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.

Total Registration's service is priceless. The time it saves and the stress it relieves is worth its weight in gold. We use TR for PSAT and AP, and look forward to using it for IB registration in 2015. The ease of the TR site and support team really makes registration, correspondence, reports, accounting, and the entire process seamless.
We Love 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.
As a first year high school testing coordinator, at a fairly large school, I knew nothing about AP. A fellow coordinator had used Total Registration and encouraged me to do the same. I loved the ease of it and the reports I could run to help me with ordering, with free/reduced lunch waivers, counts, and communication with those registered. The kids could register at their convenience and parents could pay online. I hate to think of the record keeping I would have to do had I not used TR. It was a life saver.
As the AP Coordinator of a large suburban high school, I was saved this year by Total Registration. With budget cuts to our district (as many of yours), the sole responsibility for registering, administering, and paying for AP exams falls to me. In past years, I had to create and receive the registrations, write receipts by hand, create an Excel spreadsheet, and triple check that the exam order was correct. Completing all of the above and more, Total Registration gave me time to devote to other duties and made my life less stressful at the busiest time of year in school buildings. Thank you, TR!
Total Registration is a tremendously useful service that helps eliminate the stress of ordering AP exams. The site is easy to navigate, user-friendly, and cost-efficient. It helps to centralize the ordering process in addition to providing useful tools, such as the mandatory seating charts required for AP exams. I strongly recommend Total Registration, particularly for schools with high volume exams.
