AP Exam Accommodations for Students with Disabilities:

 

Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for accommodations on AP Exams.  However:

  • In order to take an AP Exam with accommodations, a student must be approved by the College Board's Services for Students with Disabilities office. 
  • Having an IEP or 504 Plan does not automatically constitute authorization for testing accommodations (AP Manual 2018).

If you think you may be eligible, visit the College Board site for more information then see school psychologist Ms. Hernandez in Hall 1 immediately for help with submitting your request to the College Board.

The deadline for submitting requests for accommodations is February 23, 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What Resources are available to help pay for exams? 

  • Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch pay only $10 per exam. Form is required (link is above). 
 

What if I don't qualify for the fee reduction but still can't afford to pay for the exam(s)?

  • See Ms. Violette (AP coordinator) or Principal Matt Grant and explain your situation.
  • We may be able to help you offset the costs, depending on your circumstances.

What if I don't want to spend $94 per exam?

  • In the long run, you could be saving yourself and your family a significant amount of money.
  • $94 -- instead of the cost of tuition for a college class -- is a HUGE savings.

Why take an AP exam?

  • Earn college credit.
  • Skip that 100 level college class (Advanced placement in college).
  • Leave more room in your college schedule for high-interest classes.
  • Be competitive!  Colleges question your follow through/ability in a subject if you take the AP course but do not have test scores.
  • Cancel your scores if necessary.  If you don’t do as well as you thought you might, it won’t go on your transcript and you can always cancel your scores.
  • Graduate college early and start your career sooner.
 

What if the colleges I've applied to won't offer credit for AP exams?

  • Thousands of schools worldwide accept AP exam scores of 3 or higher for credit or advanced placement.
  • Even if your school won’t accept it:
    • You may want to transfer later.
    • You can see how you compare with students nationally.
    • You wanted a challenge or you wouldn’t have taken the class; why not see what you’re made of?
