Greetings TR Users and Future Users,
Thank you to everyone that forwarded Total Registration (TR) the recent College Board (CB) email regarding 3rd Parties. We are very thankful that our clients continue to keep us in the loop.
The CB email saddens us, as it appears to be intentionally cultivating fear regarding our process of printing the student data on the AP* answer sheet. One might even surmise that it is intended to discourage schools from using TR’s services. Sadness aside, we must factually address several concerns we have regarding the communication you received. Here’s the short response: Be assured, TR will accurately print student data on answer sheets in a timely manner and will in no way interfere with CB ability to process scores because CB can scan “prefilled” sheets. If you need more details to feel comfortable with this response, read on.

This was my second year as the AP Coordinator and I love Total Registration! I would not have made it through my first year without using TR, and I found I needed it just as much this year. Everything works—the student registration is so easy, Total Registration collects all the money and our business office loves that part! All of the reports are very helpful, including room rosters and seating charts to print. TR also sends reminders about due dates, like when to order the tests! Everything to keep me on track. The service also emails and texts the students and parents their exam schedules as a reminder. Customer service is excellent, I always hear back within an hour or so to get answers to my questions, and they are always trying to make things easier for us. I will only run my AP exams with Total Registration!
I have used Total Registration for three years now to manage our AP exams and I honestly can't imagine doing it any other way. I find that my questions are answered very quickly and the support team is superb. It truly helps organize the many details one incurs when dealing with multiple exams and many students.
Our school used Total Registration for the first time this year, based upon several conversations I had as AP Coordinator with Mike Elings, General Manager. I was able to see how the registration process worked and thought that it would be worth our time trying this out. In the past, I have had students pay at our school site, and there were errors in what they were paying for. Due to the volume of tests that our students take, accuracy is important. I particularly liked that they could select what they wanted to pay for and that teachers could check the rosters of who had paid. In addition, I was able to state our school policies easily so that there were no errors. I also liked that they had to supply a working e-mail address for both student and parent (our school's e-mails that we have on file are sometimes wrong), so if I needed to contact them, I could easily.
We will definitely be using Total Registration in the future for AP exam registration!
Dee and I would just like to thank you for a wonderful website. We just talked and we both agree that this has made registering for the AP and collecting money so easy. Everything is on the website that we need and you have worked so well with us throughout the past couple of months. We just wish that this would have been done years ago. You are the best.
I can't tell you how happy we have been with your product. Initially I was not interested in online registration for AP but your product made it do easy! We can't wait for the new pre-printing of the student info feature!
