Registration Deadline: November 6, 2022 (midnight PST)
How do I place an AP® exam order?
STEP 1: Activate your exam – Log into the College Board MyAP site at http://myap.collegeboard.org using your College Board profile and apply the ‘Join Code’ (access code) you receive from your teacher for each of your subjects.
College Board profiles are the same accounts used to order SAT® exams, or to collect prior year PSAT/NMSQT® or AP® Exam scores. Do not create a new account if you already have one (see below for tips.)
If you have never created a College Board account, create one by clicking on ‘Create Account’ on http://myap.collegeboard.org
Students will obtain a Join Code (access code) from their AP® Course teachers. Join Codes for the MyAP Site are subject, teacher and class period specific.
Once the student has joined the online AP Class group, they will be prompted to complete the MyAP Registration Profile pages.
ALL Students should join the MyAP AP Class groups to access free course resources. Students who are choosing to take the optional exams will also need to activate the exam by clicking for each exam that the plan to take the yellow ‘Register for exam’ button on the MyAP Dashboard. Deadline to activate the exam is November 6, 2022.
An active exam will display this message:
STEP 2: Submit exam fees – To complete registration, the exam fees must be submitted by clicking the link below and completing the online payment form by November 6, 2022.
Fees may be submitted 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 payment form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the parent email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadline to ensure timely mail in fee processing is November 1.
A penalty fee will be charged after November 6 and during late registration between December 1, 2022 and March 5, 2023 of $40 per exam.
No exam fees will be processed after March 5, 2023. Exams that are active on MyAP without a corresponding fee submission will be deactivated and not ordered.
Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the applicable deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board without penalty.
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 and that is checked frequently,
– Make sure to enter your COMPLETE legal name to prevent issues with sending score reports to colleges and universities. Double check that it’s YOUR name on the account – it may sound silly, but out of habit a parent may have entered their own name, or even autofill may have entered a name for you that is not correct and will delay your score reporting to Colleges and Universities.
– Enter your School ID in to ensure accurate attendance reporting to your school on exam day
– Select your college or university to receive your scores: Navigate within MyAP to ‘Send Scores’ and enter a college/university to receive your scores in July (mostly applicable to seniors.) If a request is submitted by June 15 of the year in which the exam was administered, the score report is sent with no fee by The College Board. Send requests after June 15 of the same year as the exam will automatically incur a College Board Score Send Fee.
I can’t access my College Board Profile account or am not sure I have one. What do I do?
