Exam Registration Deadline: November 1, 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. Do NOT create a second account! (College Board Profiles are the same account used to order SAT or previous year AP exams, or to collect PSAT or SAT scores.)
Join codes will be issued by your teachers and are subject, teacher and class period specific.
Fall Deadline to activate your exam is November 1, 2021*.
* Students enrolled in the SPRING AP US Government courses will not be able to join that course on MyAP until it commences in the Spring/Second semester.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee – Submit exam fees between September 29 and November 1, 2021*. Click below to submit the fees.
Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 1, 2021* to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the November 1, 2021 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order without penalties fees to College Board.
* Students enrolled in courses that COMMENCE in the Spring can submit exam orders without penalty between January 3 and February 25, 2022.
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 in the field provided on MyAP. This will assist your school in accurate exam day attendance reporting
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.
What if I am taking a class that is in the Spring Semester (AP US Gov)?
Students enrolled in the Spring semester courses 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 3 to February 25, 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 1 deadline to submit fees?
It is crucial to meet the November 1 fee payment deadline.
Students who miss the November 1 deadline and want to add an exam, will be able to do so between November 16 and March 4, 2022 for a penalty fee of $40 per exam.*
EXCEPTION is for students enrolled in courses that commence in the Spring/2nd Semester (AP US Government and AP Macroeconomics.) Only students enrolled in those courses will have an opportunity to initiate new orders for those subjects between January 3 and February 25, 2022.
NO new orders and no changes to orders will be possible after March 4, 2022.
I’ve decided that I do not want to take the exam in May. What do I do?
