Dear BHS Parents and Students,
Taking the Advanced Placement exam is an important part of all AP courses. Scoring well on an AP exam can earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.
This year the College Board cost for AP exams is $93.00 per exam. BISD and BHS will be contributing to reduce the cost for students. For students enrolled in more than three courses where they are taking an exam, Burleson High School will pay for all exams after the first three. If a student qualifies for the free or reduced lunch program, the exam fee will be reduced more. Please see the chart below for specific amounts.
2016-2017 Regular Exam Fee
1 Exam = $63.00
2 Exams = $126.00
3 Exams = $189.00
2016-2017 Free/Reduced Lunch Exam Fee
1 Exam = $15.00
2 Exams = $30.00
3 Exams = $45.00
For 2017 AP exams, registration will begin February 5th and end February 9th. Registration will be completed online through Total Registration. The registration link and additional details will be sent in January, but we wanted to send the fees in advance to give families plenty of time to plan financially.
