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. When a student enrolls in the class on MyAP, they are automatically enrolled in the exam and the exam is activated. October 31 is the deadline to activate your exam. Join Codes are obtained from your AP® teacher.
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee – Submit your exam fees by October 31, 2020. Click below to submit the fees.
Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 31, 2020 to have a successful exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the October 31, 2020 deadline means the AP® Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order without you being held responsible for penalty fees.
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.
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 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 31.
