How do I order an AP Exam?

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 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 7 is the deadline to activate your exam.

Step 2: Submit Exam Fees – Students with an active exam order will receive a personalized digital  on October 8 for their exam fee balance due. The invoice will be emailed to the email address linked to your College Board profile. Payment can be submitted online or via mail in – details are on the digital invoice.

⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 7, 2019 to complete the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the November 7, 2019 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order to College Board for your and the exam will be deactivated.

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

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 and that is checked frequently so you can receive alerts regarding your exams

– 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 MHS Attendance Office AND help identify errors in names.
