Parent Permission for Testing and Transportation:

The parent/guardian acceptance on the Online Registration and Paper Registration will be considered permission for their student to take the Advanced Placement Test(s) and acknowledges that the student will provide their own transportation to the testing locations not at Buffalo Grove High School. The school does not provide transportation. Specific directions and parking information will be provided a week before the testing begins.

Refund Policy:

The AP Program charges for exams ordered but not used.  Therefore, a fee will be deducted from the refund of each test a student does not take.  Students must notify the Assessment Center if they are requesting a refund.  All refunds are processed in late June.
