AP Testing

  • Welcome to the AP Testing Program at RHS!



    AP Students,

    Since there is no cancellation fee this year, we have decided to order exams for all students and postpone the AP Registration/Payment period. 

    The AP Registration/Payment period will take place from January 15th through March 1st. We will cancel any exams for students who do not Register/Pay for their exam fee by March 1st. This will give you more time to decide if you are prepared to take the exam and will allow you time to save for the exam fees, if needed. We will send another email with further details, when we return from Winter Break in January.

    It is extremely important you join your AP Classroom as soon as possible because the AP Order for our school is created using the AP Classroom information. 

    A few reminders:

    AP Exam Fee: $95 per exam

    VUSD One-Time AP Exam Fee Waiver: You can only use one throughout HS and you must submit an application during the registration period. 

    College Board Fee Waiver: You must demonstrate financial need by completing the Student Funding Form: https://onlineapps.vusd.org/. Your parents can do this now so you are verified by the time the registration period opens. If your parents need to complete this form using a paper copy, please email Ms. Zarco or Mr. Cole. If you qualify for the College Board Fee Waiver, your AP Exam fee is waived

    About AP Scores

    Completing an AP course and exam is a huge accomplishment. You should feel very proud about the work you’ve done and the skills you’ve learned. Your AP score is one way to share this accomplishment with others, like colleges and universities. The final exam score is reported on a scale from 1–5 and shows how well you’ve mastered the content of the course.

    Scores of 3, 4, or 5 can also get you credit for a college course or enable you to skip the equivalent college course (this is known as advanced placement). Policies vary by college – explore credit policiesfor Colleges and Universities will (OPEN) open in a new window to learn more. To be considered for credit or placement, you must send your official AP score report to the college you’re planning to attend.
