3. Fee reduction/assistance – Fee reductions are possible for qualified students. If you feel you may qualify for a fee reduction, please submit the AP Fee Waiver Application Form (Linked here) to Ms. Bast in the counseling office. Once  eligibility has been confirmed, you will be provided with a Fee Reduction Code that will reduce the price of the exam(s) on the registration form to the appropriate amount.

4. Exam Locations: Exam Locations will be announced closer to the exam date, but they may be off campus. It is therefore necessary that we must receive a completed field trip form and Medical release for all students registering for AP Exams. Please download the form, complete it and return it to the WHS counseling office by April 11.. 

Click here to download the Off Campus Permission/Medical Release Form and submit it by April 11, 2019 to the WHS Counseling Office. 

5. Refunds are not possible.

6. College and universities with AP Credit Policies can be found on the College Board’s website AP Credit Search site  – It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the college they plan to attend will accept AP credit and submit scores to their university/college of choice.

Please keep in mind that many colleges will award credit for AP Test scores of 3 or higher. West High School therefore recommends that you participate in taking the exam(s). Current school board policy states that you must take the exam in order to earn additional points on the final student grade point average. You will have the option of sending scores to colleges you may want to attend.

7. Students who anticipate a conflict with another AP exam offered at the same date and time OR with an IB exam, should continue their registration. At the registration point it is subject specific information, not date information that is being gathered. APTS will run a report for your school to indicate conflicts and you will be contacted regarding your alternate AP exam date assignment when approved.

AP exam program information is available in the College Board “AP Bulletin for Students and Parents.”  Students are encouraged to review it.

Any additional AP questions can be sent to the AP Coordinator,
