How do I place an AP® exam order?
STEP 1: Activate your exam – Log into the College Board MyAP site at http://myap.collegeboard.org using your College Board profile and apply the ‘Join Code’ (access code) you receive from your teacher for each of your subjects.
College Board profiles are the same accounts used to order SAT exams, or to collect prior year PSAT/NMSQT or AP Exam scores. Do not create a new account if you already have one (see below for tips.)
Students will obtain a Join Code (access code) from their AP® Course teachers. Join Codes for the MyAP Site are subject, teacher and class period specific.
Once the student has joined the online AP Class group, they will be prompted to complete the MyAP Registration Profile pages.
Students enrolled in courses that commence in the SPRING Semester, will be able to register and activate the exam by completing the Join Step once the course commences.
?For yearlong and Fall Courses, complete the Join Code step by November 1, 2019.
?For Spring Microeconomics Courses, complete the Join Code step by March 10, 2020.
STEP 2: Submit exam fees – Click on “Submit fees for AP Exams” below and submit your fees.
Payment for exams may be done via credit card or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. There will be an online payment fee of 3% for payments submitted by credit or debit card. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the online registration form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the parent email address you provide on the registration form.
?For yearlong and Fall courses, exam fees are due by November 1, 2019. A penalty fee will be charged between November 2 and March 10 of $40 per exam.
?For Spring Microeconomics courses, exam fees are due between February 3 and March 10,2020. No late payment submission in the Spring.
? Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by November 1, 2019 to activate the exam order corresponding to a yearlong or Fall course. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by November 1, 2019 means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board without penalty.
? Both Step 1 and 2 must be completed by March 10, 2020 to activate the exam order corresponding to a SPRING course. Failure to complete both steps 1 and 2 by the March 10, 2020 deadline means the AP Coordinator for your school cannot submit an exam order as initiated with College Board.
Why do I need to activate an exam on The College Board MyAP System?
Starting in August 2019, College Board has launched a new system that all students join if enrolled in an AP® Course. The MyAP system provides students a variety of excellent, College Board vetted FREE resources to apply to their AP Course and AP® exam preparation. In addition, students will now JOIN the AP ®Group and complete the Registration Profile section on the MyAP website to enable custom printing of AP® exam barcode labels for each student for exam day. No more pre-administration!
Tips for setting up your College Board Profile on MyAP:
– Use an email address that you will have access to throughout high school AND university
– Make sure to enter your COMPLETE legal name to prevent issues with sending score reports to colleges and universities. Double check that it’s YOUR name on the account – it may sound silly, but out of habit a parent may have entered their own name, or even autofill may have entered a name for you that is not correct and will delay your score reporting to Colleges and Universities.
I can’t access my College Board Profile account or am not sure I have one. What do I do?
The College Board Profile is the same account used to access your past years’ AP® scores, PSAT® scores, and SAT® scores. Do not create a new one! Each student should have only ONE unique account. If you are unable to access the account, try using the ‘Forget Password?’ link on http://myap.collegeboard.org OR email firstname.lastname@example.org OR call 888-225-5427 for assistance.
Where do I get the Join Code to complete the join step on the MyAP site?
Join Codes are subject, teacher, and period specific. Please see your AP® teacher ASAP to complete the step by November 1, 2020 for the Fall registration period, and between February 3-March 10 for the Spring registration period.
Why can’t I receive the Join Code for my Spring classes/exams early? Why do I need to wait until February?
College Board research shows that early commitment to the exam does mean greater levels of student success. HOWEVER, that means early commitment ‘within the class.’ For courses that do not commence until January or even February, College Board has a special Spring deadline, with no penalty fees, specifically for students enrolled in these courses. This allows students a chance to see the course syllabus, speak with the teacher, and preview the content.
What if I miss the Fall November 1 deadline to submit fees?
A penalty fee of $40 per exam will automatically be applied to any payments submitted between November 2 and March 10, 2020. It is therefore CRUCIAL to meet the deadline.
What if I missed the Spring March 10 deadline to submit my exam fees? What do I do?
It is crucial to meet the March 10 deadline. Due to the Spring timeline, there is no late payment submission and exam ordering period in the Spring.
How do I submit the exam fees?
Payment for exams may be done via credit card or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. There will be an online payment fee of 3% for payments submitted by credit or debit card. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the online deposit form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadline for the Fall registration period to ensure timely mail in deposit processing is October 28, 2019.
Can I cancel my exam?
Refunds/Cancellation: Students who submit a cancellation request by 11:59pm EST on November 1, 2019 will receive a full refund. Students who submit a cancellation request after November 1 and before 11:59pm EST on March 10, 2020, will receive a partial refund. A $40 unused exam fee will be forfeited. Exams cancelled after March 10 or examinees who no show on exam day are not eligible for a refund. To cancel email email@example.com and include the student name, name of the school and the title of the exam to cancel.
