Ordering Digital AP Exams

Schools in the 48 contiguous states and Washington D.C. that prefer digital testing and are prepared to meet all technology requirements can order digital AP Exams in the 7 available subjects: 

  • AP Computer Science Principles  

  • AP English Language and Composition  

  • AP English Literature and Composition  

  • AP European History 

  • AP Seminar 

  • AP U.S. History

No application is required. The AP coordinator simply needs to indicate the mode for relevant exams in AP Registration and Ordering. 

Indicating Digital Exams in AP Registration and Ordering 

The AP coordinator should: 

  1. Log in to AP Registration and Ordering and go to the Students page. 

  2. Set a Courses filter for one of the subjects with a digital exam option. 

  3. In the Exam Date column, select Std-Digital per student per exam.

  1. Once all changes have been confirmed, submit the updates to the school’s exam order no later than November 15, 11:59 p.m. ET. 

After November 15: The AP coordinator can switch students back to “Std-Paper," if needed, but must do this by March 15. No additional fees apply to switching the exam mode. If the school offers these subjects as second-semester courses, the coordinator can submit a new order for these exams in the spring, but no later than March 15.

After March 15: We understand that circumstances can cause changes to your order after the March 15 deadline. The AP coordinator can make changes as needed without having to call AP Services. Note: Switches back to "Std-Paper" may go into an approval queue to confirm that the paper exam can be shipped to the school by the exam date.
