What is the purpose of the late order fee?

beginning of content:

The late order fee is intended to ensure that the vast majority of exam orders are placed by the final ordering deadline.

This supports fall exam registration, a best practice that positively impacts student participation and performance. Receiving exam orders in the fall also helps the AP Program operate more efficiently and cost-effectively by allowing us to determine exam booklet quantities and the number of Readers who score AP Exams with greater accuracy.
