The College Board has implemented changes to the Advanced Placement exam ordering and registration process, deadlines and fees for the 2019-20 school year.
A significant change is that students enrolled in an Advanced Placement (AP) course must order their AP exams from The College Board in the fall rather than the spring. Teachers will provide students with “join codes” to complete this process during their first week of class. Students will use their College Board username and password and join codes to enroll in each of their class sections and then order their exams that will be administered in the spring.
The join code also connects students to their class in The College Board’s new AP Classroom system, which gives students and teachers online access to practice resources and feedback.
Since The College Board does not offer an AP exam fee collection program, students will use the Total Registration online system to register and submit payment for their exams. A link to Total Registration will also be available on Schoology.
