AP exams will be administered Monday, May 4th through Friday, May 15th, 2020 on the OCSA campus. All students currently in an AP class at OCSA are eligible to take a corresponding AP exam. Because there is a sizable monetary obligation to taking AP exams and extensive study time involved, it is important for both students and parents to discuss and determine how many exams the student can realistically manage. Students are encouraged to register only for those exams they are committed to taking. An AP Bulletin will be distributed to students in their AP classes in January and can also be accessed on the College Board website.
PURCHASING AN EXAM – Students wishing to take an AP exam this year should register and pay for the exam(s) on OCSA's Student Store at MySchoolBucks.com beginning July 8th. The exam fee established by College Board for each test is $94.00, with the exception of AP Research and AP Seminar which cost $142. If your family qualifies for FRLP, the fee is $53.00. When ordering exams, we highly encourage both student and parent to be present to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. Please print/save your emailed receipt of payment for your records as students may be asked for this for future reference or refunds.
