The 2024 AP Exams will be administered over two weeks in May: May 6-17. You may find the whole schedule here.  

All students currently in an AP class at CSArts-SGV are eligible to take a corresponding AP exam. Students are encouraged to register and pay only for those exams they are committed to taking.   

PURCHASING AN EXAM – Students wishing to take an AP exam this year should pay for the exam(s) through their MySchoolBucks account that they set up during online summer registration (available now). The exam fee established by College Board for each test is $98. If your family qualifies for FRLP, the fee is $65. When ordering exams, we highly encourage both student and parent to be present to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. Please print/save your emailed receipt of payment for your records as students may be asked for this for future reference or refunds. The deadline for purchasing an exam is Wednesday, November 1 at 11:59 p.m. Students must purchase exams on MySchoolBucks and register with their AP teacher’s AP Classroom section on the College Board website. They will then indicate whether they intend to take the exam or not on AP Classroom. Every student who indicates “yes” must also have purchased the exam through MySchoolBucks. The deadline to turn their indicator on AP Classroom is Monday, November 6 at 11:59 p.m. Teachers will remind students regularly to make sure to do both if they intend to take an exam.

REFUND POLICY - If a student registers for an exam and cancels:

  • ON or BEFORE  March 11, 2024, a PATRIAL REFUND will be issued (Price paid - $40 for unused exam fee by College Board).
  • ON or AFTER  March 12, 2024, NO REFUNDS will be issued.

LATE TESTING POLICY - College Board’s policy for administering alternate AP exams can be found here. CSArts-SGV only offers late-testing when multiple tests are offered at the same time or in emergency situations. Depending on the circumstances, late-testing may require additional fees to cover ordering and proctor fees.
