Important Updates for 2023-24

2024 In-School Digital AP Exams 

For the 2024 AP Exam administration, schools in the 48 contiguous states and Washington, D.C. can choose to give either paper or in-school digital exams (or a combination of paper and in-school digital). Review digital exam details.

We plan to work with schools in Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, as well as schools outside the United States, to gauge interest in a potential pilot of 2024 digital AP Exams. Those schools will receive further information later this fall. 

If your school chooses to administer in-school, proctored digital exams in one or more subjects, you should indicate this in AP Registration and Ordering by November 15, 2023. If you’ve indicated digital exams by this date, you’ll be included in readiness activities that begin in early 2024. You can switch students to paper exams after this date, if needed.


AP Exam Fees

The base exam fee is increasing by $1 for the 2024 AP Exams. The base exam fees are:

  • $98 per exam at schools in the U.S., U.S. territories, Canada, and all DoDEA schools
  • $128 per exam at schools outside the U.S., U.S. territories, and Canada, with the exception of DoDEA schools (Fees may vary for exams at College Board–authorized test centers outside the U.S.)
  • $146 per exam for AP Capstone™ (AP Seminar or AP Research) 

The College Board fee reduction amount is increasing to $36 per exam for eligible students. See details about AP Exam fee reductions.

The late-order and late-testing fees aren’t changing. Those amounts remain $40 per exam (in addition to the base exam fee).

The unused/canceled exam fee is $40 per exam.

AP College Board piloted the fall registration process which resulted in the host of free resources available to students in AP Classes and AP teachers. Some of the resources include.
  • An improved ordering system and time-saving registration labels for coordinators.
  • Exams are ordered per student for each exam they are enrolled in rather than a bulk number of exams per subject.
  • Schools can no longer order extra exams.
  • Schools can’t give an exam ordered for one student to another student who wasn’t a part of the exam order.
  • AP students were provided with information by their AP teachers to sign in to myap.collegeboard.org and enroll in their AP class sections using a unique code for each class.
  • Students and teachers are able to utilize AP Classroom resources, and students are included in the AP coordinator’s exam roster in AP Registration and Ordering.
  • Students access My AP Classroom allows them to receive assignments from their teachers, and get feedback on their performance.
  • AP Teachers access to AP Classroom allows them to use new free resources including an online question bank of real AP Exam questions and performance results to help target additional practice on specific content and skills.
