2. Fee reductions sponsored by the College Board and the State of Texas are available to families who qualify.

All students currently enrolled in free or reduced lunch will qualify for a significant fee reduction on AP® exams. If you are currently enrolled in free or reduced lunch, please see your Counselor or Audra Boney (office 2300) for a discount code BEFORE you register online.  Without this code, the online registration system will require you to pay full price for your exam(s).  You must register before the closing of regular registration (February 15, 2019.)

All students that registered using the fee reduction code will be verified by APTS and Audra Boney.  If an unauthorized student registers with a discount code, that student will not have their AP® exam ordered until they pay the full price.  If the full price is not paid within the regular registration time period, the $55 late fee will be applicable.  Nonpayment of full test price before the close of registration will result in exam(s) not being ordered and the partially paid fees will not be refunded.  Only register with a discount code if you have been authorized by your counselor or Audra Boney.

3.. If registering for two exams scheduled for the exact same time and date, contact Audra Boney in Office 2300 to determine which exam you will take during late testing because not all exams are offered during late testing.  Once you have received permission from Audra Boney, you will be able to register by contacting for special directions.

4. Registration Error / Change

If a student inadvertently registers for the wrong test, they must contact APTS no later than February 28, 2019.  If a student registers for a wrong test, the fee may be applied to the correct test.  There will however, be an additional $15 fee to cover the cost of returning the wrong AP® exam. 

5. Refunds

There will be no refunds issued for AP® testing after February 28, 2019.  A $17 fee will be deducted from the refund to cover the cost of returning the AP exam. To request a refund, email and include your name (student’s name), student ID number, school of enrollment, and the name of the exam that you want to cancel. Students choosing not to take their exam without notification in writing to APTS on or before February 28, 2019 receive no refund of fees and will be considered a no-show.

6. Students that miss their AP® test may qualify to take an alternate late exam.  Documentation will be required and will need to be submitted to your campus AP® Coordinator. Alternate late testing is allowed by College Board under the following circumstances:
