Shadow Creek High School's AP Policy


                                                  ALVIN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT



Parents/Guardians and students,

As Alvin ISD grows each year, so does our Advanced Placement Program.  Thousands of AP tests are administered every year, and to make the process run smoothly, our district uses Total Registration.  This company helps keep AP test registration streamlined, as registration and payment are both done at this site.  In an effort to be transparent with our AP testing procedures, there are several dates and information we would like to share with you.  

  • Dates:
    • August 16, 2018 - registration for AP tests begins on the Total Registration website.  All registration for AP exams MUST be done through Total Registration (NOT through College Board).
    • November 15, 2018 - Late registration begins for all full year and fall semester courses.  $40 late fee per exam will be assessed.
    • March 1, 2019 - Last day to pay for AP exams. 
  • Payments:
    • Parents/guardians/students make payments for AP exams through Total Registration using a credit or debit card. 
    • Partial payments may be made. Minimum payment is $30 and will incur a $2.75 non-refundable processing fee for each partial payment.
    • Payment by check or money order is not recommended, and Alvin ISD is not responsible for lost or late payments. 
    • Check or money order payments are sent to Total Registration by the registrant, not by the campus, and must be received by March 3, 2018.
    • Students that cancel exams after March 1, 2019 or do NOT use the tests they order will be charged a $40.00 unused test fee imposed by College Board.
  • Shadow Creek High School Campus Information:
    • Arrival time for testing is 7:20 am for morning exams.  Arriving late will prevent a student from testing, and the student will be charged the $40.00 unused test fee.
    • Transportation:  Afternoon AP exams often run past the regular dismissal time causing students to miss the bus.  Please make alternate transportation arrangements if you are taking an afternoon exam.
    • Lunch procedures for AP testers are as follows:
      • Morning Exams - students will attend either B or C lunch depending on their 5th period class.
      • Afternoon Exams - students will eat A lunch.
