Deadline to submit exam registration: October 29, 2021
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.
Join Codes will be provided by your AP® Course teachers.
ALL Students should join their AP class on MyAP to access the free online resources provided by the College Board.
Students who choose to take the AP Exams must also complete step 2 to complete an exam order.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee – Submit exam fee(s) by October 29, 2021. Click below to submit the fees.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 29, 2021 to complete an exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 29, 2021 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order to College Board without penalty fees.
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 3.1% 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 email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadline to ensure timely mail in fee processing is October 26, 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 NHS 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 email@example.com OR call 888-225-5427 for assistance.
Where do I get the Join Code to add my class on the MyAP site?
Join Codes are subject, teacher, and period specific. Teachers will distribute these codes in class. If you were absent, please see your AP® teacher ASAP to join your class.
What if I miss the October 29 deadline to submit a deposit?
Contact your AP Coordinator immediately! Students enrolled in courses that commence in the Fall and miss the October 29 registration deadline will be able to add an order for a penalty of $40 per exam through March 4, 2022. No new exam orders can be initiated after March 4, 2022.
I’m eligible for a fee reduction. What do I need to do?
Students eligible for a fee reduction may have significant exam fee reductions. Steps to complete your fee reduction:
- Apply for a fee reduction by contacting Ms. Kucz at firstname.lastname@example.org and if approved, receive a fee reduction code

I dropped my AP® Course and no longer need to or want to take the exam. What do I do?
Students who order and pay for an exam but decide to cancel must submit a written request to email@example.com – include the student’s name, Newton HS name, and the name of the exam the students wishes to cancel. Refund requests submitted before March 4, 2022 will be eligible for a partial refund of exam fees (A $40 cancellation penalty fee will be retained out of the exam fee (a policy set by College Board).
