AP Testing Conflicts
Students may have conflicts with their AP tests, in some cases these conflicts will not impose additional fees. However, in many cases testing conflicts will add additional fees to the costs of the exam.
- If a student has two AP tests scheduled for the same date and time, an alternate test can be scheduled without additional fees. This should be worked out prior to ordering any AP tests or students will incur the additional costs of the tests.
- If a student has a school activity that necessitates their scheduling an alternate exam, the student will have an additional fee of $45 for each test taken on an alternate date.
