Adding Join Codes to AP Exams

The College Board requires your school to provide a Join Code to each student in each AP class and have the students "enroll" via the College Board's website for their AP exam and resources (this change will be mandatory for all schools in the 2019-2020 school year). The College Board will provide the Join Codes to your school/teachers to share with students. You should enter the codes into Total Registration and the system will automatically provide students the join codes for all of their courses at the end of TR's registration process. This process removes the need for teachers to individually distribute their unique join codes to each class and reduces errors with the enrollment process.

During the Configuration Interview, the TR system will request you upload the Join Code file - Section Info Downloaded from College Board's system. Once you download that information from College Board and upload the file into the TR system, you can link the teachers and periods to the AP courses you have configured in Total Registration so the unique join code assigned to each teacher/period combination will be given to each student who registers for that course/exam.  

You can click Configuration Check within AP configuration to see a table of exams, teachers, periods, and join codes in use.


After students register in TR they can access their unique Join Codes three ways:

  • TR will display them on the confirmation screen with directions of how to register in the College Board's system.
  • TR will send a pdf attachment with the confirmation email that has the student's unique join codes.
  • Students can view their join codes in their TR account by accessing the Student's Account History.
