Enrolling in an AP course/class does not automatically sign you up to take your AP exam(s). Student registration for your AP exam(s) is required! Since the CollegeBoard does not collect fees directly, there are TWO steps required to complete registration for EACH exam. Students, when going though both steps, please be sure to enter ALL information asked and be accurate. Use the same email address for both accounts and use your FULL name (not shortened):
1) Sign up for each course in your CollegeBoard account. Students will log into their collegeboard account through MyAP. Students will be given a "Join Code" from each of their AP teachers to join their AP classroom.
2) Pay for your exam(s) through Total Registration. Students will go through a short registraion process, select all of their AP exams, and pay for all exams (Note: Students eligible for Free/Reduced Priced Meals will be able to indicate this during the registration process; if approved, your AP exam fees will be covered.
The CollegeBoard has hard deadlines for registration. Students who register after the deadline will inquire a $40 late fee (CollegeBoard Policy) so do not wait!!!!
ACT offers many opportunities to take the ACT throughout the year. Students/families can register for an ACT exam at anytime. You can register here.
