Managing Orders for 2020 Exams

We’ve made changes to this year’s exam ordering tasks, deadlines, and policies. Here’s what you need to know.

Learn more about 2020 changes to fees, invoicing, and payment or this year’s exam administration process.

Ordering Exams

You can’t submit new exam orders. All students included in your school’s exam order as of the March 13 ordering deadline will be able to take AP Exams this year. However, new exam orders cannot be processed at this point.

Indicating Student Fee Reduction Eligibility

The deadline for this task has been extended. You must indicate a student’s fee reduction eligibility by May 26 (11:59 p.m. ET) in AP Registration and Ordering. This is necessary for an accurate invoice. Learn more about policies around fees, invoicing, and payment for this year.

Order Changes Aren’t Needed in AP Registration and Ordering

You don’t need to make any further changes in AP Registration and Ordering related to your exam order. For instance, AP coordinators don’t need to indicate standard/late testing, cancel master CD orders, or cancel special exam format materials.

Student Exam Decisions

Students don’t need to communicate whether they plan to take the exam before the exam administration, and there’s no action required of the AP coordinator if a student decides not to take an exam that was ordered for them.

If a student doesn’t take an online exam, the exam will be removed from your final invoice. We encourage students to wait until closer to the exam date to decide whether they will take the exam.
