How do I drop a student from a class section?

beginning of content:

If a student enrolled in a class section is no longer taking the course, you’ll need to drop the student from the class section in AP Registration and Ordering. Don’t drop a student from a class section if they’re transferring out of your school. If a student transfers out, you need to indicate them as transfer out, which is a different action than drop. See How do I adjust my order for a student who transfers out of my school?

To drop a student from a class section, go to Students in the top navigation menu. Click Drop Student from the Actions column next to the student’s name. Students can’t drop themselves from a class section.

If a student is dropping a course and the student’s Order Exam Status? is Yes, verify if the student still plans to take the AP Exam for the course.

  • If the student’s Order Exam? status is Yes, and you have already submitted your exam order, you’ll need to indicate whether you want to drop the student from the section and remove the exam from the order, or if you want to drop the student from the section but keep the exam in the order. After dropping the student and verifying whether they still want to take the exam, submit the change to your order. (If a teacher drops a student from a class section after you’ve submitted your exam order, the student is automatically moved to a Dropped Students exam only section. See What happens if a teacher drops a student from a class section? for details.)
  • If the student’s Order Exam? status is Yes, and you haven’t yet submitted your exam order, the student is removed from the exam roster. If the student still wants to take the exam without taking the class, don’t drop the student from a class section; instead, move the student to an exam only section.
