    **For students who qualify for free/reduced lunch, exams are FREE


    If you have not applied for free/reduced lunch status this year and think you may qualify, please do so at  You do not automatically qualify just because all FDHS students receive free lunch; you must demonstrate financial need through this application.



    Payments can be made by credit card or check.  Payments will be made directly to Total Registration—no payments will be made to or collected by Frederick Douglass High School.  A $25 late fine per exam will be charged for students registering after October 31st.  Starting November 14th, students will be charged a $65 late fine per exam.  Exams may be cancelled until November 12th, and a full refund will be given. 

     Last year, exams were taken at home by students, as we found ourselves in the middle of this global pandemic.  If 2021 exams are taken in-person, they will be proctored off campus.  In this case, students will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the test site.  Students will not be admitted once the test administration process has started.
