Registration & Fees

The Advanced Placement exams for the 2023-2024 school year will require students to complete a two-step registration and ordering process. Students will order their AP exams in the fall through the College Board. Our AP teachers will provide each student with a “join code” and will assist students in completing this process during the first week of classes. Students will use the “join codes” online via their College Board accounts to enroll in each of their AP class sections and to order their exams.

This year, students will indicate their exam decision for each of their AP courses in which they enroll in College Board/My AP. Once enrolled, students will see an order exam status of Undecided until they indicate their exam registration. It is important for students to accurately indicate their exam order status to ensure an accurate exam order, because student registration and enrollment in College Board/My AP will no longer default to order an exam for students. 

Students will continue to use Total Registration to submit payment for their exams. Please see important dates below for ordering exams through My AP and submitting payment through Total Registration.

    • Immediately – College Board and Total Registration opens for registration and payment. The exam fee is $100 per exam.
    • Friday, November 10 at 11:59 p.m.Final ordering deadline. Registration in College Board and payment via Total Registration after this date will incur a $40 late fee per exam. This is the last day to cancel an exam and receive a full refund.
    • Monday, March 4 at 11:59 p.m.Registration ends. Registration fees that have not been paid will be canceled and exams will not be ordered.
    • AP exams are scheduled May 6-10 and May 13-17, 2024.

Please contact Principal Gregory Lawson, glawson@jd.cnyric.org, if you have any questions.
