Advanced Placement Exams




Registration for Advanced Placement exams opens Sept. 2nd and the deadline this year for regular pricing is Nov. 14th, 2023. Please be aware that these are end-of-year exams for students who are already enrolled in AP courses or students who choose to self-study, not “placement” exams for next year.


Once you have registered with the College Board using the Join Code(s) provided by your teacher(s), you will then visit our Total Registration site to make payment. Standard fees are $110 ($0 for CVHS students demonstrating financial need) Personal email should be used for both profiles as school email may block notifications.


For CVHS students wishing to take exams without being enrolled in an AP course, you may begin by making payment in the Total Registration system and receive a Join Code for completing your registration at


Students registering after Nov. 14th, 2023 and before March 4th,  2024 will pay a $40 fee for late registration. 


Exam registration is not complete until you have registered with the College Board and made payment through Total Registration (note: CVHS students with proof of financial need will pay $0, but still need to register on Total Registration)


The College Board has several online resources, including daily video lessons, to support students in preparing for the exams at home. Click here to see what is available.
