For most students, taking an AP Exam serves as the natural culmination of their AP course experience. Advanced Placement courses prepare students for a comprehensive College Board exam given in May 2024. Students are required to register through College Board and Total Registration for all AP exams. Students will register for College Board in class with their AP teachers. Students will pay for their exams through Total Registration. 
AP Registration is a two-part process.  Students MUST complete BOTH steps to be registered.  Registration will open on September 5, 2023.
The regular fee period for AP Testing Registration runs through Nov 3, 2023. Students may continue to register through March 5th, 2024 but will be charged a non-refundable $40 late fee per exam by The College Board. 
AP Registration Process Breakdown
  • STEP ONE: Student registers through College Board by using the “join code” provided by their teacher.   Registering through College Board simply populates students’ exam information into College Board and gives the student access to AP classroom resources.
  • STEP TWO: Complete registration by paying through Total Registration. We have used this same system in the past.  Until students pay for their exams, they are NOT fully registered!  Please login to Total Registration and continue the registration process. If you have used this site before, use your same email! Click here for Total Registration.
Exam Fee: $105/exam
If you registered and wish to cancel an exam, you may do so by logging into your Total Registration account and requesting the cancelation. Exams cancelled prior to Nov 3rd will receive a full refund. Any exam cancelled after this date will be charged a $40 cancellation fee per exam by The College Board. NO refunds will be given after March 5, 2024.
