McAlester AP Course Exam Expectations: Students who are enrolled in and complete an Advanced Placement course at McAlester High School are expected to take the College Board Advanced Placement Exam for that course. The College Board does not require the students enrolled in an AP course to take the corresponding AP Exam. Students are responsible for the cost of each AP Exam. The starting exam fee will be $90 in January and will increase to $95 in February, and finally $100 in March. Discounted exam fees exist for those students taking multiple AP exams. Scholarships are available to students who require financial assistance. Forms for these scholarships are in the senior counselor's office.
