How to register for AP exams independently?

Due to some scheduling issues at school, I need to register for an AP exam on my own. Has anyone done this before? How did you go about registering and paying for it without your school's help?

Hey there! No worries, registering for an AP exam independently isn't too complicated. You'll need to find another school in your area that administers AP exams to outside students. Start by contacting the AP Services for Students number (888-225-5427) or emailing apstudents@info.collegeboard.org no later than March 1. They typically help students like you find a nearby school that administers the AP exams. Once you've located a school, reach out to the AP Coordinator there to ask if they're willing to administer the exam for an out-of-school candidate.

Keep in mind that some schools might charge a higher fee to cover additional administrative costs. As for payment, the coordinator at the hosting school can guide you through their process. Just make sure to do this well in advance, because it can sometimes take a bit of legwork. Good luck with your exams!
