2020-2021 AP EXAMS

The 2021 AP Exams will be administered between May 3 - May 14, 2021.  The exact date and time of each exam can be found on the AP section of College Board website. Santa Susana High School does not register students for exams or take payment.  Ordering and payment will be done completely through the online services, Total Registration and through the student’s College Board account.

This year each AP exam costs $95.00.  There is a multi-step process to ordering AP Exams and all steps must be completed before exams can be ordered.

Step 1:Prior to Registration: Create a College Board Account

  • All students need to have a College Board account in order to register for AP exams.
  • Students should go to and click on the Sign-Up button to create an account.
  • This account should be created by the student. This account will follow you after your high school career.
  • If you already have a College Board account, ensure that you can log-in successfully.

Step 2: Join AP Classes in College Board

  • College Board requires that each student joins their AP classes on the College Board website 
  • All students will join all of their AP Classes using the appropriate Join Codes provided to them by their teacher and/or through an email sent by Mrs. Spurbeck-Boian.
  • This must be completed by October 2nd, 2020. Students cannot join their classes without their Join Codes.

Step 3: Sign up for AP Classes in Total Registration and Pay for Exams

  • Total Registration will open on September 8th, 2020. ALL AP students must go to Total Registration and sign up for all of their AP classes. This is how they will get their Join Codes to join all of their courses on the College Board website (required).
  • Begin the process by registering at Total Registration. If you have registered for an AP exam in the past, please use the same account to register this year.
  • Here you will indicate both the AP courses you are taking this year and the exams you wish to take. You will receive your join codes and directions to complete the second required step.
  • Any exam fees will be paid online so be sure to have a debit card or credit card available before beginning registration.
