Dear Students and Families,

Please view the schedule for in-person, paper/pencil AP exams scheduled for May 3rd - May 17th. This information is also posted on our York AP website.

Students registered for AP Exams must arrive based on the times listed on this schedule (not the times advertised by College Board) and report directly to their testing room.

Students will be excused (Field Trip) from their classes periods 1-6 for morning exams and periods 5-8 for afternoon exams. This allows time for lunch, as well as travel time for remote students. All students are expected to attend their class periods that meet outside of their morning or afternoon testing windows. 

Please note that some of the afternoon exams run later than the school day. Be aware of transportation needs and any after school activities that may be missed. All students, both In-Person and  Remote, must remember to complete the self certification process before school on the day of each of their exams. Remote students may take the morning bus on their exam day and must coordinate transportation home when the morning tests conclude.

Students with  approved College Board accommodations must report to the Flex Lab (outside of the Learning Commons) for each AP exam.

Make sure to bring your ID, pencils (non-mechanical), blue/black ink pens and a bag to store your cell phone and/or fitness tracker devices (i.e. Apple Watch) at the side of the testing room. Staff will ask students to show that their cell phone is turned off when entering the room.

Questions about the 2021 AP Exam Administration can be directed to the York High School AP Coordinators - Ryan Walz or Lisa Julian.

Dear Advanced Placement Students and Families:

Welcome to AP Testing 2020-2021! This introductory letter provides general information about the dates/times of AP exams, as well as how to confirm and pay for AP exams this year. 

  1. MyAP: AP students should log into their student College Board Account and check their MyAP Classroom to make sure they are registered for each AP exam they plan to take in May. This is the system that the College Board requires York to use in order to place our test order. The deadline to order for full year/semester 1 courses was November 13, 2020; however, we can still add to our test order until March 10th with a $40 late fee per exam. The deadline for semester 2 ordering is March 10th. After March 10th, the College Board does not allow additional test ordering. 

**Students should have completed MyAP registration in their AP courses.** 

  1. Payment: Payment for each AP exam will confirm the exams a student plans to take in May.

    • NEW FOR THIS YEAR, York will use PushCoin to pay for AP exams. Students will need to purchase all tests individually in PushCoin. The fee for each AP exam is $98.00, and the deadline for payment is April 7th. 

    • Exams will be cancelled if full payment is not received by 11:59pm on April 7th.  

    • Late Fee: If you are in a full year/1st semester course and did not register for MyAP by November 13th, you can still register by March 10th. CollegeBoard charges a late fee of $40.00 for any registrations November 14th - March 10th.

    • Full refunds available until May 2nd. No refunds will be given after testing begins.

    • Fee Reductions: Students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch will pay $40.00 per exam in PushCoin. Any student that needs help paying for their AP exam(s), yet does not qualify for free or reduced lunch, may apply for assistance through the Dukes Helping Dukes (DHD) program. DHD applications are available with our social workers or can be found here. All DHD applications need to be received by April 7th. Please note: regardless of any assistance provided, all students must pay $40 per exam through PushCoin. Late fees will also apply if a student registers after November 13th for a full year/semester 1 course. 


  2. Exam Dates: the College Board came up with several options for schools. York decided to test students using Paper/Pencil, which is Administration 1 during the first 2 weeks of May.


4. Any student, remote or in person, is able to test Paper/Pencil in person if comfortable. If a student is ill, quarantined, or cannot test during Administration 1, they will then need to test with a digital exam at home during Administration 2 or 3.  Please fill out this Google Form to indicate your choice to test digitally. ** Language/Music Theory Exams are only offered in person with paper/pencil.
