  • College Board has decided that no cancellation fees will apply to tests that have been canceled this year.  If you had not previously canceled your test prior to school closing, you will have up until the time of the test to make this decision.  If you log in and take it, GREAT!  Your hard work has paid off.  If you choose not to login, then a refund will be issued.  You do not need to report to the school that you are choosing to cancel the test, however by completing the refund form on the AP web page it will make it easier and faster to process any refunds.  Please note it is likely that refunds will not be processed until the fall when we return to school.
