paid in full by February 11, 2021.
