2020 AP Exam Schedule


Did You Know?

Testing accommodations present on an IEP or 504 are not applied to Advanced Placement exams. The College Board requires students seeking testing accommodations for AP exams to apply privately for approval before any accommodations may be granted in May. This year's deadline for application for approved accommodations is January 17, 2020. Families may apply after this date, but there is no guarantee the College Board will review late applications in time for administration in May. Additional information regarding this application process may be found here. Your school has a College Board designated Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) coordinator who can assist in the application process. Please contact your school's AP coordinator if you are unsure who to speak to regarding the process.


AP World Language Credits at UW Schools

If you are planning to attend a University of Wisconsin school, please review the school's policy for AP credits before registering for your AP world language exams.  In some cases, you can receive retroactive credit for high school coursework without having to take an AP exam.

From the University of Wisconsin's website:  "In some schools and colleges it is possible to earn retroactive language credits for prior work completed in a foreign language.  Contact the language department to learn more about retroactive credits and to determine which type of credit (AP or retroactive) will best meet your needs."  To go to the UW site, click here


 What Students Should and Should NOT Bring to the Exams

  • Bring a photo ID to the exam. You will not be admitted without one.
  • Bring pens and pencils.
  • Bring a calculator if the exam requires it.
  • Do NOT bring cell phones or any electronic communication devices. You will be expected to turn all such devices in before testing begins.
