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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 29 for the Fall registration period, and between January 10 – February 25 for the Spring registration period.
Active exams will show a message like this:
Why can’t I receive the Join Code for my Spring classes/exams early? Why do I need to wait until January?
College Board research shows that early commitment to the exam does mean greater levels of student success. HOWEVER, that means early commitment ‘within the class.’ For courses that do not commence until January or even February, College Board has a special Spring deadline, with no penalty fees, specifically for students enrolled in these courses. This allows students a chance to see the course syllabus, speak with the teacher, and preview the content.
What if I miss the Fall October 29 deadline to submit fees?
A penalty fee of $40 per exam will automatically be applied to any payments linked to courses that are in the Fall and that are submitted between October 30 and November 5 and again between November 16 and March 5. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the October deadline.
What if I missed the Spring February 25 deadline to submit my exam fees? What do I do?
A penalty fee of $40 per exam will automatically be applied to any payments submitted between February 26 and March 5. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the February deadline.
Any exam corresponding to a Spring class that is activate on MyAP as of March 5, 2022 and does not have the corresponding fees submitted will automatically not be ordered.
How do I submit the exam fees?
Payment for exams may be done via credit card or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. There will be an online payment fee of 3.1% for payments submitted by credit or debit card. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the online deposit form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadlines apply and are detailed in your mail in instruction email.

Is there financial aid available for the 2022 AP® exams?

What if I get sick and can’t make the exam?
There are provisions for students who become sick or injured during or right before testing. In case of such an emergency, please contact your AP® Coordinator at your school IMMEDIATELY. A doctor’s note will be required. IMMEDIATE contact – if ill on the day of the scheduled exam – is crucial due to the deadlines involved in ordering make up materials.
