Already have an account from another College Board program? Then you can use the same one—even if you’ve moved, changed schools, have a different last name, or have a different email.
If not, you’ll need to create an account to join your class section and access AP resources, including AP Classroom and AP Daily videos. You can also use this account for the SAT and other programs—plus managing your college list, saving scholarship searches, and comparing college costs.
What You Need to Create an Account
Anyone who is 13 or older can create a College Board account by completing the online form and choosing a username and password. You do not need to wait for a teacher or AP coordinator to create the account for you.
You’ll want to pick a password that’s completely private: don’t share it with anyone. Likewise, if you are using a shared or public computer, it’s best to disable the autofill setting on your browser while you register for an account.
If You Already Have an Account
Even if you now attend a different school, you can keep the same College Board account by updating your information. One account works for all College Board programs and assessments. (In fact, we advise against creating a second account, since it may make it difficult to access your information and lead to problems like delayed scores.)
If anything changes—email, name, school, home address—please update your account as soon as possible.
