Once the configuration process is complete, you must run the Configuration Check. This utility is found in the list of configuration links under each service menu (AP, PSAT/NMSQT, and IB) and will check all your configuration settings and identify any errors. If the configuration is error-free, the registration site will be active for students but will not open until your begin date. If the configuration has errors, they must be corrected before the registration site can go live. Once the errors are resolved the Configuration Check must be run again. Click the Configuration Check link to check your configuration.
NOTE: Schools' registration sites will not be active until they have completed the Configuration Check without any errors.
The Configuration Check may give schools two types of messages - Errors and Warnings.
- Errors are problems with the configuration that must be corrected before the registration site will be activated. When errors are encountered, a link will be given to the appropriate section of the configuration. After errors have been corrected, the Configuration Check must be run again. Some errors may require the help of Total Registration. If TR assistance is needed, an email will be sent to TR.
- Warnings are concerns that do not prevent the registration site from being activated. Please read the warnings carefully and be sure to understand the consequences of continuing. Schools can proceed with taking no action on the warnings. If action is taken, we recommend running the Configuration Check once more.
NEXT STEP: After passing the configuration check, you should do at least one test mode registration to verify your exam fees and exam choices are set as you intended. The AP configuration check REQUIRES you to complete at least one test mode registration. You can read more about doing one at Testing your AP Configuration.
