    The College Board states that:  “To ensure fairness to all students, late testing using an alternate form of the examination will be allowed only in extreme circumstances." 

    In the event that a “Late Test Date” is necessary for any student:

    • The College Board charges a $45 Late Test for each test.
    • Also, a $50 Proctor Fee  will be charged for each test given (to be split evenly between all students taking each test).

    These fees may NOT be waived for any reason.

     

    Students who wish to take an AP test in any subject not offered as a class at Mountain Crest HS must contact Mrs. Jensen no later than March 1st.

    This is to ensure that:

    1. The student knows the extent of the test & can obtain appropriate study material.
    2. Deposit is paid so that the test is ordered.
    3. In addition to the AP Testing Fee,a $50 Proctor Fee will also be charged for each test.
