How do I order AP® exams?
Step 1: Submit Exam Fees – To commit take an AP® exam in the May 2020 AP® Exam administration, submit exam fees between September 7 and October 19, 2020 via the link on this page.
Step 2: Activate Exam – Students must JOIN their AP® Exam Groups on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org to activate the exam order and complete the process. To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile. (See FAQs for more details.) Students who have submitted a successful exam fee payment will receive the Exam Only Join Codes via email and must Join the Exam Only Group no later than October 19, 2020 to complete their order.
⇒ BOTH steps above must be completed for an exam order to be considered complete.
Failure to complete the Join Step on MyAP will mean that the school coordinator cannot submit your exam order. A student who fails to complete the exam activation step on the College Board MyAP Site by October 19 will automatically have their partial order cancelled and any fees submitted refunded and will have to re-initiate the process with a penalty fee.
My exam is not listed under the list of Exam Only Join Codes in the Join Code email.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Join Codes will not be issued by phone. Please make sure to email from the same email address listed on your exam payment form.
What if I can’t log into my College Board profile or can’t remember if I have one?
Students create College Board profiles to access their AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores or to register for a SAT® or SAT® 2 Exam. You may already have an account if you have taken any of these exams in the past.
Don’t create a second account!
Each student should have only ONE College Board account during their high school careers which houses AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores and information. For log in help visit: https://pages.collegeboard.org/account-help or https://myap.collegeboard.org
Students may also call College Board AP® Services for Students: 1-866-630-9305.
Which information should I provide on my College Board MyAP Registration Profile?
Students should use their legal name (to match school records), so that the name will also match the student’s School ID or driver’s license at exam check in. College Board also sends scores electronically to colleges/universities. A discrepancy in name can result in score reporting issues and delays. To update a name or correct a name, contact College Board at 1-866-630-9305.
Students should use an email address that they will have access to BEYOND high school and where they can receive alerts from College Board or APTS.
College Board does not collect Social Security numbers, so your account is identified as unique based on your email address and name. Be consistent in how you enter information!
