Deadline to submit exam registration: November 5, 2021
How do I place an AP® exam order?
Step 1: Activate Exam – Students must activate their exams on The College Board MyAP site by JOINing their AP® Class on the 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.
Join Codes will be provided by your EHS AP® Coordinator and AP® Course teachers.
ALL Students should join their AP class on MyAP to access the free online resources provided by the College Board.
Students who choose to take the AP Exams, should then also complete Step 2 below.
*Students enrolled in the AP Macroeconomics course that COMMENCES in the Spring/Second semester will not be able to complete the exam activation step until after the course commences. Students in this course ONLY, will be able to join the class and activate the exam as well as submit exam fees in full between January 31 and March 4 with no penalty.
Step 3: Submit exam fees – Submit exam fees by clicking the link below. Fees are due by November 5, 2021 to avoid penalty fees.* Late fees will apply through November 9.
Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 9 to complete initiation of the exam order.* Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the November 9 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order with College Board without additional penalty fees.
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 EHS 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 add my class on the MyAP site?
Join Codes are subject, teacher, and period specific. Teachers will distribute these codes in class. If you were absent, please see your AP® teacher ASAP to join your class.”
What if I am taking a class that is in the Spring Semester (AP Macroeconomics)?
Students enrolled in courses that COMMENCE in the second/Spring semester may submit their exam deposit in the fall, but are not required to do so. A special registration period ONLY for those students will be possible without penalty fees from January 31 to March 4, 2022. Students will not be able to receive the Join Codes from the Spring course teachers until the Spring/2nd Semester term begins.
What if I miss the November deadline to submit fees?
A penalty submission period is available November 6 through November 9 for students in courses that commence in the First/Fall semester. A $10 per exam penalty fee will be added to the deposit fee between November 6 and November 9.
Students enrolled in courses that commence in the Fall and miss the November 9 late registration deadline, can also register late when Spring registration opens on January 31, 2022 for a penalty of $40 per exam. The $40 penalty will be applicable from January 31, 2022 to March 4, 2022 to any exams ordered that correspond to a Fall course start date. No new exam orders can be initiated after March 4, 2022.
