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.

ALL Students should complete the Join Step to be able to access the free online resources for their AP® Subject made available on MyAP. (If no exam fees are submitted by October 30, the exam is deactivated.)

Once the student has joined the online AP® Class group, they will be prompted to complete the MyAP Registration Profile pages. Students taking the exam click on “Register for the exam” to complete the exam activation.

STEP 2: Submit exam fees – Click on “Submit fees for AP Exams” below and submit your fees.

Payment for exams may be done via credit card or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. There will be an online payment fee of 3% for payments submitted by credit or debit card. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the online registration form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the parent email address you provide on the registration form.

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

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. No more pre-administration!

What does a successful exam activation look like?

When you log into MyAP, you will see the following:

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?

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 November 1, 2019.

What if I miss the November 1 deadline to submit fees?

A penalty fee of $40 per exam will be applied to exam registrations submitted between November 2, 2019 and March 1, 2020.

How do I submit the exam fees?

Payment for exams may be done via credit card or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. There will be an online payment fee of 3% 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, 2019.

Can I cancel my exam?

Refunds/Cancellation: Students who submit a cancellation request by 11:59pm PST on April 1, 2020 will receive a partial refund of exam fees submitted.  $40 per exam will be forfeited to cover the cost of the unused exam fee. To cancel email cancel@aptsusa.com and include the student name, name of the school and the title of the exam to cancel. No refunds will be issued for exams cancelled after April 1, 2020  or for no shows on exam day.

How do I receive my scores?

Is there financial aid available for the 2020 AP® exams?

Fee reductions are available to students who qualify based on College Board® and Federal Free-Reduced Lunch Program guidelines. To verify whether or not you are eligible for fee reduction, please contact Ms. Browne at Mt Everest or Ms. Conway at iHigh. If you are eligible, you will receive special instructions to register via the online system using a fee reduction code. This code will reduce your price appropriately. The deadline to obtain a fee reduction code is October 29, 2019 by 3 PM. You must then register for your AP® exam(s) by submitting payment to APTS AND activating the exam on MyAP by the deadline.

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.

*YOU MUST BE DILIGENT IN MEETING ALL DEADLINES AND ADHERING TO ALL COLLEGE BOARD POLICIES REGARDING TESTING, OR YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE YOUR EXAMS!
