How do I place an AP® exam order?
Step 1: Join your class on MyAP and Activate Exam – Students who have not yet done so in their AP Class with their teacher, should log into http://myap.collegeboard.org with their College Board Profile and join the AP Class online with their teacher issued Join Code.
College Board Profiles are the accounts used to order SAT exams, prior year AP exams, or to collect SAT, PSAT/NMSQT or AP exam scores. Students should have only ONE profile/account and always make sure it has up to date/current contact information active on it.
Join Codes are access codes to link the student to their specific AP Class and class period. Join Codes are issued by your AP Course teachers.
To Join an AP Class on MyAP, log into MyAP at http://myap.collegeboard.org and click on “Join Class/Exam.” Enter the Join Code.
Once joined to the class and able to access the free online resources, students who want to take the exam will activate the exam by clicking ‘Register for Exam.’ Deadline to activate the exam is November 5, 2020.*
Step 2: Submit Exam Fees– Students who would like to take the optional AP Exams must submit the exam fees by November 5, 2020.* To submit fees, click the link below.
