Our most frequently asked questions are available here: Advanced Placement Registration FAQs

Important! - A successful exam registration will have resulted in a confirmation number.  

Confirmation of registration using MyPaymentsPlus is available in three ways: 1. An email is automatically generated and sent to the email address of the person registering with a summary of the transaction details. 2. You can check the "Payment History" tab in your MyPaymentsPlus, which will show a list of all valid registrations and payments. 3. It will appear on the homepage of MyPaymentsPlus while logged in to your account.


Exam Schedules and Location for 2019

Regularly scheduled Advanced Placement exams for 2019 begin Monday, May 6 and conclude Friday, May 17. With the exception of AP Chinese and Japanese exams that require the use of a computer lab, all other regularly scheduled AP exams take place at the Alliant Energy Center's Exhibition Hall at 1919 Alliant Energy Center Way in Madison. Parking is free.

*AP Chinese and Japanese language exams are only available for enrolled MMSD high school students. Students who register for the AP Chinese or Japanese language exams will be notified of their exam location by email in early April.
** AP Computer Science Principles exam is only available for students who are currently enrolled in an accredited AP CSP course, as half the exam grade is based on in-class work.

For students with conflicts during the regularly scheduled exams such as athletic events, DECA or the International Science and Engineering Fair, you may sign up for exams on the late schedule. The College Board charges an additional $30 for late testing when the conflict is due to activities and is not the result of signing up for exams that take place on the same date and time. Late testing is not permitted for other reasons. Any student signing up for a late schedule exam will be required to report the reason for the need to test on the late schedule.

For students who wish to register for 2 exams that take place on the same date and time, you must register for both exams on the regular schedule. You will not be charged the $30 late fee and the AP coordinator will notify you which exam will be held on the late schedule in late March.

2019 Regular Schedule AP Exams


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 February 22, 2019. 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


Preadministration Sessions - Attendance is Mandatory

MMSD students who register for AP exams must attend one 30-minute "preadministration" session to complete identifying information that is required by the College Board.  Having students complete this information on their answer sheets ahead of time can save up to 30 minutes or more on exam day.  Each high school will conduct 2 to 3 preadministration sessions in April.  The schedule for preadministration sessions by school are listed below.
