DP's thriving AP program offers students a wide array of college-credit earning courses. Students can choose from the following AP courses in a variety of subject areas.
Registration for this year's Advanced Placement Exams is now open. Exams will be held May 3-14, 2021. Here is the key information about the process this year:
- The College Board is requiring students to register for exams in the fall for classes that start before November 15th, meaning classes they are enrolled in now.
- In order to complete the registration process, students must sign up using their MyAP account. [Note: This process should NOT be completed with an ‘sbunified’ email address. Students will not receive notifications about their exam from the college board if they use their sbunified email.]
- We will have a second time frame for students to sign up for AP Exams for classes that start Spring Semester.
- Students need to contact their counselor or case manager by January 15 to submit testing accommodations that may be in an IEP or 504 plan. This deadline is for fall and spring classes.
- For students that want to sign up for exams for courses DP does not offer, sign ups need to happen before the November 4th deadline. Otherwise, the College Board will charge the $40 late fee.
- Good news! The college board has removed the cancellation fee, so students can cancel their exam in March, and receive a full refund.
We will not be collecting fees for exams until February. More information will be sent out to families at that time.
For planning purposes, the cost is $100 per exam. For students that qualify for free or reduced lunch, the cost is $15 per exam. Complete this form to see if you qualify for free or reduced lunch: https://www.
