Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What score do I need to earn on my AP exam so that I get credit from my college/university?
    Most colleges require a minimum score of 3 in order to earn college credit. (SEE THE END OF THIS DOCUMENT FOR MORE INFORMATION!) 
  2. What resources are available to help pay for exams?
    The WA State Legislature will fully subsidize the cost of 2020 AP exams for those students who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. However, parents must fill out the “Low-Income Student Verification Form” (see Links) and submit the form to Ms. Violette by November 1st.
  3. What if I don’t qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program but still can’t afford to pay for the exam?
    See Ms. Violette (AP Coordinator) in Room 503 or Principal Matt Grant.
  4. Can I receive accommodations if I have an IEP or 504 Plan?
    Having an IEP or 504 Plan does not automatically constitute authorization for accommodations (AP Manual 2020). A student must be approved by the College Board’s “Services for Students with Disabilities Office.”
    Students who think they qualify for an accommodation need to see the OHS counseling office.
    The deadline for submitting requests for accommodations is January 17, 2020.
  5. What if I register for an exam and then decide not to take the test?
    - Students can freely cancel tests prior to November 1st.
    - After tests have been ordered, the College Board charges $40.00 for every cancelled test.
    - OHS does not refund cancelled tests after tests have been ordered.
  6. What if I get sick or have an emergency on testing day?
    If sickness or an emergency make it impossible for a student to test, a late test will be ordered for that student at no additional cost.
  7. What if I can’t take my test on exam day because ___________ (e.g., sports; academic competitions; academic conferences, etc.)?
    The College Board will charge the school an additional $45.00 for students to test during the late testing period for reasons other than sickness or an emergency.
  8. When is late testing?
    May 20 – May 22
  9. What are the benefits of taking AP exams?

    Thousands of schools worldwide accept AP exam scores of 3 or higher for credit or advanced placement.

    All Washington State schools are required by law (S.B. 5234) to award credit for AP scores of 3 or better (out of a 5-point scale). These credits may be offered in place of a course (e.g., English 101 requirement is fulfilled by an AP English Language score of 3 or better), or these credits may fulfill elective requirements.

    The College Board offers awards to those students who are successful on multiple exams. (https://apscore.collegeboard.org/scores/ap-awards/ap-scholar-awards/
