SCHEDULED TEST DATESJune 1-11,  2021

Registration for AP exams closed on November 12th, 2020.

Testing Options

At this time, the expectation of the CollegeBoard is to have students test in-person, and  there is not an option for online exams.  The CollegeBoard may decide later to offer an online testing option, but we have no information about that at this time. As you know, Seattle Public Schools are operating 100% remote right now, and we do not know if Seattle Public Schools will be open for in-person learning when tests are administered in May. If we are not open, and the CollegeBoard does not offer an online option, students will likely not be able to take the AP Exams.

PAY FOR AP EXAMS: Make payment via Schoolpay on a parent Source account. Schoolpay access will be available February 2021.

Standard exam fee is $102.00 and free to Students who have qualified for Free & Reduced Lunch, students will need to provide proof of eligibility by contacting Amy Doll.  Students who do not qualify for FRL but need financial assistance, please contact Amy Doll at asdoll@seattleschools.org
