How do I place an AP® exam order?
Step 1: Submit Exam Fee Deposit – Submit a $20 per exam deposit between September 21 and October 23, 2020. Click below to submit the deposit.
Step 2: Activate Exam – Students must all join the AP class on the College Board MyAP site at https://myap.collegeboard.org To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile. You will then ‘Join’ your classes by entering a Join Code (Access Code) that will link you to your specific teacher and subject. Students who want to take the optional AP exam, must also click on ‘Register for Exam’ to activate the exam. October 23 is the deadline to activate your exam.
Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 23, 2020 to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 23, 2020 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.
Step 3: Submit balance due -On or around November 20, 2020, students who successfully initiated an exam order by completing steps 1 and 2, will receive a personalized invoice for the applicable balance of fees due via email. The invoice will be emailed by APTS to the PARENT email address on the deposit form. Balance due paid in full by February 26, 2021.
Exams with a balance remaining as of February 27, 2021 will be cancelled.
Tips for setting up your College Board Profile on MyAP:
– Use an email address that you will have access to throughout high school AND university
– Make sure to enter your COMPLETE legal name to prevent issues with sending score reports to colleges and universities
– Enter your school student ID number to assist your school in reporting your attendance to the exam to the Attendance Office AND help identify errors in names.
I can’t access my College Board Profile account or am not sure I have one. What do I do?
The College Board Profile is the same account used to access your past years’ AP® scores, PSAT® scores, and SAT® scores. Do not create a new one! Each student should have only ONE unique account. If you are unable to access the account, try using the ‘Forget Password?’ link on http://myap.collegeboard.org OR email email@example.com OR call 888-225-5427 for assistance.
Where do I get the Join Code to complete the join step on the MyAP site?
Join Codes are subject, teacher, and period specific. Please see your AP® teacher ASAP to complete the step by October 23.
