How do I place an AP exam order?
Step 1:Activate Exam – Students must JOIN their AP® Class accounts on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org (regardless of whether or not they will be taking the AP® Exam! This site will provide students with class AND exam preparation resources.) To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile.
Students will obtain a Join Code from their West HS AP® Course teachers. Join Codes for the MyAP Site are subject, teacher and class period specific. The Join Code must be applied to the student account no later than October 28, 2022 to initiate an order (most students will do this in class within the first days of school to have access to the online course resources.)
Step 2: Submit Exam Fee – To indicate intention and commitment to take an AP® exam in the May 2023 AP® Exam administration, exam fees are due by October 28, 2022.
Payment can be submitted online with a debit or credit card, or via mailing in a check or money order. Payment options will be available for review at the end of the online fee payment form.
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
– Enter your school Student ID number in the field provided on MyAP. This will assist your school in accurate exam day attendance reporting
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 email@example.com 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.
What if I miss the October 28 deadline to submit fees?
A penalty period for late fee submission is available October 30 through November 4. Click on ‘Submit AP® Exams fees’ below. A penalty of $40 per exam will be levied.
No payments will be accepted after November 4, therefore no new orders will be initiated.
I’ve decided that I do not want to take the exam in May. What do I do?
Per West High School policies there are no cancellations and no refunds. Make your selection carefully.
What day is my test?
Please review the National AP® Exam Calendar posted at the link below. Exams may be off campus so all students registered for AP Exams must complete the Off Campus Permission form (linked HERE) and submit it along with the Medical Release form (Linked HERE) to the Student Services office by April 8, 2023.
How can I earn college credit through AP®?
If you take the AP® exam at the end of the Spring semester, you can earn college credit by earning a score of a 3, 4, or 5 or the exam. To determine what score you will need at one school, use the College Board’s website: AP® Credit Search
Please keep in mind that many colleges will award credit for AP® Test scores of 3 or higher. West High School therefore recommends that you participate in taking the exam(s). Current school board policy states that you must take the exam in order to earn additional points on the final student grade point average. You will have the option of sending scores to colleges you may want to attend.
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 3.1% for payments submitted by credit or debit card. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the online payment form and in your e-mail confirmation which will be sent to the parent email address you provide on the registration form. Postmark deadline to ensure timely mail in fee processing is October 24, 2022.
I’m enrolled in the APAA/Niswonger online courses – How do I register for the exam?
Students taking the APAA/Niswonger online courses have their exam fees covered by a grant and do not need to submit fees. Please contact Ms. Rawlings at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a special Exam Only Join Code for MyAP to enable the ordering of the exam to be hosted by West HS.
Is there fee assistance available?
Fee reduction/assistance – Fee reductions are possible for qualified students. If you feel you may qualify for a fee reduction, please submit the AP® Fee Waiver Application Form (Linked here) to Ms. Rawlings in the counseling office. Once eligibility has been confirmed, you will be provided with a Fee Reduction Code that will reduce the price of the exam(s) on the fee form to the appropriate amount.
What if I have two AP® and/or IB® exams scheduled for the same date and time?
Students who anticipate a conflict with another AP® exam offered at the same date and time OR with an IB® exam, should continue their registration. At the registration point it is subject specific information, not date information that is being gathered. APTS will run a report for your school to indicate conflicts and you will be contacted via email regarding your alternate AP® exam date assignment when approved.
How do I prepare for an AP® exam?
See the AP® website for previous test questions, study tips and more: AP® Exam Prep
Are the AP® tests given at West High School?
Exam Locations will be announced closer to the exam date. Exams may be off campus so all students registered for AP Exams must complete the Off Campus Permission form (linked HERE) and submit it along with the Medical Release form (Linked HERE) to the Student Services office by April 8, 2023.
What happens if I do not show up to take my exam on the day of the test?
A no show will forfeit all exam fees submitted. However, certain circumstances allow for a student to take the exam on the late test day. However, most students that fail to show up but still want to take an exam on the late test day will be responsible for purchasing an additional test at $97, a late fee of $45 and covering the cost of a proctor.
How do I receive my scores?
By completing the exam activation process on the MyAP site, you will be issued a unique AP® ID number. Scores are usually available in early July by using the AP® ID and your College Board log in to retrieve scores at http://apscores.org
