Advanced Placement at Marshfield High School
BIG CHANGES TO ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAM ORDERING
Students enrolled in an AP class next year will take an AP Exam next May to qualify for college credit. As AP students and parents, there are several things you need to know, and a couple of things you have to do this summer to be prepared on the first day of school. Don’t worry – this should take less than 10 minutes!
First, you need to have a College Board Account! For some of you, you already have this. Your same College Board account log in is used for PSAT, SAT and AP, so if you have ever created an account for one of these, you have it done! Please do not create a 2nd account. If you do, it could prevent all of your SAT scores or AP scores from going to the correct college.
You can create an account or verify that you have an account at www.collegeboard.org. Here are some helpful hints for setting up your account or verifying the information if you already have an account:
- Make sure it is the student’s name that is on the account! I know this sounds obvious, but I know a few parents created accounts in the past to view PSAT scores. You don’t want mom or dad’s name on your AP or SAT scores when you apply to college.
- The students must have their own e-mail address associated with their account. This should not be their school email address because it does not actually accept e-mails. If you forget your log in, it will send you an e-mail to reset it, so you have to be able to get the e-mail. This shouldn’t be the parent’s e-mail address either. If you already have an account, please check this and change it if necessary.
- If you have problems with your account, please contact College Board. High Schools aren’t linked to them at all, so we can’t help with issues and they won’t talk to the counselor on your behalf.
- Please put your College Board log in somewhere safe and where you can find it easily. This may be in your phone – in the notes or a photo of the username and password. You will use this multiples times in high school, so you’ll want to remember it.
AP Exam Fees – Each exam is $94. There will be a minimum down payment of $40 per exam (which is non-refundable) and is due by October 30. The remaining exam fee balance must be paid in full by March 6.
Late and Cancellation Fees – AP Exams for year-long courses or AP classes taken only in the first semester are ordered in October, with a change deadline of October 30. AP Exams for classes that start in 2nd semester will be ordered in February with a change deadline of March 6. If anyone decides to order an exam after those dates, there is a $40 fee in addition to the regular exam fee. Should a student not take the exam for any reason after the October 30 or March 6 dates, parents/students are responsible for the $40 unused/cancellation fee.
