How do I order an exam?
Step 1: Activate your Exam on MyAP – Students will activate their AP® Exams on the College Board MyAP system at http://myap.collegeboard.org in their AP courses. Deadline to activate the exam is September 30, 2020.
This step will likely occur at the start of your class and happen during class instruction.
To log into the MyAP system, an active College Board profile account is needed. Your College Board profile is the same account used to order SAT® exams, or to collect PSAT/NMSQT® and AP® scores from previous years. If you do not have a profile, you will be able to create an account on http://myap.collegeboard.org (click on “Create account” beneath the log in space.) Do NOT create a new account if you believe you have one already – see below.
Each AP® Course teacher will provide you with a Join Code (or access code) to apply to your account during the activation process. These Join Codes link each specific subject to your account. (If you are absent when codes are distributed, you will need to obtain the code from your teacher and complete the step by September 30, 2020.)
Both returning and new users will be prompted to go through MyAP Registration pages on the MyAP website, see below for tips of what information to provide or update each year.
Step 2: Submit exam fees – Students will receive from APTS at their MyAP account email addresses on October 9, 2020, their customized exam fee invoices. Exam fees are due paid in full by November 30, 2020.
Exam fees can be submitted online using a credit or debit card, OR by mailing in a check or money order. Payment instructions are available on the digital invoice. Postmark deadline for mail in payments is November 24, 2020. Download the PDF copy of the invoice OR click on “View and Pay Online Now” on the invoice main screen.
Exams with an outstanding balance will have a late fee of $40 per exam applied between December 1 and December 15, 2020.
⇒ Exams with outstanding balances due as of December 16, 2020 will be de-activated on MyAP. Exams cannot be re-activated.
I can’t access my College Board profile or I can’t remember if I have one. What do I do?
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: 844-314-3632.
What information should I complete on my College Board profile?
The MyAP System will prompt you to complete the Registration screens if you are creating a new account. (If you have an account already, make sure to check through the MyAP Profile pages.)
Make sure that you enter your FULL legal name (should match your school records), your school student ID number, and also the name of your school. The email address on your profile should be your student email address (and if your school does not issue email addresses, it should be another STUDENT email address that is checked frequently and will be accessible after high school.) The email will be a crucial account identifier as well as where you will receive alerts from College Board and APTS.
On your College Board MyAP Profile you will also be prompted to complete the “Send Score” feature – on this screen you will submit the name of the college/university where you would like your free exam score report sent in July. Deadline to indicate the name of the school and qualify for a free report, is June 15, 2021.)
Where do I get the Join Codes to be able to activate the exam?
Join Codes are subject, teacher and class period specific. Teachers will distribute the codes in class. If you are absent, please see your AP® Class teacher to obtain the Join Codes.
All students must complete the Join Code activation step by September 30, 2020.
If you are registering for an exam that is linked to a course that you are not enrolled in currently, please see Ms. Ibarra for a special Exam Only Join code.
Can I make payments towards my balance due for my AP® Exam invoice?
Yes, students will receive their AP® Exam Fee Invoices beginning on October 9, 2020 at the STUDENT email address on your College Board profile. The full balance is due by November 30, 2020 but students/families can make payments throughout that period of time.
Penalty fees of $40 per exam will be applied to any outstanding balances as of December 1, 2020. Late payment will end on December 15, 2020. Exams without payment of the balance due on December 16, 2020 will be de-activated in MyAP. Exams cannot be re-activated.
Is there financial aid available for the 2021 AP® exams?
Please see Ms. Ibarra before October 9, 2020 if you believe your are eligible for financial aid/assistance on your exam fees. Students who are eligible for financial assistance based on the College Board guidelines will receive modified invoices.
I did not receive my AP® Exam Fee Invoice via email. What do I do?
Your AP® Exam Fee Invoice was emailed to the STUDENT email address that is linked to your College Board profile. It may have landed in your Spam folder – please check there. If you cannot find the invoice, please contact email@example.com to have your invoice re-issued.
Can I change when I take the exam?

What may I bring with me to the exam room?

How do I access my exam scores?
Students will be able to log into apscore.org starting in early July after the May exam administration. Students will log in using the same College Board profile account information as they used on the MyAP site. Scores collection will require active log in as well as the student’s AP® ID number – which is accessible in their MyAP accounts or on the label sheets that they will be allowed to retain at the completion of their last AP® exam of each year. AP ® ID numbers are assigned one time, and will be the same from year to year.
