What Our Clients Say
Total Registration’s service is priceless. The time it saves and the stress it relieves is worth its weight in gold. We use TR for PSAT and AP, and look forward to using it for IB registration in 2015. The ease of the TR site and support team really makes…. registration, correspondence, reports, accounting, and the entire process seamless.
We Love Total Registration!
Lori Klotz - Harrison High School - Farmington Hills, MI
As a first year high school testing coordinator, at a fairly large school, I knew nothing about AP. A fellow coordinator had used Total Registration and encouraged me to do the same. I loved the ease of it and the reports I could run to help me with ordering, with free/reduced lunch waivers, counts, and communication with those registered. The kids could register at their convenience and parents could pay online. I hate to think of the record keeping I would have to do had I not used TR. It was a life saver.
Lori Hart - Denton High School - Denton, TX
Our school used Total Registration for the first time this year, based upon several conversations I had as AP Coordinator with Mike Elings, General Manager. I was able to see how the registration process worked and thought that it would be worth our time trying this out. In the past, I have had students pay at our school site, and there were errors in what they were paying for. Due to the volume of tests that our students take, accuracy is important. I particularly liked that they could select what they wanted to pay for and that teachers could check the rosters of who had paid. In addition, I was able to state our school policies easily so that there were no errors. I also liked that they had to supply a working e-mail address for both student and parent (our school's e-mails that we have on file are sometimes wrong), so if I needed to contact them, I could easily.
We will definitely be using Total Registration in the future for AP exam registration!
Caroline Rubio - Dublin High School - Dublin, CA
I had two students approach me this week (exams start Monday) trying to tell me they registered when they didn't. I love Total Registration. I have a print-out to show students who began the registration process but who didn't complete it as well as a report of all students who registered and how they paid (check number, online transaction, or fee waiver). I have all the proof I need. No human error on our end. You make ordering and payment and report-printing a breeze. You provide class rosters as well as summary reports. This is so much easier than doing it in-house at our school. Thank you!!!
Janet Wilson - Eugene Ashley High School - Wilmington, NC
We increased our AP exam administration by 82% this year. I believe this is due to the communication possible throughTotal Registration.
Liza Sejkora - Hgiley High School - Higley, AZ
I loved the ease of the system from the beginning to the end. The ease of registering online was great. The email feature to be able to contact students/parents was extremely useful. I hope that we can use online payment feature next year. Thanks so much!
Shannon O'Brien - Palatine High School, Palatine, IL
I can’t imagine doing the registration any other way now. It was scary for my anal self to “jump on board” and give up some control, but I have now done it for 2 years and will never go back. The biggest thing was not having to handle the money in house. Out of 485 exams, 123 were fee waiver students where some of those students have limited access to credit cards. The mail in system for those students was very easy and all of the students were serviced easily. Our bookkeeper was very happy to not have a ton of students coming in separately to pay! It also helped us stick to deadlines!
Also, at Mike’s suggestion, I used a cheap bar code scanner to scan each student’s AP label into the Excel database that I had and it was very easy and a huge time saver. I used to have someone read each AP number to
Amy Winslow - West Aurora High School, Aurora, IL
We have used Total Registration for the past two years at Doherty High School here in the Springs. Our process this year was even more streamlined than last year thanks to TR and their wonderful staff. Those of us who oversee the testing at Doherty have saved COUNTLESS hours of work through the use of your service. As always, I appreciate the quick responses that I receive from either Mike personally or your support staff when we have a question.
Sue Keller - Doherty High School, Colorado Springs, CO
I run very tight guidelines with regard to AP testing, sign up, etc. This program took 100% of the sign up out of the hands of my administrative assistant. Her time was saved. Because we decided to do this so late, I had all the forms prepared/copied/etc. so I hope next year that this will be less time consuming. The part I really loved was that parents didn't try to get me to waive the late fee or make any monetary adjustments. All via the web. I loved it!
Joan Fee - Normal Community High School, Normal, IL
I have used Total Registration for three years now to manage our AP exams and I honestly can’t imagine doing it any other way. I find that my questions are answered very quickly and the support team is superb. It truly helps organize the many details one incurs when dealing with multiple exams and many students.
Lisa Neid - Carroll Senior High School, Southlake , TX
Total Registration has been a HUGE time-saver for us. This is my 6th year as the AP Coordinator for our school and by far the best registration/exam administration we've had, thanks to TR.
Valerie Tucker - Pleasant Valley High School, Bettendorf. IA
I can't imagine why anyone would want to do AP Registration in-house. The time saved was invaluable! Not having to handle payments was wonderful! Can't say enough good things!
Deb Alexander - Fossil Ridge High School, Fort Collins, CO
As the AP Coordinator of a large suburban high school, I was saved this year by Total Registration. With budget cuts to our district (as many of yours), the sole responsibility for registering, administering, and paying for AP exams falls to me. In past years, I had to create and receive the registrations, write receipts by hand, create an Excel spreadsheet, and triple check that the exam order was correct. Completing all of the above and more, Total Registration gave me time to devote to other duties and made my life less stressful at the busiest time of year in school buildings. Thank you, TR - I will never return to the “dark side” of AP exam registration!
Mimi Dyer - Kennesaw Mountain High School, Kennesaw, GA
Total Registration is so impressive. Ordering was simplified, and I am certain our behind-the-scenes test process will be just as smooth.
THANK YOU...in advance!
Maureen Meyer - Barrington High School - Barrington, IL
I just have to say after I’ve muddled through this first year, this rocks!! I would recommend it to any school no matter how large or small their AP program is. Thanks so much for all the help and support.
