How do I place an AP® exam order?

Step 1: Submit Exam Fee DepositSubmit a $40 per exam deposit by October 16, 2019. Click below to submit the deposit.

Step 2: Activate ExamStudents 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. October 16 is the deadline to activate your exam.

⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 16, 2019 to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 16, 2019 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.

Step 3:  Submit balance due – In December, students who successfully initiated an exam order by completing step 1 and 2, will receive a personalized invoice for the balance of fees due via email. Balance due paid in full by February 10, 2020.

Why do I need to activate an exam on The College Board MyAP System?

Starting in August 2019, College Board has launched a new system that all students join if enrolled in an AP® Course. The MyAP system provides students a variety of excellent, College Board vetted FREE resources to apply to their AP Course and AP® exam preparation. In addition, students will now JOIN the AP ®Group and complete the Registration Profile section on the MyAP website to enable custom printing of AP® exam barcode labels for each student for exam day.

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 Madison High School 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 apstudents@info.collegeboard.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 16

What if I miss the October 16 deadline to submit a deposit?

No exam order can be initiated after October 16, 2019. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the October 16 deadline.

I haven’t received my invoice for the exam fee balance that is due?

I missed the February 10 deadline to submit my balance due? What do I do?

A $40 penalty fee will be added to the cost of each exam submitted between February 11 and March 1. Failure to submit the balance due by March 1, 2020 means that the exam order will be cancelled, the deposit forfeited, and the student will not be able to sit for the exam. Please be timely with your balance payment.

How do I submit the exam fees?

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.
