From our Counseling Department:

AP Exam testing is just around the corner. With all students on campus again, testing is looking more like it has in the past. Please keep the following things in mind:

  • AP Exam Schedule: https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/exam-administration-ordering-scores/exam-dates
  • Exams can still be dropped/cancelled up through the end of April. There is a $40 cancellation fee per exam. If a student paid full price of $86, they would be refunded $46 after the cancellation fee was deducted. If a student paid the reduced lunch price of $15 per exam, they would owe $25 for cancelling their test.
  • If a student does not cancel their exam and does not show up for their exam, they will be charged the $40 cancellation fee.
  • There will be NO REFUNDS for exams starting May 1st.
  • Exam doors will shut at 8 AM and 12 Noon, if a student is not in the testing room when doors close, they will not be allowed to test. There are no make-up exams.
  • Students should report to testing with 2 #2 pencils and 2 black or blue pens. Snacks are allowed, but must be in a sealed container.
  • If you have questions or want to cancel an exam, please contact one of our AP Coordinators:
    • Sarah.Cable@pfisd.net
