How do I know if I have an AP exam ordered?
To verify you have an AP exam ordered, log into the student's myap account. On the home screen you must see the AP Class Title, to the right of the AP Class assignments information you will see Exam Day. If under Exam Day it shows the exam date followed by "Registered for exam" then you have that AP exam ordered. If you don't see the wording "registered for exam" then no AP exam is ordered.
How do I cancel an ordered AP Exam?
A parent will need to email Mrs. Guldan, the AP Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email include the student's first and last name and the AP exam name(s) the parent approves to drop.

AP Exam Scores
AP scores are no longer automatically mailed to students. Students need to create a College Board account at https://apstudent.collegeboard.org. You will need to know your AP number or high school ID number to access your scores. If you already have a College Board account, you can sign in at this website as well. Marshfield HS students are encouraged to create an account by the end of April. An AP score report should include all the scores a student has taken during their high school career. If any scores are not on the report, there is a problem with the student’s account and the student will need to contact the College Board at (888) 225-5427 to inform them that scores are missing. Students will be asked to provide their AP number. If you don't know your AP number you may be able to access your scores by using your Marshfield High School ID number. It is very important that you send an official score report to the college where you plan to attend so that the college can evaluate for credit transferability. Also, UW Help has a resource that allows you to review the AP credit granting policy of every college in the UW System.
