AP Testing 2019

  • Attention AP students:  By now, you should have received 2 documents regarding AP testing in your AP class/es.  If you were only in an AP class semester 1, you received an email from Mrs. Wiles, AP Coordinator, to pick up your materials in counseling. If you didn’t get materials, first, ask one of your AP teachers for the materials.  If they don’t have them, go to counseling and ask Mrs. Cahill, counseling secretary, and she will get you what you need. Or, they can be found below.

Document #2:

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Shawnee Mission East HS desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2019 AP exams, students at Shawnee Mission East HS will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $100.00. Shawnee Mission East HS desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Melissa Wiles at melissawiles@smsd.org, in the Counseling Office to learn more.

Online Exam registration will begin on Fri, Feb 1, 2019 at 6:00 AM and end on Mon, Feb 25, 2019 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students should click on the link provide on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/172473 to register. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know 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.

Shawnee Mission East HS is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.

For more information or if you have questions, contact AP Coordinator Melissa Wiles.
