Advanced Placement Testing Info (AP)

April 6, 2020 Update for FUSD Advanced Placement students and parents:

The College Board has provided detailed updates on this year’s Advanced Placement testing. All AP exams will be done online in 45-minute testing sessions (with the exception of courses that require a portfolio submission). Each subject’s exam will be taken on the same day at the same time, worldwide. FUSD students will take the tests from home.

We encourage all parents and students to read the updates at the College Board website. Students, please log into your College Board account to ensure you are receiving updates from College Board. 

April 3, 2020 updates from College Board:

Refunds:

FUSD students may request a refund until May 8, 2020. Students will be refunded the entire testing fee minus $5 for processing charges per test ($105 refund for $110 tests and $135 for $140 tests). In order to request a refund, students and parents will need to request a refund via their account on Total Registration.


Technology:

The AP tests are computer based this year. If you need access to a computer or help with internet connectivity, you have two options for assistance:

  1. Contact your school’s principal or grade level administrator via email.
  2. College Board is taking requests for technology at this link.


Accommodations:

Students who have already been approved for College Board accommodations will have an exam version that reflects/meets their specific accommodation. If students have not already been approved, they will be unable to receive accommodations at this late date.

Students and parents can contact their case manager or AP site coordinator with their testing accommodations questions.

The comprehensive high schools within Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) seek to offer opportunities for all learners to demonstrate their proficiency in a variety of ways.  One such way is by partnering with the College Board to administer Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.  It is important to note that schools within FUSD are required to adhere to College Board requirements such as registration dates, testing policies, fee assessments, and more. College Board has required all schools to register students during the beginning of the school year, which is a change from past practice.  All students enrolled in a FUSD AP course are now required by the College Board to create an online account/profile. This account is a lifetime account which students will use to access their scores and register for exams. School sites will provide further information about AP exam sign ups.    

If you have specific questions please contact the AP Coordinator at your child’s school.
