Deposit Submission Deadline: Nov 8, 2019
Balance Due Deadline: March 6, 2020
How do I order an exam?
Step 1: Submit an exam deposit – All students intending to take an exam in May 2020 will submit a $5 non-refundable deposit by November 8, 2019 by clicking the link below.
Step 2: Activate your exam on MyAP – Students log into the College Board MyAp site at http://myap.collegeboard.org using their College Board profiles and connect to their exam subjects with a Join Code (access code) to activate their exams. Students activate the exam by setting the exam decision indicator to YES. Deadline to activate: November 8, 2019.
⇒ Failure to complete BOTH steps 1 and 2 above by November 8, 2019 will mean that your AP Coordinator cannot submit your exam order to College Board and the exam will be deactivated.
Step 3: Students who successfully activated their exams by completing steps 1 and 2 above will receive in December custom digital invoices via email for their applicable balance due. Payment in full of the balance of exam fee is due by March 6, 2020.
⇒ Students with outstanding balances due as of March 7, 2020 will have a $40 late fee applied per exam. Without payment of the balance due, the student will not be allowed to sit for the May exam administration.
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.
Where do I get the Join Codes to be able to activate the exam?
Join Codes are subject, teacher and class period specific. Please see your RMHS AP Class teacher before November 8, 2019 to obtain the Join Codes.
Can I make payments towards my balance due for my AP® Exam invoice?
Yes, students will receive their AP® Exam Fee Invoices beginning in early December at the parent email address provided on the exam deposit form. The full balance is due March 6, 2020 but students/families can make payments throughout that period of time.
Penalty fees of $40 per exam will be applied to any outstanding balances as of March 7, 2020. Without payment of the balance due, the student will not be allowed to sit for the May exam administration.
Is there financial aid available for the 2020 AP® exams?
Students on the federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program may qualify for a reduction or waiver of AP® exam fees. Please make sure a copy of your approval letter is turned in to Ms. Iparraguirre, Ms. Ballard’s secretary, by November 8, 2019. Submission of your approval letter will adjust your balance due to the fee reduction price on your digital invoice.
I did not receive my AP® Exam Fee Invoice via email. What do I do?
Your AP® Exam Fee Invoice was emailed to the parent email address that you have provided on your exam deposit form . If you cannot find the invoice, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
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. Click the calendar link below.
What if I have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan?
The College Board must approve any changes or modifications to the AP® exam administration.
Students with a current IEP or 504 plan who wish to receive testing modifications must contact their case manager ASAP. We will work together to file the appropriate paperwork with College Board to allow testing modifications. This process must be completed by January 17, 2020.
What may I bring with me to the exam room?
Students MUST bring their student ID, pencils, pens in blue or black ink, and a calculator (if applicable).
Students may NOT bring iPod, iPads, Smartwatches or MP3 or highlighters into the exam room. Cell phones and electronic communication device, backpacks and bags, including purses, should be left at home.
Do I need to excuse my absence with other teachers during the exam?
The attendance office will receive a copy of an attendance roster from the exam so you will automatically be excused for the class periods that are affected by the testing. You are responsible for all school work missed during your absence for AP Exams.
What if I finish the exam early? Can I leave early?
Per College Board’s security regulations for exams, students may not leave the test until time is called and all examinees are excused together. If a student leaves without permission, their exam will be collected and submitted separately to College Board. Their score will be cancelled and no refund will be possible. Exams are approximately 4 hours. Please be prepared for the duration of the exam.
