Please view the attached PowerPoint and parent letter below for registration and payment information, as well as additional important information about taking AP exams. 
Beginning this year, 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 Friday, October 4, 2019.  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 October 4 deadline, NISD will cover a portion of each exam.  Students will continue to pay for AP Exams through Total Registration.  A $44 non-refundable deposit is required by Friday, October 4, with the final payment for all exams being Friday, February 21.
