****Important Changes to AP program****

 

Hello Shrewsbury Families,

 

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. 

AP Exams are the first two weeks in May every year. Typically, AP Exams are ordered in January or February of each school year. Next year, the timeline will change. All students will order their exams, by October 1, 2019. All students who want to take an AP exam and who 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. Requests for exams made after November 15 cannot be guaranteed. 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 changes, especially as students begin registering or studying 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. 

Please contact Ms. Susie Eriole, AP Coordinator at Shrewsbury High School, for questions or concerns. 

AP Registration

October 2018

Dear Students and Parents,

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Shrewsbury High School expects that all students take AP exams for the AP classes in which they are enrolled. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving some money on tuition.

For the 2019 AP exams, SHS students will register online. If you registered for an AP exam last year, your log in will remain the same this year. The cost of each AP exam is $110.00. There is a reduced fee for students on free and reduced lunch and if this applies to you, the registration process will guide you.

Online Exam registration will begin on Monday, October 15, 2017 at 8:00 AM and end on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 11:59pm. In order to register visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/221930. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may wish to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration.

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • October 15 - October 28 - Registration Period
  • October 29 - November 2 - Late Registration period and payments during this date will incur a $10 late fee, per exam.
  • November 2 - Registration Ends
  • November 21 - Registrations that have not been paid for will be cancelled and exams will not be ordered.

Please contact me if you have any questions. However, if you have specific payment problems or questions, please contact Total Registration directly at 1-800-974-2187 or via email.

Regards,

Susie Eriole
AP Coordinator

I'm not enrolled in AP classes now, how can I learn more?

Shrewsbury High School currently offers 19 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, engaging over 300 students in focused, higher-level studies. Through AP's college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit, advanced placement in college classes and stand out in the admission process.

Start by having a conversation with your current teachers who can tell you about the expectations and requirements for AP classes in their subject area. You should also discuss AP classes with your school counselor who can advise you on an academic plan. And lastly, you can attend AP Informational Night in late winter. Watch for more information about a date and time!
