If you do not qualify for a fee waiver, but would like to request assistance in paying for your exam(s), please select OPTION #3 when completing the Shadle Park AP Test Registration Form. If you select this option, you will be contacted at the phone number given for a phone/virtual meeting with Andre Wicks (Asstistant Principal) to discuss grant availability and payment options.
· The school 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.
· Please note that for the '20-'21 school year there are no fees for unused or cancelled exams.
