All registrations must be completed online using the following links based on the student’s school:
Total Registration (the company who does our online AP registration) is offering a new service – pre-printing of the student answer sheets, which will allow us to eliminate the pre-administration (Orientation) sessions that we have had to do in past years. This will eliminate the need to pull students from classes to complete the pre-bubbling information. Students will supply all that demographic and personal information when they register online for the AP test(s) they are taking.
To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered and accurate information is entered.
Since answer sheets will be pre-printed based on the information provided by the student (or parent) when completing the online registration, it is extremely important to fill out information accurately and proofread before submitting your registration.
Once the answer sheets are printed, the information cannot be erased (corrected).
Some areas that have caused problems in the past:
- Student’s legal name (no nicknames) should be used
Sometimes the parent has filled out the registration and used his/her name instead of the student’s name.
- Selecting the correct test
Test orders are based on the registration ; therefore, any mistakes made by the student or parent may result in not having a test available for the student, so be sure to select the correct test when registering.
English Language vs. English Literature
Computer Science A vs. Computer Science Principles
Calculus AB vs. Calculus BC
- Students who are dual-enrolled
Students must register only on the site for his/her “home” school, even if he/she is taking a particular AP class at one of the other high schools or online.
- Students eligible for accommodations
When completing the registration, you are asked if you are eligible for College Board accommodations. A student should only answer “yes” if he/she has been officially approved for accommodations. Just because a student receives any accommodations at school does not mean he will automatically receive accommodations for AP testing. To use accommodations on AP exams, students must request and receive approval for accommodations from College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) before testing. The deadline for submitting accommodations requests is February 23, 2018. Parents should begin that process with the student’s teacher consultant and/or counselor early in the school year, so that there are no delays or problems and so that we can plan for additional testing space and proctors.
- Students requesting fee waivers
When answering this question on the registration form, only answer “yes” if you qualify and have been approved for free or reduced lunch.
- Sending scores to a college
Check with potential colleges to know their policies regarding AP credit. Many times students find out the college does not give AP credit, and they end up losing money. This information should be investigated before even registering for a test.
Because we are eliminating the pre-bubbling (Orientation) sessions, we won’t have a “face-to-face” meeting with the students to go over all the other rules (no cell phones), requirements ( dates, places, arrival times), etc. The information will be posted on the registration site under “Additional Documents to Read and/or Print”. There will be three documents:
- 2018 Test Day Reminders
- Directions to EMU Student Center
- 2018 AP Testing Schedule.
It is up to students and parents to carefully review all that information and print a copy if needed. The student is still responsible for any information we have posted, even though he has not been personally reminded.
Please contact Mrs. Joyce Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have any questions.
