Reports and Services for Students
AP Online Scores for Students
This year, your students will get their AP Exam scores online! Visit AP Online Scores for Students to learn what they need to do to be ready to get their scores in July. You'll also find a toolkit of resources to help you communicate this transition to teachers, students, and parents.
In order to access their scores, students need an online College Board account. Please encourage your students who don’t have an account to sign up today.
AP Score Reporting Services for Students
Score reports are provided to students in July. Some scores take longer to process due to late testing or other special circumstances (e.g., late arrival of testing materials or extra time needed to match your records). If students don’t receive them by September 1, they should contact AP Services.
Each score report is cumulative — it includes scores from every AP Exam that student has ever taken, unless he or she has requested that one or more scores be withheld or canceled. On the first AP answer sheet students fill out (the “registration” answer sheet), they can indicate a college or university to receive their score report for free. If they choose not to indicate a score report recipient, but want to send a score report to a college at a later time, they can do so.
AP Online Scores for Students
Starting in July, your students will be able to view their AP scores and order additional score reports for colleges, universities, and scholarship programs online. They will not receive scores in the mail. Visit AP Online Scores for Students to learn what they need to do to be ready to get their scores in July. The fee for additional score reports ordered online is $15 per report. The fee for rush processing for additional score reports ordered online is $25 per report.

When requesting these score reporting services from AP Services, students should include the following information with each of their requests:
- The score reporting service(s) the student is requesting
- The student's full name, home address, phone number, gender, date of birth, AP number(s), and social security number (if provided on the answer sheet)
- Each year the student took AP Exams
- A credit card number and expiration date, or a check or money order for the exact amount due (make checks and money orders payable to AP Exams)
- When requesting additional score reports: the name, city and state, and college code of the college(s) the student would like to receive the report
- When requesting score withholding, score cancellation, multiple-choice rescoring, or the student's original free-response booklets: the name(s) of the exam(s) to which the request applies
Additional score reports (mail or fax requests)
If the student cannot use the new online score reporting system (July 2013 and onwards) to send additional score reports to colleges, universities, or scholarship programs, he or she can mail or fax a written request with payment to AP Services. Note: faxed requests must include a credit card number and expiration date. Mailed requests must include a check or money order payable to AP Exams.
A student may request that one or more scores be withheld from the college indicated on his or her registration answer sheet. To have a score withheld from the indicated college, the student must send AP Services a signed, written request by mail or fax, which must be received by June 15, accompanied by a $10 fee per score, per college. The score will be withheld from any future score reports sent to that particular college. The student can later release the score to that college by sending AP Services a signed written request. A request to withhold a score does not permanently delete a student's score, and all exam scores, even those withheld from score reports sent to colleges, are sent to the student and the student's high school.
If a student requests cancellation of an AP Exam score, that score is deleted permanently from the student's records and can never be retrieved. There is no fee for score cancellation, and the exam fee is not refunded. Scores may be canceled at any time. However, for scores not to appear on the current year's score report, AP Services must receive a signed, written request by mail or fax requesting cancellation by June 15. Students should complete the Score Cancellation Form (.pdf/51K) and return it to the address or fax number indicated. While there is no fee for this service, the exam fee is not refunded. The score report that the student and the school receive will indicate that the score has been canceled.
For a fee of $7 per booklet, students can obtain their original free-response
booklet(s) by contacting AP Services. No comments, corrections, or scores are included. AP Services must receive a signed, written request by mail or fax by September 15 of the year in which the student took the exam. Students will not be able to order their booklet(s) after this date. Booklets for exams whose free-response questions are not released on the College Board website (e.g., late-testing exams) are not available.
Multiple-Choice Rescore Service
Students may request to have their multiple-choice answer sheet rescored by hand. This score and the free-response score are then appropriately weighted and combined. The resulting score is converted to an AP score and compared with the reported score. In the unlikely event of a difference, the rescored score will prevail, and all score recipients will be notified. The multiple-choice section is not disclosed, and therefore scores on this section are not available. The free-response section is not reread. Studio Art portfolios are not reevaluated. AP Services must receive the student's signed, written request by mail or fax by October 31 of the year in which the student took the exam. The fee is $25 per exam. Please allow six to eight weeks for a response.
Four years after a student's test date, AP scores are removed from the active computer files at AP Services and archived. AP Services must receive a signed and written request, and the fee is $25 per college. Please complete the Archived AP Scores Request Form (.pdf/72K) and mail or fax it to the address or number indicated. Archived AP Score Reports will be mailed via first-class mail within seven to ten business days after AP Services receives the request, and a confirmation copy will be sent to the student's home address.
