About AP Examinations

AP Examinations are offered each May through the Educational Testing Service (ETS), usually in high schools that offer college-level courses based on AP course descriptions. Each high school that administers the examinations sets its own registration deadline and collects fees. Reports of AP Examination results are mailed by The College Board in mid-July to those institutions which have been designated by students. Students should contact their school counselor for specific details on how AP Examinations are handled at their school. Official score reports from ETS must be submitted directly to Longwood for transfer credit evaluation.

Test Scores Accepted For AP Credit

Note: Students who complete more than one test for the same Longwood course equivalency will only receive credit for one course.
