College Board Home  AP Test Registration

Dear Parent and AP Student:


Registration for the Advanced Placement Exams will take place:

 Fall Registration- Monday, September 2, 2019 - Friday, November 1, 2019 (Fall classes only) 

Spring Registration - Monday, January 20, 2020 - Friday, February 28, 2020 (Spring classes only) 

Late registration, no shows, or cancelled exams will incur a $40 fee per College Board

 

Exams: $94/exam       Fee Waiver Cost: $15/exam     Late Fee or Cancelled: $40/exam 


Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Mission Vista High School encourages students to take the AP exams for the AP courses in which they are enrolled.  Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

Registering for Exams:  A 2-part Process

For the 2020 AP exams, students at Mission Vista High School will be registering online making payments through Total Registration and ordering exams through College Board. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

Before we can order AP exams all students must "enroll" their AP exams with the College Board. At the end of the registration process on Total Registration, students will be provided with information and a link to complete their enrollment process. Please complete this final step right after registering and making payment to guarantee AP exam(s) will be ordered.  

Fee Waivers

This year each AP exam costs $94.00. 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 $15.00 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: a. A copy of your most recent tax return OR b. A  pay stub  i. with a letter stating that your household income does not exceed 185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines 

Registrations that are not paid by 11:59 AM, Monday, Nov 4, 2019 will incur a $40 late fee.

Making Payments

In order to make payments for AP tests, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/054347 to register. To complete payment, students must answer all of the required questions. Payment is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. Registration is not complete until students have updated their College Board accounts to order the exam.  Please know that payment does not ensure that the test will be ordered as it is done separately through College Board.  

We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Mission Vista High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment. Please contact Mrs Zein Stearman, zeinsleiman-stearman@vistausd.org , if you would like to register for an exam that is not listed or have any questions.

  • Please adhere to the deadlines listed above as  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 $40 each time a correction or change is made after the deadline resulting in an extra fee for the student.  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.
