How do I place an AP® exam order?
STEP 1: Activate your exam – (This step was likely completed in class but you should confirm that the exam is activated. See below.) 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.
College Board profiles are the same accounts used to order SAT® exams, or to collect prior year PSAT/NMSQT® or AP® Exam scores. Do not create a new account if you already have one (see below for tips.)
If you have never created a College Board account, create one by clicking on ‘Create Account’ on http://myap.collegeboard.org
Students will obtain a Join Code (access code) from their AP® Course teachers. Join Codes for the MyAP Site are subject, teacher and class period specific.
Students who are taking an AP exam as an Independent Study/Exam Only must contact Dr. Herzog at email@example.com for an Exam Only join code and activate for the exam prior to October 30, 2023.
Activate the exam on MyAP by joining the online class by clicking “Add Class/Exam” and entering the Join Code.
STEP 2: Submit exam fees – Click on “Submit AP Exam Payment” below and complete the online payment form to submit your fees.
ALL students should complete the payment form, even if they have been approved for a fee waiver due to family income or hardship.
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 3.1% 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 parent email address you provide on the payment form.
Deadline to postmark a mail in payment is October 25, 2023 to ensure timely processing.
⇒ Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by October 30, 2023 to submit the exam order. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by October 30, 2023 means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order to College Board and the exam will not be ordered.
What if I can’t log into my College Board profile or can’t remember if I have one?
Students create College Board profiles to access their AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores or to register for an SAT® or SAT® 2 Exam. You may already have an account if you have taken these exams in the past.
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: 1-888-225-5427.
Which email address and name should I use on my College Board profile?
Students should use their legal name (to match school records), so that the name will also match the student’s School ID or driver’s license at exam check in. College Board also sends scores electronically to colleges/universities. A discrepancy in name can result in score reporting issues and delays. To update a name or correct a name, contact College Board at 1-888-225-5427.
Students should use an email address that they will have access to BEYOND high school.
College Board does not collect Social Security numbers, so your account is identified as unique based on your email address, School Student ID number, and name. Be consistent in how you enter information!
How do I know if my exam is activated?
Exams that have been successfully activated will show in your College Board MyAP account at http://myap.collegeboard.org – when you log in, you will be able to view the list of subjects. Active exams will display the exam title, exam date, and hosting school information on your MyAP Dashboard:
Where do I get an admission ticket?
Students do not need admission tickets to enter the AP® Exam testing facilities. However, each student does need a CURRENT picture id, such as a school ID or a driver’s license. Without picture ID students will not be allowed to enter the room.
What may I bring with me to the exam room?
Students may not bring into the exam room any type of backpack or bag, including purses. No study guides or materials are allowed. No cell phones, smartwatches or electronic communication devices are allowed. No iPads, iPods or MP3 players are allowed. No highlighters are allowed. Students may not bring bottled water/drinks or food to the testing room. (See Test Site Regulations for more information.) Students MUST bring a current picture ID, pencils, pens in blue or black ink, and a calculator if applicable.
