Since 2007, Total Registration (TR) has been the preferred AP Exam Fee Collection Provider for over 1000 schools. TR does substantially more than collect students' AP exam payments. TR's system is designed to handle the myriad of issues that are unique to AP Exams: A plethora of fee calculations, management of waivers and scholarships, late fees, cancellation fees, refunds, etc. In addition to payment processing TR provides:
Reconciling students' exam registrations to students' payments is the key to reducing the school's financial liability.
AP coordinators upload the Student Roster data file from the College Board's Enrollment System into TR. TR will automatically match the exams enrolled with the College Board to the registrations/payments made in TR. Reconciliation ensures that all the tests the school is ordering have been paid for by each student. This reconciliation process saves staff countless hours by removing the need to match students between two systems exam-by-exam, name-by-name.
Every school has a dedicated registration/payment site with a unique URL.
TR has an extensive suite of communications tools all available at the click of a button:
TR provides quick support to coordinators, teachers, students and parents through our online help center, Support.TotalRegistration.net. Users can search for an instant answer to their question in our online help center as well as submit a support ticket.
TR mails checks to schools/districts for the payments collected. Schools select how often they are to receive checks and real-time access reports of student payments, refunds, fees, etc. included in each payment, providing complete financial transparency.
TR can handle a large variety of fee calculations. Schools have full control over their exam fees, waivers, late fees, and cancellation fees, as well as their particular deadlines. Some of the Fee Calculation options available are:
Schools can allow families to make partial payments. When schools allow partial payments, they have control over the minimum allowable payment as well as deadlines for the initial payment and final payment.
Families have two options for paying their AP exam fees:
All information is collected and transferred through a secure, SSL protected connection. TR does not retain any sensitive cardholder information such as card number, expiration date, security code.
