    Advanced Placement (AP)

    Grandview High School offers a comprehensive Advanced Placement (AP) program. AP, sponsored by the College Board, is an intensive program of college-level courses and examinations offered in high school. AP examinations are graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 indicating “no recommendation”, and 5 indicating “extremely well qualified.” The College Board, the Advanced Placement Program, and the American Council on Education concur that grades of 3, 4, and 5 should be consid-ered qualifying grades by colleges and universities. Students who take an AP course are expected to take the exam.  Stu-dents who earn satisfactory grades on AP exams may be granted credit by their college or university. Each college or university has its own criteria for awarding AP credit.  Students are encouraged to check with the individual institution.  Students may also be eligi-ble for AP Scholar awards which recognize high school students who demonstrate college-level achievement on specified numbers of AP exams. The Advanced Placement Program charges a fee (approximately $100 per test) for each examina-tion taken. Financial aid is available, as needed.  Additional information is available from the AP Coordinator, Mr. Trevor Watrous, in L104 or from the Grandview Counseling Department.

    AP Exam Registration 2019 - 2020

    There are multiple changes to AP registration and ordering for the 2019-2020 school year. Please take a minute to review the following information about upcoming AP changes as it contains important details, most notably:

    • Deadline to register for an AP exam(s) will now be in the fall, instead of in February. Students must register by November 1, 2019 for full-year and first-semester courses.  Students taking a second-semester AP course will have until February 28, 2020, to register for their exam(s).
    • College Board has implemented a $40 (per exam) late fee for exams ordered after the deadline and also a $40 cancellation fee (per exam) for exams which are cancelled after November 15, 2019 or March 13, 2020 (second semester).

    AP Exam Ordering Process

    • Parents and students will no longer be using a third party vendor as we have used in the past to register and pay for AP exams. Students will now use myap.collegeboard.org to gain access to class resources and materials as well as register for exam(s).
    • AP teachers have received a class-specific “access code” that they will share with students to access materials and resources on the College Board site. This will also be where students will register online for their AP exam(s).

    *Note – students should not create a second College Board account. If they are having issues accessing their previous account, or creating a new account, please have them visit L104. 

    2019-2020 AP Exam Fees

    • Cost of a standard AP exam ordered by November 1, 2019 without any late fees assessed = $95/exam.   (February 28, 2020, for second-semester AP courses only)
    • Cost of an exam for students who qualify for free/reduced lunch who order by November 1, 2019 = $20/exam. (February 28, 2020, for second-semester AP courses only)
    • Orders placed after November 15, 2019, will be subject to a $40 late registration fee. (March 13, 2020, for second-semester AP courses only)

    Payment for AP Exam(s)

    • Check or Cash – bring to L104 in person

    *Note: Checks should be made out to Grandview High School. A receipt will be provided for check/cash payments.

    • Credit Card – Online through the GHS website (under “Payments” à “AP Testing”). This will direct you to RevTrak to complete payment online. There is an additional 3.6% service charge for online credit card payments. A receipt will be sent via email.

    Financial Aid and Assistance

    • Financial aid is available for students who meet the criteria for free and reduced lunch. Students need to bring a copy of their Letter of Eligibility to L104. To request a copy of this letter, you may contact Food and Nutrition Services office at (720) 886-7172.
    • Financial concerns should not prevent a student from taking an exam. If needed, please see Mrs. Gallagher or Mrs. Ulitzky in L104 to create a payment plan. A minimum amount per exam will be required prior to the initial registration deadline.
    • All payments associated with a payment plan must be completed by March 31, 2020.

    Cancellation of exams

    Exams cancelled by November 15, 2019, will be subject to a full refund. Exams canceled after this date will be charged a $40 cancellation fee. Students must stop by L104 or contact Kathy Gallagher at (720) 886-6640 or kgallagher7@cherrycreekschools.org if they wish to cancel an exam and receive a refund. Students in a second-semester AP course should follow this same process by February 28, 2020, to cancel their exam in order to receive a full refund.
