Deadline to submit deposit: November 3, 2021
Deadline to submit the invoiced balance due in full: February 18, 2022
How do I place an AP® exam order?
Step 1: Activate Exam – This step has likely been done already in your AP® Class! 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 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 must also complete step 2 to initiate an exam order.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee Deposit – Submit a $40 per exam deposit by November 3, 2021. Click below to submit the deposit.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 3, 2021 to complete initiation of the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the November 3, 2021 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board without penalty fees.
Step 3: Submit balance due – On January 17, 2022, students who successfully initiated an exam order by completing step 1 and 2, will receive a personalized invoice for the applicable balance of fees due via email. The email will be sent by APTS to the STUDENT email address provided on the deposit form (which should be the same as their MyAP profile email). Balance due paid in full by February 18, 2022.
How do I submit the exam fees?
Deposits for exams may be done by clicking the link below and paying 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 deadline to ensure timely mail in deposit processing is October 28, 2021.
Invoices for the balance due will be emailed out to the student email address provided on the deposit form. Invoices will have the same payment options as above. Postmark deadline for timely submission of your balance due is February 14, 2022. Late payment of the balance due is possible only online.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 miss the November deadline to submit a deposit?
It’s crucial to meet this deadline. A penalty registration period will be available from November 16 through March 1, 2022. A penalty fee of $40 per exam will be applied.
I haven’t received my invoice for the exam fee balance that is due?
Please email email@example.com for assistance – include in the email your name, name of your school, and your request for your invoice to be reissued. (Note that the invoices are emailed to the parent email address provided on the deposit submission form.)
I missed the deadline to submit my balance due? What do I do?
Failure to submit the balance due by February 18, 2022 means that the exam order will be cancelled and the exam deactivated on MyAP and the deposit forfeited. It’s therefore crucial to meet this deadline.
I’m eligible for a fee reduction. What do I need to do?
Students eligible for a fee reduction may have significant exam fee reductions. Steps to complete your fee reduction:
- Apply for a fee reduction to Ms. Cayer at firstname.lastname@example.org and if approved, receive a fee reduction code to reduce the price to $53 per exam.
- Visit the APTS site (here) to submit your exam deposit of $40 and enter the fee reduction code. (All students submit the deposit form, regardless of eligibility status.)
- Activate your exam on MyAP
- Students who are eligible for a reduced fee will only submit a deposit of $3 for their first exam (thanks to the La Puente HS Scholarship!) and $40 per exam for any other exams. If confirmed as eligible, you will receive a modified invoice in January.
I no longer want to take the exam. What do I do?
To cancel an exam, students can email email@example.com and include in the email their name, name of their school, and the title of the exam to cancel. Cancellations requests received before 11:59pm on November 3, 2021 will be eligible for the full deposit fee refunded. Refund requests submitted after November 3 and before March 1, 2022 will be eligible for a partial refund – the deposit will be forfeited. No refunds and cancellations will be processed after March 1, 2022. No shows on exam day are not eligible for a refund. (Credit and debit card fees are non-refundable.)
