Exam Fee Submission Deadline: December 17, 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). Codes are issued by your class teacher and are class/teacher and period specific.
All students should join the AP Classroom for access to learning resources. To activate the optional exam, students click on the “Register for Exam” button.
Deadline to activate: November 5, 2021.
Step 2: Students who choose to take the optional exams must submit a $5 per exam fee between November 5, 2021 and December 17, 2021.
A personalized invoice will be emailed to each student at the STUDENT email address on thier College Board profiles on or around November 5, 2021.
A 3.1% 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 to meet the deposit deadline is December 13, 2021.
A penalty fee of $40 per exam will be assessed for exams that are activated after November 15, 2021.
Students who order an exam and cancel will be held liable for the $40 per exam cancellation penalty fee levied by College Board.
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 5, 2021 to obtain the Join Codes.
Is there financial aid available for the 2022 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 13, 2021.
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 18, 2022.
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.
