• AP students are required to join the My AP Classroom for each AP course in which they are enrolled. By joining the portal, students have access to College Board-created materials, and are automatically registered for the AP exam. AP teachers provided instructions in class. Students who join their classrooms after November 8th will be assessed a $40 late fee.
  • Students not sitting in an AP class, but who still wish to take an AP exam, must enroll in My AP Classroom using the appropriate self-study join code.
  • Students are reminded to enter information very carefully. Be sure to enter the student’s MCPS ID number. Use a personal e-mail address to register so you may access score reports after graduation. 


  • Exam fees can be reduced for those that qualify. Please fill out this fee waiver tied to state guidelines for family income.
