Advanced Placement (AP)
Exam Registration Overview
The registration window for ordering your AP Exam(s) begins Wednesday October 5th, 2020 and runs through Saturday October 31st, 2020. After Saturday October 31st, students registering for an exam will incur an additional $40.00 late fee (mandatory from College Board) on top of the $95.00 registration fee ($143.00 for Seminar Capstone).
To begin the registration process, please complete the Lewis and Clark High School AP Test Registration Form, then following the steps on the “thank you” message at the end of the form. AP Exams are currently planned to take place in the Spring in a traditional manner, but that may be re-evaluated depending on the circumstances as we move closer to the Spring.
If you have questions about the AP Program or the AP Exam Registration Process, please email your AP teacher or Theresa Meyer (Assistant Principal) at email@example.com.
If you have questions about payment options for AP Exams, please call or visit the Lewis and Clark High School Business Office at 509-354-6880. The LCHS Business Office is open Monday - Friday from 7:30am - 3:00pm.
Payment options for AP Exams
Each AP Exam costs $95.00. AP Capstone Seminar is $143.00.
Required Steps: The registration and payment process ends October 31. For students choosing to take the exams, they must commit to their exams in their College Board account AND complete the online registration process for payment at LC. Payments can be made to the Business Office or online through our District payment system. Starting next week, AP students will see this presentation in AP classes.
STEP 1: Students must create a College Board account AND enter the join code (provided by each teacher) to add the class to their account - about 60% of our AP students have done this - this is required even if the student is not taking the exam connected to their AP class. Do not try to order exams from this site, LC will do this step for you. If they are signing up for an exam and are not in an LC AP class, contact Theresa Meyer to get the special join code (this is for SVL and self-study students). This required step lets College Board know you are taking AP Exams.
STEP 2: Parents will need to fill out the online AP Registration Form - this form lets LC know you are taking AP Exams. You MUST do both steps in order to ensure that tests are ordered for you!
If your student qualifies for Free/Reduced lunch for the 2020-2021 school year, the State of Washington will pay 100% of testing fees. We have a small budget set aside to help offset costs for families that do not qualify for Free/Reduced lunch but may still need a little help.
LC must submit our AP order by early November, so payments will need to be made prior to the order. If your family has extenuating circumstances preventing you from paying by the deadline, we will work together to find a solution that ensures your child can take the exams.
If a student registers after the October 31 deadline, a $40 late fee will be assessed. This late fee is set by College Board and is not negotiable.
This year, there are NO fees for students who decide to not take the exams in May after ordering by the October 31 deadline. LC will issue full refunds for any student that does not test in May.
College Board AP Student Account/AP Course Join Codes
All AP students have a College Board account that gives them access to new free online resources from the College Board that their teachers will be using throughout the year. This account also gives students access to their previous PSAT, SAT, and AP test scores. Students are asked to register for their current AP Classes using the join code provided to them by their teacher. If students have questions about their join code, they can email their AP course teacher or Theresa Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students can access their MyAP Account by visiting https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/. If students have trouble accessing their MyAP account, it is recommended that they contact their AP Teacher or Mr. Dunn.
