AP Test Registration Open.

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Ball High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2017 AP exams, students at Ball High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year, your first AP exam costs $85.00. The price is reduced for additional exams. Further, reduced fees are available for those that qualify for test fee waivers if eligible for free or reduced lunch. All fee reductions will be calculated via the registration system when you register for tests.

Online Exam registration will begin on Mon, Nov 28, 2016 at 12:00 AM and end on Sun, Feb 12, 2017 at 11:59 PM.
