• 2021 AP Exams

    The 2021 Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations will take place May 3, 2021 through May 14, 2021. AP Exams provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of materials covered in AP courses and, depending upon the exam results and individual university’s policies, possibly earn college credit or placement.

    If students and parents are curious about which colleges and universities offer credit or placement for AP scores, please use this tool created by College Board.

    Enrolling In AP Class Sections and Purchasing AP Exams

    While students will still be taking their AP Exams in May, they will need to enroll in their AP Class Sections and purchase their AP Exams early in the fall semester.  Please note that enrolling in AP Class Sections and purchasing AP Exams are two different processes.

    Enrolling in AP Class Sections 

    1. Using unique Join Codes that have been distributed by AP teachers, ALL students taking one or more AP Courses at Redwood HS must enroll in their AP Class Sections through the College Board website.

    2. Students should only use the unique Join Codes that their teacher provides for their AP Class Section.

    3. Once a student has joined their correct AP Class Section, they will be asked for some demographic information and if they plan on taking the AP Exam in the spring. If a student plans on taking the AP Exam in the spring, they must choose "Yes".  By doing so, the College Board will generate a Student ID Label that will be used on their AP Exam.


    Things To Keep In Mind About the College Board Account 

    1. Students who have created a College Board account for the PSAT/SAT should use the same username and password for the AP account.  They should not have two different College Board accounts.

    2. Students who need to create an account or verify that they have an account, please access collegeboard.org

    3. Students must have their own email address associated with their College Board Account.  By doing so, if they forget their login information, they can recover it easily. This email address should be one that is current and checked often to ensure that the students receive all comminucations in a timely manner.

    4. Students should keep their username and password in a place they can access easily and quickly, perhaps on their phones.  They will be needing this information numerous times throughout the year.

    Financial Assistance

    Redwood High School students who have a verifiable financial need are eligible for financial assistance for their AP Exams. Students will be able to request financial assistance when they fill out their purchase information through Total Registration.

    Testing Conflicts

    If there are conflicts with the AP Exam schedule, please contact Tanya Jaspering in room 107 via email (tjaspering@tamdistrict.org) or phone (415.945.3622) before October 30, 2021 at 4:00 PM. There are VERY LIMITED circumstances under which College Board or Redwood High School will approve a student for a late testing date. Students cannot take two exams at the same time and Redwood High School will decide which exam a student will take first and which exam will be taken during the late testing window. This year’s late testing window, as set by College Board, is Tuesday, May 18, 2021 through Friday, May 21, 2021.

    Testing With Accommodations

    Students who currently have an IEP or 504 Plan with approved testing accommodations must see their school counselor to confirm that they have been approved for testing accommodations on their AP Exams. Only students who have been approved by College Board are eligible to receive testing accommodations on their AP Exam(s). For those students who have already been approved by College Board, you do not need to reapply. During the purchasing process, families will be able to enter the College Board provided SSD # for their accommodations.

    The last day to submit accommodations requests to College Board is January 15, 2021.

    Purchasing The AP Exams

    Students at Redwood High School will purchase their AP Exams online. This purchasing process will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. If access to the internet is a challenge, please contact Tanya Jaspering in room 107 via email (tjaspering@tamdistrict.org) or phone (415.945.3622).

    AP Exam purchasing is processed through Total Registration. The website will be available beginning on Friday, October 1, 2020.

    To complete the purchasing process, students must answer all of the required questions. AP Exam purchases are not complete until students have printed the PDF of the confirmation page that is provided at the end of the transaction. We strongly recommend that both parents/guardians and students are present while purchasing the exams to ensure that the correct exams are purchased.

    Redwood High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of purchase. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card before beginning the purchase process.

    Families that do not have the ability to pay online will mail their payments directly to Total Registration. Please follow the directions on the payment stub that is printed at the time of registration to be mailed along with a check, cashier’s check or money order. Total Registration will receive and record these payments and email the family a confirmation showing the recorded payment. All payments must be received by November 2.

    Please be sure to allow sufficient mailing time for your payment to reach Total Registration’s offices.

    Families will mail their payment (payable to Total Registration, LLC) with their payment stub to:

    Total Registration, LLC

    PO Box 398

    It is important that all checks include the Reference Number in the memo of the check. If a Payment Stub has not been printed, please enclose a copy of your confirmation.
