This memo contains important information regarding AP Exam Registration.  Registering for the exam is separate from taking the class, requires action, and payment.

Taking the Advanced Placement exam(s) is an optional part of all AP courses.  Exams are administered at school sometime during the two week testing window in May set forth by the College Board.  Specific exam dates are included on the registration site. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2019 AP exams, students at Tartan High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any device with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $50.00. Tartan High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Students who are enrolled in the schools free or reduced price lunch program are eligible for a reduced rate of $10/exam.  To be considered, students must indicate on the registration that they receive free or reduced priced lunch. Exam registration will be paused until the program verifies eligibility and the account will be notified when the exam registration can be completed.  This may take up to 2 business day.

Online Exam registration will begin on Wed, Feb 6, 2019 at 12:01 AM and end on Wed, Feb 27, 2019 at 11:59 PM. This registration window is firm and specific to our school.  In order to register, students should visit to register.  

  • If you have previously registered for an exam using Total Registration, login to your existing account.

  • If you have not taken an AP exam before, you will need to create an account.

  • 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.

  • It is suggested that you have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. It is also possible to mail payment to Total Registration, but Tartan High will not collect payment.  You must pay Total Registration by credit card, debit card, or mail payment directly to them (billing address available in your account).  

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Wed, Feb 6, 2019 at 12:01 AM - Registration Begins
