Katy, TX News (February 18, 2014) – High school students in Katy ISD may register for Advanced Placement exams at their home campus Feb. 24-March 7, 2014. Late registrations will be accepted through March 19, 2014 with a late fee of $5/exam. Students interested in taking the AP Chinese or AP Japanese exam must submit registration to the campus by March 6. Each high school will announce the details of the registration process at the home campus.?
All students who are enrolled in AP courses in Katy ISD are strongly encouraged to participate in AP exams. An Advanced Placement (AP) exam score of three or better is counted as an advanced measure for Distinguished Achievement graduation recognition (DAP). However, students are not required to take the exam, and the exam has no bearing on the high school course grade.
Fee waivers are available for students on free or reduced lunch. Homeschooled students may register in person at the high school campus in their attendance zone during the registration window.
A partial refund of $30 per exam is available for seniors who have been admitted to a college and who have documentation that the college will not accept AP exam scores for credit. Refunds must be requested in writing to the home school counseling office by May 2, 2014 with documentation from the college or university’s AP exam policy.
Students in special economic circumstances (on free and reduced lunch) must identify that need during exam registration. All requests for additional fee waivers must be made during the registration period (Feb. 24-March 7, 2014) to ensure that proper arrangements are made for the student. AP Coordinators will confirm eligibility for any fee waivers. Students in need of testing accommodations must adhere to the College Board timeline for these requests. Contact the AP Coordinator with any questions.
AP exams are scheduled for the weeks of May 5-9 and May 12-16. To determine the exact date of a particular exam, visit www.collegeboard.com.
Scores of three, four or five on AP exams are generally accepted for college credit; however each college or university has its own policy on awarding college credit or advanced standing. Students are responsible for checking the policy at the university or college they plan to attend by contacting the university or by visiting the College Board’s website at www.collegeboard.com.
