Advanced Placement (AP)

College Board Mandated AP Changes for Next School Year

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 that register after Nov 15, 2019, will be assessed $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 the school.

Additional details regarding the College Board’s new process will be made available once we have more information.


AP classes are a unique opportunity for students to gain college credit from taking high school classes. AP classes are recognized by most universities as college credit for general education requirements and often for degree requirements. AP classes prepare students for the rigor of college classes, and many studies have concluded that completing AP classes are the best indicator of whether or not a student will successfully complete a degree in college. Many universities give priority admission to those students who have completed AP classes.

The following AP Classes offered at CHHS may generate college credit through an AP exam.
