College Board Codes are used for:

  • College applications
  • Financial aid applications
  • Test registration

Please provide this resource to AP students regarding how to set up a MY AP account and register for the AP Exam.

Fee Waivers

Low-income students qualify for AP, SAT and ACT fee waivers and/or reductions. If you believe your student qualifies for an AP, SAT or ACT fee waiver, please contact your counselor when your student is ready to register for a test. Students will need updated household income information (NSLP form) in Pathways in order to qualify for a fee waiver.

Students who qualify for a fee waiver are also eligible for college application fee waivers. For more information on college application fee waivers, please review the College Board FAQs. Not every school accepts fee waivers, students can find a comprehensive list of colleges that accept fee waivers on the College Board site.

Students who wish to apply to 4-year colleges or universities will need to complete a standardized exam (SAT or ACT). Most colleges or universities will accept either score; however, your student should double check with the college admissions office to see if there is a preference.

The SAT and ACT will cover similar topics. The main differences between the two standardized tests are:

  • The ACT includes a science section.
  • The SAT includes a math section that does not permit the use of a calculator.

For a comprehensive comparison of the two tests, please review this Princeton Review resource.
