Advanced Placement

Dear Dougherty Valley Advanced Placement Students, Families and Caregivers,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are proud to support you in your desire to take one or more Advanced Placement exams this year. We want to provide you with the following information to ensure you can successfully register for your desired exams.

At this time, Advanced Placement exams are set to be administered in-person (not online) during the first two weeks of May. The schedule is set by CollegeBoard (not the school site). The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is partnering with Achievement Point Test Service (APTS) to facilitate registration and payment. As a result, AP EXAM ordering is now open! AP exam registration consists of two steps:


Students must join their AP® Class on the MyAP site (this is the SAME account students may have already set up for PSAT/SAT registration; do not create a new account). Students will be given a code from their teacher, which links them to their course.

  • PRO TIP: Use a personal email account, so CollegeBoard is accessible when/if you exit SRVUSD. Click on “Register for Exam.”
  • The deadline to activate is September 27, 2021.
  • See FAQs for more information and details - COMING SOON
  • For assistance, by email: or phone (888)-225-5427


Click on Submit AP® Exam Payment and complete the payment form to submit fees. All students need to complete the online payment form, regardless of the method of payment. The deadline to pay is September 27th, 2021.

NOTE: CollegeBoard deadlines may differ from those listed here. SRVUSD students need to follow the deadlines on this document.


If registering before or on 9/27/21, the cost is $125 per exam ($172 for AP Capstone).

If registering after 9/27/21, a $45 late registration fee will be added to the exam(s) cost. Fee Reduction Applications are available for students needing financial assistance. Please submit the form to DVHS Assistant Principal Lauren Falkner.


  • Exams canceled before November 15, 2021, will receive a full refund. 
  • Exams canceled between November 16, 2021, and March 30, 2022, will receive a refund MINUS the $40 CollegeBoard cancellation penalty and APTS fees.

For SRVUSD students who are self-studying (“Independent Study”) or taking non-SRVUSD Advanced Placement courses

The registration window opens on November 1, 2021. You will receive more information in October. 

  • For the AP Computer Science Principles Exam, SRVUSD can provide an exam seat for the multiple-choice portion of the exam only. If you need help/support with “the create performance task” submission via AP Digital Portfolio, you must work with the organization (school) where you took the AP Computer Science Principles course for support.
  • SRVUSD cannot accommodate Independent Study exams for the following AP courses: 
  • AP 2-D Art & Design
  • AP 3-D Art & Design
  • AP Drawing
  • AP Research
  • AP Seminar

For more information, please visit the DVHS Advanced Placement webpage. Thank you, and we wish you a successful year!
