MCHS Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Information

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Madison Central High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn student’s college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the AP exams, students at Madison Central High School will be registering online through both Total Registration and College Board. These registrations will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $98.00. Madison Central High School desires that every student be able to take his or her AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance will register online but will check the Free/Reduced lunch box in order to be eligible for exams at no cost. This is based on the completion of the HIF form and if a student was approved for free/reduced lunch.

Online Exam registration, students should click on the link provide on the school website or visit to register.

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. 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.

This year the scantron answer sheets will be filled out by Total Registration.  Therefore, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT ALL OF THE INFORMATION ON YOUR REGISTRATION FORM IS CORRECT as the information will come from the website.

Madison Central High School 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.

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Exams may be canceled after the order has been placed, but $40 will be charged per canceled exam.
  • Please contact Ms. Katherine Farmer at  if you would like to register for an exam not listed or have any questions.
