About the AP Exam
One of the great benefits of taking an AP class is that students will have the opportunity to earn college credits if they pass the AP Test at the end of the course.
However, simply being enrolled in an AP class is not enough. In order to register to take the AP Test, students must:
1. Register for each AP course on at myap.collegeboard.org. Students should have received their join codes from each AP teacher.
2. Go to aptsusa.com/libertyhs and pay a nonrefundable deposit for the tests. The amount may vary depending on the class and the number of tests.
If your student is not planning on taking the test for a course, please submit an AP Exam Opt Out Form.
If you think you may qualify for a discounted test, please submit a request for a Fee Reduction. You will be contacted directly by phone or email if you qualify.
Both of these steps must be completed by October 30 to avoid additional fees and delays.
