Register For AP Exams

AP Exam Registration Is Now Open

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Northwood High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. For the 2018 AP exams, students at Northwood High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. This year each AP exam costs $98.00.

Online Exam registration began on Monday, January 29, 2018 and it will end on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 12:01 AM. In order to register, students should click on the link provide on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/210947 to register. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. This year Total Registration will print the students’ answer sheets, so it is vital that registration information is correct. Northwood 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.

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Thu, Mar 1, 2018 at 12:01 AM - Registrations and payments after this date will incur a $15 late fee per registration.
  • Wed, Mar 7, 2018 at 12:01 AM - Registration Ends
  • Mon, Mar 10, 2018 at 12:01 AM - Registrations that have not been paid for will become student obligations that must be paid for students to participate in school functions.
