2022-23 AP Test Opt-Out Timeline and Fees

  • As part of the FCPS FY 2022 Approved Budget, FCPS is continuing to assess Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) test fees. As in previous years, the fees for the first six AP/IB tests taken for courses in which students are enrolled for high school credit will be paid for by FCPS. Students taking AP tests without enrolling in the corresponding FCPS course are responsible for the test fee(s). 
  • FCPS encourages all students to take AP/IB tests for courses in which they are enrolled. However, students will have the opportunity to opt-out of the test(s) by filling out an Opt-Out form to be provided by the school. To assist in the decision-making process, students will be provided a report with their previous tests and current AP/IB course enrollment. AP/IB students must make Opt-Out decisions in October 2022 and parents will be billed a $96 non-refundable test fee in December 2022 for tests that exceed the six FCPS funded tests. 
  • Reference the College Board 2023 AP exam dates site for dates of AP Exams.  All 2023 AP exams will be taken in school and most will be taken in a paper/pencil format.
