AP Exam Registration

Taking Advanced Placement exams are an important part of all AP courses. Golden High School recommends but does not require that students take AP exams for the AP classes that they are enrolled in. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. Find a college's AP credit policy here

This year each AP exam fee is $99. Online exam registration is now open and closes on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 11:59 PM.

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions, these questions are required by the College Board. Registration is complete once the student has printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may wish to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Golden High School requires that exam fees be paid online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. There is an option to mail in your payment as a check or money order. GHS does not accept payments in the school financial office.
