2019 AP Exam Registration

Dear Parent and AP Student:

Registration for the Advanced Placement Exams will take place Monday, November 5, 2018 - Sunday, March 3, 2019.

Exams: $94/exam Fee Waiver Cost: $10/exam

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Mission Vista High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. 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 Mission Vista High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. 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 student(s) for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. If you decide to pay by check, instead of credit or debit card, the payment MUST be received by Total Registration by March 3, 2019.

This year each AP exam costs $94.00. Mission Vista High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Online Exam registration will begin on Monday, November 5, 2018 at 7:00 AM and end on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit total registration.net to register .

With rising exam fees, it is understandable that some students may be struggling to pay for their exams. Your family might be eligible for a fee waiver. A fee waiver allows a student to pay only $10.00 for each exam. The state has guidelines to see if families qualify. Attached to this letter, you will find the Student Eligibility Verification form that must be signed and a sample letter which states that your household income meets the state guidelines. Please do the following for fee qualification:

  1. A signed Student Eligibility Verification Form AND
  2. If you qualify and are receiving free or reduced lunch please have the cafeteria sign your papers stating your financial status and sign the parent statement confirming your financial standing.
  3. If you are not receiving free or reduced lunch, please attach:
    1. A copy of your most recent tax return OR
    2. A pay stub
      1. with a letter stating that your household income does not exceed 185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Monday, November 5, 2019 at 7:00 AM - Registration Begins
  • Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 11:59 PM - Registration Ends
  • Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 11:59 PM - Registrations that have not been paid for will be cancelled and exams will not be ordered.
  • Refunds will not be given after Sunday, March 3, 2019.

Please contact Mrs Zein Stearman, zeinsleiman-stearman@vistausd.org , if you would like to register for an exam not listed or have any questions.

  • Please adhere to the deadline of Monday, March 3, 2019. MVHS is obligated to meet College Board deadlines, and so we cannot extend the deadline. Also, please understand that I cannot offer refunds if students register in error or change their minds about exams. AP charges Mission Vista High School a fee each time a correction or change is made after the deadline. Although it may be possible to make changes to your registration, it may cost you additional funds.
  • Please email me if you have any questions. I would be happy to help you in any way I can.

*Some colleges and universities use Social Security numbers as student identifiers when assigning AP credit or advanced placement for qualifying AP scores. While the College Board does not require students to provide their Social Security number, they may want to check with the college or university where they are sending scores to see if they prefer for students to provide a Social Security number on their AP Exam answer sheet.
