NEW REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT PROGRAM

  • For the 2021 AP exams, students at A N McCallum High School will be registering and paying online.

  • Online Exam registration is open now and due by November 13, 2020 to register without a late fee. A $40 fee will be added after November 13, for year-long and 1st semester classes.

  • You may continue to sign up with College Board until March 12th at 9:00 pm.  After that deadline, you will no longer be able to sign up for an AP exam.

REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT STEPS

Even if you do not plan to take the AP exam, you need to complete both steps to access the College Board’s AP resources.

 

Both steps must be completed in order to have AP exams ordered:

Step 1:

  • You will receive your join codes and directions to complete the second required step.

  • You also have the option to make a payment plan. (click "pay by check" to pay later - you can come back later to pay with credit card)


Step 2: 

  • Use the join codes provided at the completion of step one to enroll the student's AP courses and exams in the College Board's system.

  • It is VERY important to click "Yes/Confirm" if you are planning to take the exams.  

 

AP TESTING FEES

  • This year each AP exam costs $95.00. A N Mccallum High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams.

  • Students requiring financial assistance should contact Ms. Shelley Goldstein at shelley.goldstein@austinisd.org or Ms. Jody Ray at jody.ray@austinisd.orgin the McCallum HS to learn more.
