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.
