Advanced Placement (AP) Programs
AP Test Registration and Information
The 2024 AP exams will cover the full content in each AP course, so students have the opportunity to receive college credit and/or placement. Every AP student should keep their options open by registering for the exam on time because there will be a $40 fee for late orders. The College Board will support in-school testing in 2024 because administering exams in schools maximizes access and opportunity. If safety concerns still prohibit any students from testing at a school, the College Board will provide a contingency testing option that contains full course content.
Students - Create a College Board Account
Students will need a College Board account to join their AP class section, receive AP assignments from teachers, get feedback on class progress, and register for AP exams (note: parents should not create an account for the student). If you don’t have a student account, go to www.collegeboard.org/register.
Students creating a College Board account for the first time:
It is recommended that students use their Northshore email account (@apps.nsd.org) when registering. Failure to do so may cause a student to not get the correct AP exam or delay their test scores.
Already Have a College Board Account?
All College Board programs are connected through one account. If an account was created during for a previous year, you must use the same login information. You will also use the same login information for AP, PSAT/NMSQT or SAT, as well.
AP Registration and Payment
