Please note that the process and deadlines for registering for AP exams have changed significantly for the 2020-2021 school year.  It is critical that you review all of the following information, and all emails sent home by the district/campus and your student's AP teachers.  

Please view the attached PowerPoint and parent letter below for registration and payment information, as well as additional important information about taking AP exams. 

The College Board will be providing free resources for students & teachers through 
My AP Classroom.  AP teachers will work with students in the first week of school to get access.  Additionally, students will commit to taking their AP Exam by the new deadline of November 6th, 2020.  Research has shown that students who commit to taking the exam earlier in the year increase the likelihood of earning a 3 or higher.   Northwest ISD continues to be committed to supporting your success not only instructional but financially as well.  For students who register for their AP Exam(s) by the November 6th deadline, NISD will cover a portion of each exam.  Students will pay for AP Exams through Total Registration.  Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch will also qualify for additional AP Exam discounts bringing their exam fees to $15 per exam. If you would like to apply for free/reduced lunch please visit the following link: http://bit.ly/NISDFRL.    Please look for an email from NHS with additional details on Monday, August 26.
