REGISTRATION:

Hunterdon Central utilizes online registration for AP exams. The online AP exam registration window is as follows:

  • Regular registration: Monday, February 5, 2018, 7:00 AM to Monday February 19, 2018, 7:00 PM
  • Late registration ($10.00 per exam penalty): Monday, February 19, 2018, 7:01 PM to Friday, February 23, 2018, 7:00 PM.
  • Late-Late registration ($15.00 per exam penalty): Friday, February 23, 2018, 7:01 PM to Monday, February 26, 2018, 3:00 PM.
  • No registrations at all will be accepted after February 26, 2018, 3:00 PM.

Registration may be completed at any time within the registration window. Each student’s pre-gridded answer sheet - with all of the entered demographic information - is created by the online registration program. Therefore, it is imperative that students review the accuracy of all information before hitting the “submit” button. Be sure to print the PDF confirmation page as the final registration step.

Payment for exam fees can be made using a credit or debit card, or by mailing the payment to the address given in the registration program. This year, the cost of each AP exam is $98.00.

Please note that students on the Federal Lunch Program will not be charged once they check the box asking, “Are you qualified for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program?” 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 asking, “Will you be asking for financial assistance in paying for AP exams?” Download the Financial Assistance Application - posted on the right side of this webpage - and turn in the completed application to your counselor no later than February 19, 2018.

Please contact Nancy Bennett at nbennett@hcrhs.org if you would like to register for an exam not listed on the registration form or if you have any questions.
