Once teachers share the join codes, students must go into their College Board accts and select YES for the test.  The new payment system cannot generate an invoice for payment unless this step has been completed.
Payment is due by November 11th at midnight through the School Bucks System.  Therefore, students need to make the YES decision by November 11th at noon.  So that a final invoice can be generated, sent to a parent, and paid that afternoon/evening.  If you are paying by check, the check is required by 11/11.

Your mentor will communicate helpful information to you throughout your first year, as well as support you or help you find additional support in whatever way is needed.
