Exam Fee Payment Deadline: February 26, 2021
How do I order an exam?
Step 1: 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. Codes are issued by your class teacher and are class/teacher and period specific. Joining the class automatically activates the exam. Deadline to activate: October 1, 2020.
Step 2: Students who successfully activated their exams by joining their class on MyAP will receive on November 16, 2020 a custom digital invoice via email from APTS for their applicable exam fees due. Payment in full of the exam fee is due by February 26, 2021.
The digital invoice will have a link where the student can submit exam fees via credit/debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order.
It is possible to make payments towards the invoice balance due. Full balance due must be submitted no later than February 26, 2021.
A 3% online service charge will be added to the exam cost for online payments. Mail in payments do not incur this cost, postmark deadlines do however apply. Mail in payments must be payable to “APTS”. Instructions are included on the invoice. Postmark deadline is February 22, 2021.
A penalty fee of $40 per exam will be assessed for exams that are activated after November 13, 2020.
Exams without the corresponding fees submitted by February 26, 2021 will be cancelled and will not be reactivated
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 October 1, 2020 to obtain the Join Codes.
Is there financial aid available for the 2021 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 December 18, 2020. Submission of your approval letter will adjust your balance due to the fee reduction price on your digital invoice. If you have already received an invoice for full fees in November and you submit your application for Free or Reduced Lunch after that date, your invoice will be updated and reissued.
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 15, 2021.
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.
