Naperville Central High School's AP Policy



Regular registration runs from August 19, 2021 through November 5th, 2021.  Late registrations received between November 6, 2021 to March 4, 2022, will incur a $40, non-refundable late fee. 

Students taking second semester only classes  who plan to take the AP test must register for those exams by 3pm on March 4th 2022 to avoid a late fee.


If you did not pay online, please bring a copy of your registration form and payment (make checks payable to NCHS), to Mrs. Ericson in 13-B in the Learning Commons.  Exams that are not paid for by November 5, 2021 will be cancelled and the exam will not be ordered.

Alternate Test Dates

If a student wants to take two exams that are being offered at the same time, the system will accept the registration, however, one of the exams will become an "alternate exam."  The Testing Coordinator will determine which exam is to be the "alternate" and will inform you of the time, date and cost of your alternate exam.  Please note that the alternate exam dates are May 17-20, 2022.  


Students will be "excused" periods 1-5 for a morning exam and periods 4-8 for an afternoon exam.  Parents do not need to call the attendance office if their student is taking an AP exam.  Students are expected to attend any regularly scheduled classes, before or after their scheduled AP exam.

Cancellation Policy

Last date for a FULL refund of $98.00: November 5, 2021

Last date for a PARTIAL refund of $58: March 4, 2022

Students need to request to cancel their exam through Total Registration, or put the cancellation request in writing, and submit that request to Mrs. Ericson, Testing Coordinator, no later than Wednesday, March 4th 2022.

We encourage students NOT to cancel an AP Exam because we believe the experience of taking the exam is a valuable culmination to the AP experience.  Exam cancellations made after March 4, 2022, will not receive a refund, however, it is extremely important that you notify Mrs. Ericson if your student is not taking an exam. 

We are very proud to have so many students participating in the AP curriculum at NCHS and appreciate your cooperation with the exam registration process.  We will do our best to ensure a positive exam experience for our students.  Please contact one of us if you have questions.
