Changes to AP Test Ordering and Resources.

There are many changes this year to the AP exams, the biggest being that the exams ordering deadline is November 4th, and any exams added or removed after November 13th, 2019 will incur a $40 fee. This is a required change mandated by College Board. 

AP Exam ordering is a three step process this year.

  1. Students join each AP class with a Join Code that is provided by the teacher at the students myAP account at (  Students who wish to Self Study for a subject must contact Mr. Butler or Ms. Dresser for the Join Code.
  2. Once a student has joined the AP Class, they must click on the Order Exam button on their myAP account for each subject they wish to take the AP Exam. (  This will place the exam order(s).
  3. Within two days, an obligation will be posted for the student for the exam(s) ordered.  The obligation website can be found at:  Obligations can be paid with a credit/debit card (a 3.75% fee will be added), a check made out to Poolesville High School and turned in to the Financial Office, or cash turned into the Financial Office.


Families that are on a FARMS status will have most of their AP fees waived.  FARMS applications must be completed each year to get this waiver.

All students taking an AP Exam will need to submit an AP Permission Form .

Another change is that students will have more access to AP Practice and feedback resources.  Click HERE to see more information on the new method for signing up for these resources.  Students will receive the required "Join Codes" in their AP Classes.
