6. To complete an AP® Exam order successfully, students MUST submit an exam fee payment AND complete the Join step on MyAP for EACH exam.  Without completion of BOTH steps, the AP® Exam order cannot be submitted to College Board. Failure to Join the AP® group in MyAP by the applicable deadline will result in the exam order that was initiated to be cancelled and fees refunded. Conversely, Exams that are activated on MyAP but do not have the corresponding exam fees submitted by the applicable deadline, will be de-activated and nor ordered. See the FAQ section for more information about the MyAP Join Code process.

8. Cancellations: Students who order and pay for an exam but decide to cancel before the applicable payment window closes for their exam will receive a full refund. Students who order and pay for an exam but decide to cancel AFTER the applicable payment window has closed and before midnight on April 30, 2020, will receive a partial refund of $60 regardless of when the exam order was submitted. (The student will forfeit a $40 exam unused exam fee as well as any late registration fee.) No exchange or re-selling of tests. To cancel your exam, send an email to and include your name, name of your school (including city and state), and name of the exam you would like to cancel. Exams cancelled from May 1 onwards as well as no shows on exam day are not eligible for any refund and forfeit their fees.

Students who submitted an exam registration as a Fee Reduction student will not be eligible for any refund since the cost of the unused exam fee exceeds the payment.

9. Testing with accommodations: Students who are approved by College Board for testing with accommodations will receive  special exam day instructions. To submit an application for approval, please contact the school site AP Coordinator. Deadline to submit a new application to College Board is January 17, 2020.
