How do I place an AP® exam order?
STEP 1: Activate your exam on The College Board MyAP website – Students must JOIN their AP® Exam Groups on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org to activate the exam order and complete the process. To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile.
Your College Board Profile is the same profile used to order SAT® exams or to collect PSAT/NMSQT® or AP® Exam scores from previous years. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one. (See the tips below regarding what information is crucial on the account.)
To Join the Exam Group and thereby activate the exam, you will receive from each AP subject teacher a subject and teacher specific Join Code (or access code) to apply to your MyAP profile.
For students registering for exams that are not linked to an official AP Course at PHS, you will receive via email from APTS an exam only join code when registration payment has been submitted.
Deadline to activate your exam: October 23, 2020.
STEP 2: Submit Exam Fees – Submit exam fees for your May 2021 AP® Exams between September 29 and October 23, 2020 via the link below.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 23, 2020 to activate the exam order fully. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 23, 2020 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.
Why do I need to activate an exam on The College Board MyAP System?
The College Board 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. No more preadministration sessions!
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 and that is frequently checked to enable receipt of alerts from APTS and the College Board.
– 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.
– Send Scores: on your MyAP Profile page you will be able to select the college/university to receive your scores in the summer – a free score report will be sent if you indicate the college/university by June 15.
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 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 23.
For students registering for exams that are not linked to an official AP Course at PHS, you will receive your Join Code via email once payment for the exam has successfully processed.
What if I miss the October 23 deadline to activate my exam or submit fees?
No exam order can be initiated after October 23, 2020. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the October 23 deadline.
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% 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 payment form. Postmark deadline to ensure timely mail in deposit processing is October 20, 2020.
Can I cancel my exam?
No. There are no cancellations or refunds.
Can I change when I take the exam?
Exam times are set by The College Board. Note that AP® Exams must be taken only at the times established by The College Board. Exams administered at Pascack Hills HS will be at the dates and times set by The College Board. Please see the calendar linked below.
Is there financial aid available for the 2021 AP® exams?
Fee reductions sponsored by the College Board are available to families who qualify. Please contact your school AP® Coordinator (Ms. Cristina Schneider) if you believe you qualify. Please contact her ASAP.
