Please note: students enrolled in an AP course who take the AP Exam will receive full AP weight for the course. If the AP Exam is not taken, Honors weight will be applied to the course.

College Board charges Hunterdon Central $40 AP exam cancellation fee after November 15 at 11:59 PM. This fee will be applied to AP exam cancellation requests received after November 15, 2022, at 11:59 PM. No refund is issued if the exam is canceled after January 27, 2023.

Cost of AP Exams:

The cost of each AP exam is $105.00. Please note that students on the Federal Lunch Program may check the box during the registration process that asks, "Are you qualified for Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program?" Once the current status of the student's Free or Reduced Lunch Program is verified, the request will be approved and the exam fee will be waived.

Additionally, Hunterdon Central has created a financial assistance program for families who do not qualify for the Federal Lunch Program, but who may have difficulty paying the full exam fee. To apply, students must check the box on the registration form asking, “Will you be asking for financial assistance in paying for AP exams?” Download the Financial Assistance Application, and turn in the completed application to counselors by the assigned date. More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
