Questions? Need more info? Detailed instructions on how to register for an AP Exam are below.

1st – A College Board account is needed

Your student will need to have a College Board Account! For many, they already have this. The same College Board account log-in is used for PSAT, SAT and AP, so if they have ever created an account for one of these, it is done! Please do not create a 2nd account. If they do, it could prevent all of your student’s SAT scores or AP scores from correctly going to their selected college.

If you need to create an account or verify that you have one, please go to College Board’s website.

Here are some helpful hints for setting up your account or verifying your account information:

  • When creating a student account please be sure the student’s name is on the account. The student does not want a parent’s name on the account when applying for college.
  • If there are problems with the account, please contact College Board. High Schools are not linked to them at all, so we cannot help with issues.
  • Please put your College Board log-in somewhere safe. You will use this multiples times in high school, so you’ll want to remember it.  

2nd – Register for the exam.

Students will register for AP exams in their AP classes.

  • In-class Registration dates:  Now until Monday, October 11th.
    • Students will register in each class using “join codes” given to them from their teacher in order to join the class section. Please see these Student Instructions for details.
