Deadline to initiate exam registration: October 30, 2020
Deadline to submit the invoiced balance due in full: January 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 initiate an exam order.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee Deposit – Submit a $53 per exam deposit by October 30, 2020. Click below to submit the deposit.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 30, 2020 to complete initiation of the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 30, 2020 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board without penalty fees.
Step 3: Submit balance due – On November 30, 2020, students who successfully initiated an exam order by completing step 1 and 2, will receive a personalized invoice for the applicable balance of fees due via email. The email will be sent by APTS to the PARENT email address provided on the deposit form. Balance due paid in full by January 29, 2020.
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 26, 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 January 26, 2021. Late payment of the balance due is possible only online.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 30 deadline to submit a deposit?
Contact your AP Coordinator immediately! Students enrolled in courses that commence in the Fall and miss the October 30 registration deadline will be able to add an order for a penalty of $40 per exam through March 10, 2021. No new exam orders can be initiated after March 10, 2021.
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 January 29 deadline to submit my balance due? What do I do?
Failure to submit the balance due by January 29, 2021 means that the exam order will be cancelled and the exam deactivated on MyAP. Reactivation will incur a $40 penalty fee. No exam order changes can be made after March 10, 2021.
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 to Ms. Clawson at Jclawson@newtonnj.org and if approved, receive a fee reduction code
- Visit the APTS site (here) to submit your exam deposit of $53 and enter the fee reduction code. (All students submit a $53 deposit, regardless of eligibility status.)
- Activate your exam on MyAP
- Students who are eligible for a reduced fee will only submit $53 per exam and if confirmed as eligible, will not receive an invoice from APTS for any additional fees due.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – include the student’s name, Newton HS name, and the name of the exam the students wishes to cancel. Refund requests submitted before March 10, 2021 will be eligible for a full refund of the exam fee. Late registration penalty fees and credit card processing fees are not eligible for a refund.
