Register for AP Exams

You’ll need to join your class section online in order to register for the exam. Your school’s AP coordinator will order your exam materials and collect all fees. The deadline to register for exams is in the fall, but specific deadlines may vary by school—be sure to check with your teacher or AP coordinator.

Confirm Your Exam Registration


  1. Ensure you’ve joined your class section online.

    Sign in to My AP with your College Board account and make sure you’ve joined your class section. If you haven’t, you’ll need to follow the steps to join your section online.

  2. Register—or confirm your existing registration—in My AP.

    If your school requires you to indicate your exam registration, you'll see a Register button in your class section view in My AP after you join your class sections. Clicking this button will let your coordinator know that you plan to take the exam, and they will order it for you. If you don’t see that button, it means you’ve already been automatically registered for the exam.

    If you’d like to register for an exam after November, your order may be subject to a late fee. You’ll need to ask your AP coordinator to update your registration. If your class doesn’t start until the spring or you’ve transferred to a new school after the exam ordering deadline, don’t worry—your coordinator will be able to order your exam, and you won’t be charged a late order fee.

  3. Talk to your school's AP coordinator about paying exam fees.

    You can’t pay for your exam on this website. Your AP coordinator will collect any fees that you owe.

  4. Review your registration details.

    Once you have selected to register, the date and time of your exam will appear in your course card in My AP. You can review the exam schedule and talk with your AP coordinator if you have any questions about the start time for the exam(s) you’re scheduled to take.

    Your AP coordinator will notify you when and where to report for the exams.
