AP Exam Scores
2018 AP Exam Scores will be available beginning July 6, 2018. You will need to sign up for a College Board account in order to gain access to your scores. More information regarding this process may be found at this College Board website.
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.
Students who register for the AP Chinese or Japanese language exams will be notified of their exam location by email in early April. Students who register for late exams will be notified of the location of their exams by email.
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.
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.
What Students Should and Should NOT Bring to the Exams

- Bring pens and pencils.
- Bring a calculator if the exam requires it.
