How do I order an exam?
Step 1: Activate your Exam on MyAP – This step occurred in your Orcutt Academy HS AP class within the first weeks of school! Students activate their AP® Exams on the College Board MyAP system at http://myap.collegeboard.org in their AP courses. All students must have completed this step by September 28, 2020.
Step 2: Submit exam fees – Students who completed Step 1 will receive from APTS at their MyAP account email addresses on or around October 1, 2020 their customized exam fee invoices. Exam fees are due paid in full by November 6, 2020.
Exam fees can be submitted online using a credit or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. Payment instructions are available on the digital invoice. Postmark deadline for mail in payments is October 30, 2020. Download the PDF copy of the invoice OR click on “View and Pay Online Now” on the invoice main screen.
Late payment submission will be accepted between November 7, 2020 and March 8, 2021 with a penalty fee of $40 per exam.
⇒ Exams with outstanding balances due as of March 9, 2021 will be de-activated on MyAP and the student will not be able to take the exam in May. Exams cannot be re-activated.
I can’t access my College Board profile or I can’t remember if I have one. What do I do?
Don’t create a second account!
Each student should have only ONE College Board account during their high school careers which houses AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores and information. For log in help visit: https://pages.collegeboard.org/account-help or https://myap.collegeboard.org Students may also call College Board AP® Services for Students: 844-314-3632.
What information should I complete on my College Board profile?
The MyAP System will prompt you to complete the Registration screens if you are creating a new account. (If you have an account already, make sure to check through the MyAP Profile pages.)
Make sure that you enter your FULL legal name (should match your school records), your school student ID number, and also the name of your school. The email address on your profile should be your student email address (and if your school does not issue email addresses, it should be another STUDENT email address that is checked frequently and will be accessible after high school.) The email will be a crucial account identifier as well as where you will receive alerts from College Board and APTS.
On your College Board MyAP Profile you will also be prompted to complete the “Send Score” feature – on this screen you will submit the name of the college/university where you would like your free exam score report sent in July. Deadline to indicate the name of the school and qualify for a free report, is June 15, 2021.)
