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.

We have used Total Registration for the past two years at Doherty High School here in the Springs. Our process this year was even more streamlined than last year thanks to TR and their wonderful staff. Those of us who oversee the testing at Doherty have saved COUNTLESS hours of work through the use of your service. As always, I appreciate the quick responses that I receive from either Mike personally or your support staff when we have a question.
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.
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.
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!
