How do I place an AP® exam order?
STEP 1: Activate your exam – Log into the College Board MyAP site at http://myap.collegeboard.org using your College Board profile and apply the ‘Join Code’ (access code) you receive from your teacher for each of your subjects.
⇒ For courses that commence in the Fall (Aug/Sept), activate the exam by completing the Join Code step and by then clicking on “Register for Exam.” Activation deadline is November 6, 2020.
⇒ For courses that commence in the Spring/Second semester, activate the exam starting in JANUARY by completing the Join Code step and by then clicking on “Register for Exam.” Activation deadline is March 5, 2021.
STEP 2: Submit exam fees – Click on “Submit fees for AP® Exams” below and submit your fees.
⇒ For yearlong and Fall courses, exam fees are due by November 6, 2020. No late payment is available.
⇒ For Spring courses, exam fees are due by March 5, 2021. No late payment is available.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by the applicable deadlines to activate the exam order and to enable the AP Coordinator for your school to submit an exam order to The 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.
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 email@example.com 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 November 6, 2020 for the Fall registration period, and between January 11 – March 5, 2021 for the Spring registration period.
Active exams will show a message like this:
Why can’t I receive the Join Code for my Spring classes/exams early? Why do I need to wait until January?
College Board research shows that early commitment to the exam does mean greater levels of student success. HOWEVER, that means early commitment ‘within the class.’ For courses that do not commence until January or even February, College Board has a special Spring deadline, with no penalty fees, specifically for students enrolled in these courses. This allows students a chance to see the course syllabus, speak with the teacher, and preview the content.
What if I miss the Fall November 6 deadline to submit fees?
No late payment or registration is available. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the November 6 deadline.
Any exam that is activated on MyAP on November 6, 2020 and does not have the corresponding fees submitted will automatically be cancelled.
What if I missed the Spring March 5 deadline to submit my exam fees? What do I do?
It is crucial to meet the March 5 deadline. Due to the Spring timeline, there is no late payment submission and exam ordering period in the Spring.
Any exam that is activated on MyAP on March 5, 2021 and does not have the corresponding fees submitted will automatically be cancelled.
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 deposit form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadline for the Fall registration period to ensure timely mail in deposit processing is October 31, 2020.

What if I get sick and can’t make the exam?

A doctor’s note will be required. IMMEDIATE contact – if ill on the day of the scheduled exam – is crucial due to the deadlines involved in ordering make up materials.
