However, students are not required to take the exam, and the exam has no bearing on the high school course grade.</p><p>Fee waivers are available for students on free or reduced lunch. Home-schooled students may register in person at the high school campus in their attendance zone during the registration window. </p><p>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 <span style="text-decoration:underline;">in writing</span> to the home school counseling office by May 1, 2015 with documentation from the college or university's AP exam policy.</p><p>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 <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong><em>during the registration period (February 16-March 4, 2015)</em></strong></span> 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.</p><p>AP exams are scheduled for the weeks of May 4-8 and May 11-15.  To determine the exact date of a particular exam, visit <a href="http://www.collegeboard.com/" style="text-decoration:underline;">www.collegeboard.com</a>. </p><p>Scores of 3, 4 or 5 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 <a href="http://www.collegeboard.com/" style="text-decoration:underline;">www.collegeboard.com</a>.</p><p>Contact the AP Coordinator at the home campus for more information about the AP program and AP exam registration.</p></div>
