CORONAVIRUS IMPACT ON AP TESTING
All 2020 AP exams will be administered online through the Collegeboard website. Details are available on the College Board's website at https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students.
Some of the changes include a different assigned testing date, different assigned test time, test length, and test question type. AP Teachers are working hard to continue preparation for these exams remotely and are dedicated to helping students.
What Do I Need to Do?
- If you planning to take the exam or think you might, no action is required.
- If you are 100% sure you do not want to take the exam, you can request a cancelation by emailing Dr. Moore you can click here and in an email provide your first and last name, your AP number and which exam you are canceling. Please note that once an exam is canceled, the student will not be able to take the test if they change their mind at a later date.
- Students who wish to cancel need to request the exam cancelation by Friday May 8th, 2020.
- A refund will be provided to students ONLY if they request a cancelation by Friday May 8th, 2020. Any student who accesses their exam will not be given a refund.
- All refunds requested after April 1, will be recorded and funds will be dispersed after AP exams and AP exam make ups have been administered. You can expect to be reimbursed by the middle of June. Students that request a refund and take the exam anyway will be billed accordingly and could result in a hold on your records.
Students please make sure you are checking your email address associated with your Collegeboard account for updates and important test information.
Senior AP students, please update your Collegeboard account to include the college or university where you would like your score sent. This is a free service of Collegeboard and must be done before June 20th. Also, please make sure your email address that is connected to your collegeboard account is your personal email address and not your CVUSD email address
Please feel free to reach out to me or your AP teacher if you have any questions.
