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. You will then ‘Join’ your classes by entering a Join Code (Access Code) that will link you to your specific teacher and subject. November 6 is the deadline to activate your exam if you have not already done so. Many students have completed this step in class to that they are able to access the free course resources.
Step 2: Submit Exam Deposit – Students choosing to take the exams corresponding to their AP classes must submit a $15 per STUDENT deposit by November 6, 2020. Click below to submit the deposit.
Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 6, 2020 to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the November 6, 2020 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.
Step 3: Submit balance due – Students who completed steps 1 and 2 above by November 6, 2020, will receive via email on November 30, 2020 a digital invoice for the balance of their exam fees due (if applicable.) Exam fees are $45 per exam ($15 per exam for students eligible for the reduced priced.) The digital invoice is emailed to the PARENT email address on the deposit payment form. The balance is due paid in full by March 6, 2021.
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 AHS 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 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. The activation step has likely happened in class. If you were absent, please see your AP® teacher ASAP to complete the step.
How do I know if my exam is activated on MyAP?
If you successfully joined the class with the teacher issued join code, you will see when you log into MyAP the class listed on your dashboard and to the right, the exam name, exam date, and the host school listed.
What if I miss the November 6 deadline to submit a deposit?
A penalty submission period is available from November 14, 2020 through March 6, 2021 to initiate a late order. A $40 per exam penalty fee will be added to the cost of the exam during the late registration period. This will increase the per exam price to $85 ($55 for students eligible for a reduction.) If initiating an order during the late registration period, the FULL exam fee and late fee will be collected automatically at that time.
I haven’t received my invoice for the exam fee balance that is due?
Please email email@example.com for assistance – include in the email your name, name of your school, and your request for your invoice to be reissued. (Note that the invoices are emailed to the parent email address provided on the deposit submission form.)
I missed the March 6 deadline to submit my balance due? What do I do?
Failure to submit the balance due by March 6, 2021 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?
Deposit and 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 30, 2020.
Invoices for the balance due will be emailed out to the parent email address provided on the deposit form. Invoices will have the same payment options as above. Postmark deadline for timely submission of your balance due is March 1, 2021. Late payment of the balance due is possible only online.
I’m eligible for a fee reduction. What do I need to do?
Students eligible for a fee reduction will receive a modified invoice in November. The exam fee for those eligible for a reduction will be $15 per exam.
If you received an invoice for the standard exam fee and believe that is incorrect, please contact your school site AP Coordinator, Mr. Terrance Christianson, at firstname.lastname@example.org for a review of your file. If it is determined that you are eligible for the $15 per exam price, APTS will email you a new invoice.
I no longer need to or want to take the exam. What do I do to cancel? Can I get a refund?
Students who submitted a deposit and/or exam fees and decide to withdraw and cancel an exam are eligible for a refund of the base exam fees minus a $2.50 processing charge if the refund request is submitted before 11:59pm PST on March 6, 2021. To request a cancellation and refund, email the APTS Cancellation Desk at email@example.com and include the student name, name of the school, and the title of the exam to cancel. Note that late order fees and credit card fees are Non-Refundable.
