If it is necessary for me to use recovery during first semester to pass the course, it may be recommended that I withdraw from the class for second semester.
With a first semester unweighted grade of 69 or lower, my teacher, counselor and administration will conference with myself and my parents and I will be subject to removal from the class. I am aware that my final transcript will show the final semester grade earned up to that point.
The $15.00 administrative fee is non-refundable.
I am expected to take all AP exams for the classes in which I am enrolled. If I do not take the exam(s), I will not be permitted to register for any further AP courses.
Please fill out the requested information that is requested below, have your parents sign the form, sign the form yourself, and return it to Dr. Fowler by April 1, 2012. I am requesting to sign up for the following AP Classes that I checked above.
Below is the fee schedule for the 2010-2011 school year. Please note that these fees are subject to change as per the College Board. Fee Schedule: 1 Exam $102
2 Exams $189

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a program of college courses and exams for secondary school students which have been administered nationally since 1955 by the College Board. AP courses make it possible for academically talented high school students to upgrade the quality and increase the challenge of their studies. Essentially, AP courses allow students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.
AP Exams are College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) sponsored tests, which many colleges give advanced standing and/or credit. They are administered in May. Most AP courses are yearlong in order to prepare the students for the exams. Examination fees for the exam(s) are usually funded by the state. All students who have a passing grade at the time of the exam are required to take the test if state funding is provided.
Most U.S. colleges and universities, and institutions in more than 20 other countries, grant credit, advanced placement, or both, to students whose AP Exams meet their requirements. Students earning a 3 or higher usually earn college credit or exemptions from required classes. Students should ask the institution of their choice to see what AP classes and scores are acceptable. To investigate a college’s AP Policy, visit www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy.
Students may elect to send their AP score(s) to the colleges or universities to which they are applying, or they may withhold their score(s). If an AP score is withheld, it may be forwarded later. Scores are sent from the College Board per the student’s request (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/exgrd_rep.html or call College Board at 888-308-0013). The following information will be needed to request scores: AP number; Social Security Number; Date of Birth; Exam year that corresponds with your AP number; Four-digit College Code for the college you are having your scores sent; and a valid credit card number (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa).
