Dear Tam Students and Parents:
We hope that all are doing well and having a good start to the school year! If you are currently taking an AP class, it is time to register for the 2024 College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) exams. Exam registration opens Monday, October 9th and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 20, 2023. Students enrolled in an Advanced Placement class at Tam High may take the exam. Students are encouraged to consult with their AP teacher to determine their readiness for the exam. Taking the AP exam is not required.
The AP exams provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of materials covered in AP classes and, depending upon results and individual university policy, possibly earn college credit. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the catalogs of colleges of interest in order to determine each college’s policy with regard to AP exams. If students and parents are curious to find out which colleges and universities offer credit or placement for AP Scores, please use this tool created by College Board - AP Credit Policy Search.
Registering for your AP exams is a two-step process. Failure to complete both steps will result in you not being able to take the exam. Please read this communication in its entirety and follow the steps closely. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. If you do not intend to take the exam, please go to http://myap.collegeboard.com/ and indicate “no” for “order exam” for each AP course.
We want every student to be able to take their AP exams. Students with acute financial need can apply for financial aid through the registration site. Financial aid requests must be submitted by October 20th. Please contact the Assistant Principal’s Office for more information.
1st step: Paying for the exam
Go to www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/051975. Log in and follow the specific instructions. Registration is not complete until you are directed to the payment confirmation page that is provided at the end. If you have not already joined your AP class on AP classroom, you will receive the join code after payment to use for step 2.
2nd step: College Board Registration (This step may already be completed in your AP Class)
Login to http://myap.collegeboard.com/ and enter the “Join Code” for your courses and select “Yes” indicating that you are taking the exam. You may have already joined during your AP class. Here are some helpful hints for setting up your account or verifying the information if you already have an account:
The students must have their own e-mail address associated with their account. This should not be their school email address, as it is deactivated after graduation. If you already have an account, please check this and update it if necessary.
If you have issues with your account, please contact the College Board. The High Schools are not linked to them at all, so we are not able to assist with login issues.
Please be sure you keep track of your College Board login information.
Online Registration begins Monday, October 9th, and will end on Friday, October 20th at 11:59 p.m. This year each AP exam costs $106.00. Any orders received after October 20th will incur a late fee. No orders will be accepted after November 14, 2023.
Here are the important dates for the registration process.
Students with testing accommodations should confirm they qualify for accommodations with the College Board. Only students who have been pre-approved by the College Board are eligible for extended time and other testing accommodations.
Additional information on AP policies, procedures, and a description of each of the AP exams is provided at apstudents.collegeboard.org. The 2024 AP Exams will be administered at school from May 6th thru May 17th.
If you have any conflicts with test schedules, contact the Assistant Principals' Office, 415-380-3512. There are VERY LIMITED circumstances under which the College Board will approve a student for an alternative late testing date. If approved, an additional $50 late testing fee may apply.
Contact the Assistant Principal’s office for any questions regarding Advanced Placement exams, (415) 380-3512 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
