About Your AP Exam E-ticket


  • You cannot take this year’s AP Exam without an e-ticket.
  • College Board will send you an e-ticket by email 2 days before your exam.
  • You’ll need this e-ticket to check in to your exam on exam day.
  • You’ll get a unique e-ticket for each exam you’re registered for.
  • Each e-ticket is personalized for you—it contains your AP ID. Don’t share your e-ticket with anyone.
  • For AP Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish Language and Culture Exams: You must check in with your e-ticket on exam day using the same device that you’ve installed the AP World Languages Exam App on—that’s the device you will use for the whole exam. You can only enter the exam by checking in with your e-ticket and clicking “Start My Exam” when prompted, which will launch the app in exam mode.

Final Exception Testing Window

The 2020 AP Exam administration—both regular and makeup testing—is complete. A small number of students are eligible to take exams in the exception testing window (June 22–30). The deadline to request exception testing has passed.

Do not try to use your May or early-June makeup e-ticket for the late-June exception testing exam. We’ll send you a different e-ticket two days before the exception exam date.

Review Your Contact Information

If you haven’t received any email updates from the AP Program, confirm that your email address in My AP is correct. In addition to e-tickets, College Board is sending other important information through email. You’ll need access to your email inbox or College Board account from the computer or device you plan to use to take the exams.
