AP Examinations: This year, there has been a change to the exam ordering process.  The exams must be ordered much earlier this year compared to previous years.  The cost of each exam is $94 ($142 per exam for AP Research and AP Seminar).  There is a $40 non-refundable deposit fee that is due by October 4th with the remaining balance due by February 14th.    There is an option to pay on-line through GHS, but you would have to pay the full $94 amount (plus 3.5% convenience fee).  

October 4th - $40 deposit due per exam

February 14th - balance due

Have a Great Week!
