Bixby AP Students and Parents,
The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently announced significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees, and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year.
Next year, all students will decide whether or not to take exams and order their exams by Nov. 15, 2019. All students in AP classes who register after Nov. 15, 2019, will be assessed a $40.00/exam late fee. In addition, a $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be assessed for any exam order canceled after Nov. 15, 2019. You can view the timeline in detail at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019/for-ap-coordinators, under Fall Exam Ordering Overview.
It is important that all families are aware of these looming changes, especially as students begin registering for their 2019-2020 courses. We understand that these changes may cause concern for students, parents, and teachers. Please keep in mind that these changes are being mandated by the College Board and were not decided by Bixby Schools.
Additional details regarding the College Board’s new process will be made available once we have more information.
