College Board: DO NOT mandate fall AP Exam requirements and deadlines.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


The College Board is implementing changes to the Advanced Placement Exam process for the 2019-2020 exams. While some of the changes are welcome, e.g. the College Board providing educational resources and pre-identified materials, other changes appear to provide no benefit to the AP community. The later changes are clearly being implemented to increase the College Board revenues by setting unrealistic deadlines, increasing late order and cancellation fees and coercively acquiring additional personally identifiable student data to sell, even from students not taking AP exams. These changes are egregious and unacceptable; thus, the undersigned petition and demand that the College Board:

  1. NOT set the deadline for ordering exams in November. The deadline should remain in March, as is currently practiced.
  2. NOT increase the late order fees to $40 and cancellation fees to $40, both beginning in November. The late order and cancellation fees should remain as is.
  3. NOT force students to provide their personal data, regardless if they are taking the AP exam or not, on the College Board’s website. Students should continue to be able to choose whether or not and how they provide personal information when registering for AP exams.

Please provide the undersigned a public official response in writing on the College Board’s website by March 31, 2019.

If the College Board refuses to make all three changes outlined in this petition, then the undersigned will call on all appropriate local, state and federal agencies to withhold any and all future funding for the College Board.

If you have a change.org account and a 'reasons for signing' text box below, please include your school name, state, AP affiliation (student, parent, teacher, administrator, etc.) and any additional comments.
