Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. North Hills High School hopes that all students will take the AP exams for their corresponding AP classes. Preparing for and taking an AP exam can often allow students to build skills and confidence, earn college credit, and save a significant amount on future college tuition. Students choosing not to take the AP exam will still be responsible for completing all required coursework.
For the 2021 AP exams, students at North Hills High School will be registering online. Online Exam Registration will begin on Mon, Aug 24, 2020 at 8:00 AM and end on Fri, Oct 30, 2020 at 11:00 PM, with late registration open until Mon, Feb 15, 2021 at 11:00 PM. The AP exam registration process is two steps, but both can be completed in one sitting when the student and parent/guardian do this together. Even if you do not plan to take the AP exam, you need to complete both steps to access the College Board’s AP resources.
Step 1: Begin the process by registering at TotalRegistration.net/AP/393752. Here you will indicate both the AP courses you are taking this year and the exams you wish to take. You will receive your join codes and directions to complete the second required step. Any exam fees will be paid online so be sure to have a debit card or credit card available before beginning registration.
Step 2: Use the join codes provided at the completion of step one to enroll the student's AP courses and exams in the College Board's system at myap.collegeboard.org.
This year each AP exam costs $94 and families will be responsible for paying a portion of the exam. Your portion of the AP exam cost is $55. If you qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program, you will indicate so in the registration process. After approval, your exam cost will be $30. Students who do not submit payment for their exam will have their exam cancelled.
We desire for all students to fully benefit from our AP programs. Any students requiring additional financial assistance should contact Ms. Mincemoyer to learn more.
