This will allow for custom printing of exam materials.) For more information on MyAP visit the FAQ page.

Students should use their legal name (to match school records), so that the name will also match the student’s School ID or driver’s license at exam check in.

To update a name or correct a name, contact College Board at 1-866-630-9305.

Students should use an email address that they will have access to BEYOND high school and be consistent with which email address they use. Emails will be used as a unique identifier between the payment system and the MyAP system.
