What is the deadline to order AP® exams?
The deadline to place an order for May 2020 exams is November 1, 2019.
There will be no waiting list and no stand-by testing.
How do I order AP® exams?
Step 1: Click on Submit AP® Exam Payment and complete the online form. You can submit payment using either a credit/debit card OR mail-in a check or money order. Instructions are included at the end of the form based on the payment option that you choose.
ALL students choosing to take the optional exam must complete the online payment form and submit payment by November 1, 2019. Postmark deadline for mail in payments is October 28, 2019.
Step 2: Activate the AP® EXAM GROUP and complete the online profile on the new College Board MyAP® website at http://myap.collegeboard.org. Students MUST complete this step to complete their exam order. To Activate the exam, students will need a Join Code from their SHS AP® teacher. Join codes are subject, teacher and period specific. Deadline to Join the exam group using the Join Code is November 1, 2019.
⇒ BOTH steps above must be completed for an exam order to be considered complete.
Failure to complete the Join Step on MyAP will mean that the school coordinator cannot submit your exam order. Fees will automatically be refunded and no exam ordered.
There will be no waiting list and no stand-by testing.
Why are there now multiple steps for registration?
The College Board has launched this new system nationwide in August 2019 for May 2020 AP® Exams.
What are the benefits of the new system that College Board is using?
The online Group JOIN component will allow College Board to personalize student exam materials for exam day. This will mean no longer having to bubble onto a scantron crucial details like name, ID number and email address. AND it will mean faster and more accurate results to your colleges and universities! In addition, by also joining the Group with a teacher issued Join Code, students will be able to access homework and test assignments from their AP® Teachers that will include secure questions from the College Board AP® Question Bank. Students will also have access to review materials and resources.
Where do I find my Join Code?
Join Codes are issued by your course teacher. They are subject, teacher and SHS Class period specific. Please see your teacher ASAP.
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 a SAT® or SAT® 2 Exam. You may already have an account if you have taken any of 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: 1-866-630-9305.
Which information should I provide on my College Board MyAP Registration 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 1-866-630-9305.
Students should use an email address that they will have access to BEYOND high school and where they can receive alerts from College Board or APTS.
Students should provide a student ID number on the registration profile – this will enable easier attendance reporting to the SHS attendance office on exam day as well as enable identification of any errors in student name (for example, nicknames versus legal names.)
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!
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. To view the exam calendar, click HERE.
Is there financial aid available for the 2020 AP® exams?
Fee reductions are available to students who are currently on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. If you are currently on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program, the fee is $5 per test. In order to register for AP® tests at the reduced price, please complete the application available at the link below and submit it to Ms. Skinner no later than October 29th. If your application is approved, you will receive a Fee Reduction Code. Once you receive your code you will be able to register on the APTS payment website at the reduced amount. Code usage is verified with APTS. Deadline to register using the fee reduction is November 1, 2019.
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 and submit a request for accommodations no later than January 17, 2020. They will work with you to file the appropriate paperwork with College Board to allow testing modifications.
