How do I place an AP® exam order?
Step 1: Activate Exam – Students must JOIN their AP® Class accounts on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org and indicate your exam decision. To access the site, use a College Board Profile.
The College Board profile is the same account that you use to order SAT® Exams, or to collect prior year AP® or PSAT® exam results. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one at http://myap.collegeboard.org
Students will be provided in their AP® Class at school a Join Code (or access code.) Once logged into MyAP, you will ‘Join’ your class with that access code. ALL Students should complete this join step so that you can have access to the College Board resources i n the system.
Join Codes are subject, teacher and period specific.
Students who are taking the optional exam, also will need to set their Exam Decision Indicator to YES by October 25, 2019* and complete the online MyAP Registration profile.
*Students enrolled in courses that COMMENCE in the SPRING Semester will not be able to activate the exam until the course commences in the Spring.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee Deposit – To take an AP® exam in the May 2020 AP® Exam administration, a $40 per exam deposit is due by October 25, 2019* Click below to submit the deposit.
? Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 25, 2019* to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 25, 2019 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.
*Students enrolled in courses that COMMENCE in the SPRING Semester, may submit a deposit in the Fall but it is not required. These students may submit the $94 exam fee without penalty from January 18 through February 14, 2020. ONLY students enrolled in AP® Psychology, AP® Macroeconomics and AP® US Government that start in the spring will be able to activate their exams during this time without penalty fees.
Step 3: Submit Balance Due – On or around November 15, 2019, students who successfully completed steps 1 and 2 above will receive a personalized invoice for the applicable balance of fees due via email.
The email will be sent to the PARENT Email address provided on the deposit form.
The applicable balance must be paid in full by February 14, 2020.
? Any student with an outstanding balance due on February 15, 2020 will have their exam deactivated and forfeit their deposit. Re-activation will not be possible.
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 your school AND help identify errors in names.
– Submit ‘Send Scores’ by June 15 – you are eligible for a free score report sent to the college/university of your choice. To request the report, log into MyAP and navigate to MyAP Profile and then ‘Send Scores.’ Submissions before June 15 will be free.
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 email@example.com 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 25, 2019.*
*Students enrolled in courses that COMMENCE in the SPRING Semester will not be able to activate the exam until the course commences in the Spring. These students will be able to JOIN in the Second Semester/Spring – deadline February 14, 2020.
What if I miss the October 25 deadline to submit a deposit?
A late registration period will be open from January 18 through February 14, 2020. Students who did not activate and submit an exam deposit by the October deadline will be able to initiate an exam order at that time for a penalty fee of $40 per exam. No exam orders will be accepted or activated after February 14, 2020.
I haven’t received my invoice for the exam fee balance that is due?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 in late November to the PARENT email address provided on the deposit submission form.)
I missed the February 14 deadline to submit my balance due? What do I do?
It is crucial to meet the February 14 deadline. Failure to submit the balance due by February 14, 2020 means that the exam order will be de-activated, the deposit forfeited, and the student will not be able to sit for the exam. Please be timely with your balance payment.
