Advanced Placement (AP) Exams are offered to students after completing college level coursework here at Stevenson High School. Beginning last school year, CollegeBoard introduced new processes and resources for AP students. Some of these changes include students having access to additional resources and tools to help them prepare for AP Exams through their CollegeBoard account.
AP Exams will be offered at Stevenson from May 2nd - May 13th, 2022. The dates and times for each exam can be found HERE. Please plan to be in school on the day of your exam, as late exams will not be offered.

AP Exam Policies & Guidelines
All AP students deserve a fair and uniform testing experience, whether they are taking the exam in Michigan, California, or China. To make sure this happens, College Board requires exam takers to follow the AP Exam Policies & Guidelines posted on their website.
On exam day, you will have to sign your answer sheet indicating that you have read and agree to follow all the test security and administration policies and procedures outlined online. You will also need to sign the covers of your multiple-choice and free-response booklets, affirming statements related to the security of the exam. It is the student's responsibility to review the AP Exam Policies & Guidelines on the College Board website before taking an AP Exam.
Total Registration will manage our online AP registration this year to allow students and parents the convenience of paying for AP exams online. During the registration process, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We understand 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 and accurate information is entered. It is extremely important to fill out information accurately and proofread before submitting your registration.
Some areas that have caused problems in the past:
- A student's legal name should be used. Also, sometimes the parent has filled out the registration and used his/her name instead of the student’s name.
- Selecting the correct test is vital. Test orders are based on the registration; therefore, any mistakes made by the student or parent may result in not having materials available on the day of the exam. Here are some common mistakes:
Calculus AB vs. Calculus BC
Macroeconomics vs. Microeconomics
Payment must be made through the Total Registration website via credit or debit card. You may also mail a check or money order to Total Registration after completing the registration process online.

UPDATE! The State of Michigan will use federal and state funding again this year to reduce the exam fee for students who are eligible for a College Board fee reduction. Any student who qualifies for the free or reduced lunch program is eligible to pay a reduced fee of $5 per AP exam. When answering this question on the registration form, only answer "yes" if you qualify and have been approved for the free or reduced lunch program. After you submit your registration, your free or reduced lunch status will be verified and you will then be able to pay for your exams online.
During the registration process, students are asked if they are eligible for College Board accommodations. A student should only answer “yes” if he/she has been officially approved for accommodations. Just because a student receives accommodations at school does not mean he/she will automatically receive accommodations for AP testing. To use accommodations on AP exams, students must request and be approved for accommodations by College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) before testing. The deadline for submitting accommodations requests is January 18, 2022. Parents should begin that process early in the school year so there are no delays or problems, and so that we can plan for additional testing space and proctors if needed. Please contact Stevenson's SSD Coordinator, Christine Rice, at email@example.com for more information.
Sending Scores to Colleges
Check with potential colleges to know their policies regarding AP credit. Many times students find out their college does not award credit for AP exams, and they end up canceling and losing money. This information should be investigated before registering for an AP exam.
