Exam Registration Deadline: October 20, 2023
How do I order exams?
Step 1: Activate the exam on MyAP by logging in at http://myap.collegeboard.org with your College Board Profile and joining the AP Class online with the Join Code.
Join Codes are issued by your teacher and are class, teacher and subject specific.
Once you have joined the class by clicking ‘Add Exam/Class’ and entered the code, make sure to review and update/complete the MyAP Profile. Use your FULL legal name and an email address that is frequently checked to ensure you receive College Board notices and emails.
Students can also request a free Send Score Report, a free transcript of scores to one college/university. Complete the Send Score screen on MyAP by June 15 to be eligible for the free score send.
You must be joined to your AP class on MyAP no later than October 20, 2023.
Step 2: Submit exam fees no later than October 20, 2023 by clicking Submit AP® Exam Fees
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. A credit card processing fee of 3.1% is added to online payments using credit or debit card. No processing fee is charged for mailing in a payment. Postmark deadline for mailing in a payment is October 16 to ensure timely processing.
What if I can’t log into my College Board Profile account?
Don’t create a second account!
Each student should have only ONE College Board Profile 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
What if I qualify for Free-Reduced Lunch or other Fee Reductions?
Fee reductions are available but must be applied for before finalizing the order to ensure meeting the registration deadline. Approval may take several days. To apply for a fee reduction, contact Principal Hannan or Ms. Oden at email@example.com
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.
How do I figure out where my exam will be administered?
Exam day information will be released by your school closer to the exam administration.
When do I need to report to the testing room?
For morning exams, students need to report to the testing room at 7:30am and the exam will begin at 8:00am. For afternoon exams students need to report to the testing room beginning at 12:01pm and the exam will begin at 12:30pm.
For security reasons and per College Board regulations, students will NOT be admitted to the room once the exam materials have been opened. Late arrivals who are not admitted to the room are considered ‘no shows’ and are not eligible for the partial refund or for make-up of the exam.
How do I know when the exam is? How do I know how long the exam is?
Exam calendar is posted on the calendar link below. Exams are either Morning (7:30 a.m. check-in) exams or Afternoon (12:01 p.m. check-in) exams. On average, exams last 4 hours. Students should notify coaches, parents, etc. accordingly since no early dismissal is possible from the exam.
Do I need to excuse my absence from school during the exam?
Your school 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 not excused for the entire day. You must follow your school site’s protocol for checking back in when returning to campus (i.e. checking in with Attendance to get a pass.) You are responsible for all school work missed during your absence for AP® Exams.
What if I have more than one exam scheduled for the same day and same time? What if I have two exams scheduled on the same day?
College Board makes provisions for students who would like to register to take two exams that are scheduled at the EXACT same time and date. Please email Ms. Oden at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to get information on late testing locations and information. Unfortunately, you would not be eligible for late testing if you are taking two exams back to back (i.e. one in the morning and one in the afternoon).
What if I decide to not take an exam? Can I get a refund?
No. SFC policy requires students enrolled in an AP® course to sit for the corresponding AP® exam, with the following exception:
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.
What if I get sick and can’t make the exam?
There are provisions for students who become sick or injured during or right before testing. In case of such an emergency, please contact your AP Coordinator IMMEDIATELY since ordering deadlines apply. A doctor’s note will be requested.
How do I get my scores?
AP® Exam scores will be available as of July via your free College Board student account – for more information, click HERE.
