Having fees vary by exam and by number of exams

If your school charges a different fee for a particular exam (for example, AP Research or AP Seminar) AND your school also has fees vary by the number of exams taken, you will need to configure the different exam fee in a specific way. You should select Fee Varies by Number of Exams in your Fee Calculations window, enter the varying fees for each exam and click Save.

You will then need to create a custom question in your Manage Custom Questions window. The custom question will ask the student if he/she is taking the exam with the different fee (for example, "Are you registering for AP Research or AP Seminar?"). Select Multiple Choice for the question type with possible answers of "Yes" or "No." Once you have created and saved the custom question, contact Support at Total Registration and we will configure the fee to attach to that question when a student answers "yes."

If your exam fees vary by number of SPECIFIC exams (i.e. the first STEM exam is free), you will need to choose Fee Varies by Exam, click Manage AP Exams, and set the AP Research and AP Seminar fees at that time. You will then need to edit your Financial Assistance question to include the question "Are you taking more than one STEM exam?" When a student answers "yes" to that question, they will be placed in a waitlist queue and you must approve or deny their request. When you approve their fee waiver request, you can then enter the amount of the exam to be waived, choose to "Record a single total waiver," and add a note that the fee waiver is for the exam fee of the student's first STEM exam. Click Submit. The student will then be able to login to his/her account and see the adjusted amount.
