How do I order AP® exams?
Step 1: Activate the exam on MyAP – Students choosing to take the exams must log into their AP® Class on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org to activate the exam and complete the registration process. To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile. Students will receive a Join Code to enable joining the AP® Class from their Volcano Vista AP® Course teachers. Students must join the AP® Class on MyAP and activate their exam by joining the class/exam to their profile by October 29, 2023 to complete their order
Step 2: Submit exam fees – Students choosing to take the exams must submit the exam fee by October 29, 2023*. Click on the link below and complete the online payment form. You can submit the 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.
The cost of each 2024 AP® exam is $98. A discount of $20 will be available to all students for EARLY BIRD Registration. Early Bird registration will mean exams are only $78 each. Early Bird deadline is September 22, 2023.
ALL students enrolled in courses commencing in the Fall and choosing to take the exams must complete the online payment form and submit payment by October 29, 2023.*
⇒ BOTH steps above must be completed for an exam order to be considered complete.
Failure to complete the Join/Activation Step on MyAP will mean that the school coordinator cannot submit your exam order. Fees will automatically be refunded and no exam ordered.
LATE payment penalty fee of $20 per exam will be added to the price of the exam between October 30 and November 3, 2023.*
There is no wait list and no stand-by testing.
* Students enrolled in the AP® courses that are offered in the SPRING/Second Semester (i.e. the course does not commence until January 2024), may submit their payment in the Fall but are not recommended to do so. (You will not be able to complete the join step on MyAP until the course commences.) AP® Macroeconomics students and ONLY these students, will be allowed to place exam orders for these subjects without penalty fees between January 8 and March 4, 2024.
Where do I find my Join Code?
Join Codes are issued by your course teacher. They are subject, teacher and Volcano Vista HS 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®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. The email address used on the College Board profile should also match the email address on the APTS Payment form to ensure exam order reconciliation.
Students should provide a student ID number on the registration profile – this will 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 the link below.
What if I miss the deadline to submit fees?
Late Payment Submission for exams opens on October 30 and runs until November 3, 2023. A $20 late fee will be added to each exam during late registration. No exam orders except those for the Spring AP® classes will be accepted after November 3, 2023 .There is no late registration period in the Spring.
Is there financial aid available for the 2024 AP® exams?
Students on the federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program may qualify for a reduction or waiver of AP® exam fees. Please contact Ms Salazar at email@example.com if you need more information. If you are approved, you will receive a fee reduction code to apply to the online deposit form. The amount due can then be paid online or by mailing in a check.
***Due to the nature of the College Board’s AP Exam cancellation policy, all students eligible for a fee reduction are required to pay a $40 deposit by the exam ordering deadline to ensure a complete order. Once the student is confirmed to have taken the May 2024 exam, a partial refund of $37 will be issued to the original method of payment. Refunds will be issued in June and July.
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.
