AP Exam Registration

All students enrolled in an AP course must register through a two-step process.

Step 1: Begin the process by registering at www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/361110. Here, students will indicate both the AP course(s) they are taking this year and the exams they wish to take (students may edit their decision to take the exam at any time prior to established deadlines). They will receive their join codes and directions to complete the second required step. Any exam fees will be paid online, so be sure to have a debit card or credit card available before beginning registration. Students can also select to create an invoice to pay later if needed.

Note: Students that registered using Total Registration last year do not need to create a new account. The log-in information will be the same log-in used last year. New AP students will need to create a Total Registration account.


Step 2: Use the join codes provided at the completion of Step 1 to enroll the student’s AP courses and exams in the College Board’s system (AP Classroom).


All students enrolled in AP courses must complete both steps. Information regarding Advanced Placement will be included regularly in the Principal’s Weekly and on this webpage.
