Ordering AP Exams

AP Bulletin and Parents/Students pdf format

Significant changes to the AP exam ordering process are as follows:

  • Beginning September, 2019, students may register and pay for AP exams on FamilyID.
  • The deadline to register for an AP exam is November 1, 2019.
  • March 2, 2020----final ordering deadline---All exam fees are due by this date.


  • AP tests are $94 each.
  • AP Seminar & AP Research are the only two exceptions. They cost $142 each.
  • $40 Late registration fee
  • $40 exam cancelation/unused test fee

Deadline to Register:

  • Any student who wishes to take an AP exam in May must register for the exam and submit a $40 non-refundable deposit (which goes towards the cost of the exam) per exam by November 1, 2019.
  • As mentioned above, students can choose to make a $40 deposit (per test) rather than paying in full; however, students are encouraged to pay in full by November 1, 2019.
  • Students must pay in full ($94 per exam) by March 2, 2020.
  • If a student does not pay in full by March 2, 2020, the exam will not be ordered.
  • Students who receive free/reduced lunch will have their fee subsidized and can take AP tests free of charge. Students who receive free/reduced lunch must submit a $15 deposit per exam by November 1, 2019.  Those students will be reimbursed their $15 deposit after they complete the exam.

Late Registration:

  • Students can register late to take an AP exam between November 1, 2019 and March 2, 2020. However, they will be assessed a $40 late fee per exam (so the total cost of one exam would be $134).
  • The only exceptions (these are spring semester courses) are AP Comparative Government and Politics exam and the AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism exam. Students may order these exams between November 1, 2019 and March 2, 2020 without being assessed a $40 late fee.  A $40 deposit is still required, and the student must pay in full by March 2, 2020.


  • After a student registers for an exam and pays for the exam/submits their deposit, the student must take the exam. If the student does not take the exam, they will be assessed a $40 cancelation/unused exam fee (students who paid in full will be refunded all but $40). 


  • It is recommended that students pay in full by November 1, 2019. Students can pay in full online with a credit/debit card, or with cash/check/card in person at the LHS school bank.
  • If a student chooses only to pay their deposit ($40 per test), they must pay in person at the LHS school bank (no online payment option for deposits). Students may use cash, check, or card when paying in person at the school bank.
  • Students who register late after November 1, 2019, must deposit at least $80 per test (the $80 will go towards the $134 total).


To register and pay for AP exams, students must complete two steps:

First, students must register online via their College Board account.  Students must use their College Board account to register for each test they wish to take. More details regarding this process can be found here.

Second, after students register for their test online via their College Board account, students must also register and pay for their exam using FamilyID.  Directions for registering and paying via FamilyID are shared below. 

FamilyID Directions

We are excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of online registration for AP testing through FamilyID (www.familyid.com).  FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to sign-up for AP testing, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs. 

Anyone who wishes to participate in AP testing must create a FamilyID account.  Parents/Guardians must be part of the account/registration process.  Families that already have a FamilyID account (anyone who tried out for a sport had to create an account) do not need to create a new account.  However, you will still have to visit the link listed below and register for the AP test via FamlyID.  You may create a FamilyID account at any time, but you cannot register for an AP test on FamilyID until September 13, 2019.


A parent/guardian should register here.

  4. Click on the link in your activation E-mail, which will log you in to FamilyID.com

  9. On the next screen, click on Proceed to Payment to be directed to the payment processor (MySchoolBucks).
  10. In MySchoolBucks, you may log-in to your MySchoolBucks account or use a credit or debit card to process your payment. Input the cardholder’s full name, the card number, address and any other required information.
  11. After you click Pay, you will receive a completion email from the payment processor confirming your payment and an email from FamilyID confirming your registration. 

***Please note that you can still pay with cash or check at the LHS school bank if you prefer.  However, you will still need to register on FamilyID.  Please make checks out to Leonardtown High School and place “Account 203” on the memo line.  Your payment (either online or via the school bank) must be received by March 2,

College Board Accommodation Application 

AP Testing

Creating a College Board account.

Why create an account?

You must create a College Board account in order to enroll in the AP class digital classroom. All AP students must have a College Board account. A College Board account gives you access to all AP programs: SAT, AP, PSAT/NMSQT, CLEP, BigFuture, and more.
With a College Board account, you can access your SAT and AP scores online, and send them to colleges. You can also register for the SAT and CLEP exams, and print your SAT Admission Ticket or CLEP Registration Ticket. Additionally, an account lets you manage your personal college list, save your scholarship searches, compare costs at colleges that interest you, and more.
Advanced Placement students are expected to consistently log in to the AP Dashboard to access key resources and content that pertain to AP classes. Students are expected to recall College Board login information to access PSAT, SAT, and AP scores.
Students must order their AP Exams via their College Board account. If a student plans to take the AP exam, they must create an account. A $40 (this deposit goes towards the $94 exam fee) non-refundable fee (per exam) will be required by November 1, 2019 for students wishing to take the AP exam in May. Any orders placed after the November 1 st deadline will be subject to a $40 fee (this fee will be in addition to the $94 exam fee for a total of $134 per exam).
