You’ll take one of them as a “Late Test.” Late Tests will be administered May 18-21. No extra fee is charged for schedule conflicts. Certain conflicts will incur a $40 late testing exam fee.

Free or Reduced Fees: Students who have a verifiable financial need are eligible for reduced fees. Please contact your school counselor.

Testing with Accommodations: January 15 is the final day to submit a request for testing accommodations to the College Board. Work with your School Counselor or Case Manager to submit a request, if necessary. If you are already approved by the College Board for accommodations, you do not need to refile. Please note that the request process can take seven weeks and does not begin until all required documentation is received.
