Registering for your 2023-24 AP Courses
FPS Virtual Academy encourages all students to take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.
For the 2024 AP exams, students at FPS Virtual Academy will be registering online. Online Exam registration will begin on Friday, September 1, 2023 at 8:35 am and end on Friday, March 8, 2024 at 4:00 pm. Only exams paid for by the deadlines listed below will be ordered. Both steps must be completed in order to have AP exams ordered:
Step 1: Register for the class and exam. You will need to join your AP course using the join code provided below for the appropriate class. You can join all AP courses you plan to take this year at the same time to avoid having to do this on multiple occasions. This is done at https://myap.collegeboard.org/login . You will login with your existing CollegeBoard student account (if you have previously taken AP, PSAT, or SAT exams) or you will create a new College Board student account. If you have previously taken exams, use the same account and do NOT create a new account to assure that your exam scores are linked each year.

Step 2: Pay for your exam. This year each AP exam costs $100.00. Students who receive free or reduced lunch are eligible for testing at a reduced price of $60.00 per test. The ND Department of Public Instruction has provided some additional incentives/fee reductions for exams in STEM areas in the past years. If you/your student qualifies for any of these reductions, you will be reimbursed for this part of the exam fees after the exam is taken. Students registering for AP tests after the March 8 deadline will be assessed a $40 late fee. Students who sign up to test and do not test are charged a $40 cancellation fee. Can pay by check to FPS Virtual Academy and send Attn: Vanessa Boehm to 700 S 7th Street, Fargo, ND 58103 or at SchoolPay following this link Exam Fee Payment to pay by credit card.
