AP Exams

Hello Mustang Families,

 

The window to purchase AP Exams is now open, and will close on October 17th. AP exams are $99 each. Students and families can go online using this link: https://mchswebstore.myschoolcentral.com 

You can also go directly to our school website: https://www.miracostahigh.org and click "STORE" and then click the "MCHS ASB” Webstore link.

Students can only use the online system if they are purchasing an exam for a class in which they are enrolled currently. If a student wants to take an exam, but isn’t enrolled in the actual class, they will need to do the following:

  • Go to the Main Office beginning 10/7 and see Mrs. Grings or Mrs. Berkes. 
  • They will be given a form to indicate the tests they want to take. 
  • They will be given the exam-only join code for their exam(s) of choice. 
  • They will register on College Board using the given join code. 
  • Mrs. Grings will give them authorization to pay for the exam(s). 
  • Finally, they will need to take the authorization to the Student Store and pay in person by October 17th.

All students, regardless of enrollment status, can pay for their exams in the Student Store. The Student Store will be open for AP Exam purchase during Snack and Lunch from October 7th-October 17th. All students interested in taking an AP exam for a class in which they are currently enrolled, or interested in taking an exam without taking the class, need to purchase tests during this window.

 

2nd Semester-only AP Classes:

If your child is taking a Spring semester-only AP class, they do not need to do anything at this time. When 2nd semester starts on January 6th, they will receive their join code, and be able to register through College Board, and pay for the exam at that time without incurring any fees. More information will be coming on that in January.

 

Late Purchasing:

From October 18th – October 24th students may purchase AP Exams for an additional $15 per exam.

 

No Refunds, No Exceptions:

Students will not be allowed to sign up to take the AP exam after the purchasing window closes for any reason, no exceptions. Also, because we have to order exams immediately, there are no refunds on AP Exams for any reasons, no exceptions. Please be sure when you make your final purchase. While you may see late-registration dates posted on College Board with additional fees associated, Mira Costa will not be accepting any fees past the October 24th deadline. We have to consider test-day logistics and will not be partaking in late exam ordering. If your child pays for the AP and decides not to take it, we will use the funds to pay the unused exam fee.

 

Streamlined Process:

Because your child registers on College Board using the join code given by the teacher, AP ID labels will now connect student’s to exam materials, and significantly reduce the time spent on bubbling student information before the exam. Also, pre-administration sessions will completely be eliminated, and students will receive personalized registration labels called AP ID labels on exam day in their testing room assigned.

 

More Information:

Below you will find the MCHS AP Exam Registration information form. It consists of all the AP’s we offer at MCHS, the exam dates and times, pricing, purchasing deadlines and the no-refund disclaimer. If you have any questions regarding AP testing you can contact Mrs. Grings @ tgrings@mbusd.org. Or, call Krishna Berkes at (310) 318-7337 x5026. If you have questions regarding the purchasing of AP's online, reach out to Donna Cessor in the Student Store or @ dcessor@mbusd.org.
