How do I place an AP® exam order?

Step 2: Activate ExamStudents 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. October 1 is the deadline to activate your exam.

⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 1, 2019 to activate the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 1, 2019 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.

* Students enrolled in the SPRING semester AP Psychology and AP US Government classes MAY put a deposit down at this time but it is not required. The students in that course which commences in January, and ONLY those students, will be able to submit the $98 exam fee AND activate the exam on MyAP without penalty fees between the start of the course and March 1.

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

Starting in August 2019, College Board has launched a new system that all students join if enrolled in an AP® Course. 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

– 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.

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 apstudents@info.collegeboard.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. Please see your AP® teacher ASAP to complete the step by October 1.

What if I miss the October 1 deadline to submit a deposit?*

No exam order can be initiated after October 1, 2019. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the October 1 deadline.
