Reports and Services for Students
AP Score Reporting Services for Students
Score reports are available online 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 records). If students don’t receive them by Sept. 1, they should contact AP Services.
Each score report is cumulative — it includes scores from every AP Exam a 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
Your students can view their AP scores and order additional score reports for colleges, universities, and scholarship programs online at www.apscore.org. They will not receive paper score reports 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. Standard delivery takes 7–14 business days, while rush delivery takes 5–9 business days. The exact number of days depends on when the request is submitted and the location of the score recipient.
Important: Due to AP Exam scoring activities, rush delivery will be unavailable for score reports – whether requested online, by mail, or by fax – from mid to late June. Standard delivery may take up to 20 business days during this time.
If students aren’t able use the online service to send scores to colleges, they can make their request by mail or fax: see Additional Score Reports below for details. If students have not taken an exam in the past four years, they must use the archive score reporting service (see below for more information). A signature from the student or the student’s parent/guardian is required on all requests.
Additional Score Reports (Mail or Fax Requests)
If students are unable to use the online score reporting system to send additional score reports to colleges, universities, or scholarship programs, they can mail or fax a signed, written request with payment to AP Services. Note: faxed requests must include a credit/debit card number and expiration date. Mailed requests must include a check or money order payable to AP Exams. Additional score reports are $15 per report and are delivered in approximately 7–14 business days. Requests for rush processing are $25 per report, and delivery takes approximately 5–9 business days.
Students must include the following information in their request:
- Their full name, mailing address, phone number, sex, date of birth,
AP number(s), and Social Security number (if they provided it on their answer sheet)
- The name and address of their school
- The full name of the exam(s) for which they are requesting additional score reports (e.g., "English Literature and Composition", not "English") and the year(s) they took the exam(s)
- A credit card number and expiration date, or a check or money order for the exact amount due (checks and money orders made payable to AP Exams)
- The name, city and state, and four-digit college code(s) of the college(s) to which they want to send the report
- Their signature or a signature from their parent/guardian
Archived AP Scores
Four years after a student’s most recent AP Exam, his or her AP scores are removed from our online score reporting system and archived. To send archived AP scores, a student should complete the Archived AP Scores Request Form (.pdf/162KB) and mail or fax it to AP Services. The fee is $25 per college. Archived AP Score Reports are mailed via first-class mail within 15 business days of receipt of the request, and a confirmation copy will be sent to the student’s mailing address.
Other Score Reporting Services
Students can order the services listed below by printing and completing the appropriate form and mailing or faxing it to AP Services with payment (if applicable):
P.O. Box 6671
Princeton, NJ 08541-6671
A signature from the student or the student's parent/guardian is required on all forms.
Students can withhold one or more scores from the college specified on their registration answer sheet or from any other college to which they want to send a score report. The score will be withheld from any future score reports sent to that particular college. A request to withhold a score does not permanently delete the score. Students may later release the score to that college by sending AP Services a signed written request. Students should complete the AP Score Withholding Form (.pdf/560KB) and mail or fax it to AP Services by June 15, 2016, to withhold scores from the 2016 administration from the college indicated on their registration answer sheet. Requests for additional score reports received after June 15 will take approximately 7–14 business days for standard delivery, while rush delivery takes approximately 5–9 business days. The exact number of days depends on when the request is submitted and the location of the score recipient. The fee to withhold a score is $10 per score per college plus $15 per report for standard processing or $25 per report for rush processing to send the score report to the college.
Canceling an AP Exam score permanently deletes it — it cannot be reinstated at a later time. Scores may be canceled at any time. However, for scores not to be sent to the college indicated on a student’s 2016 AP answer sheet, AP Services must receive the cancellation request by June 15, 2016. Students must complete the AP Score Cancellation Form (.pdf/198KB) and mail or fax it to AP Services. Once a cancellation is requested, the exam will not be scored, and a score for that exam will never be available. (Archived scores cannot be canceled.)
Students may obtain their original free-response booklet(s) from the most recent exam administration. No comments, corrections, or scores are included. Booklets for exams whose free-response questions are not released on the College Board website (for example, late-testing exams) are not available. Students should complete the AP Free-Response Booklet Request Form (.pdf/382KB) and mail or fax it to AP Services by Sept. 15 of the year they took the exam. They will receive their booklet two to three weeks after their order is received. Note: no orders for free-response booklets will be processed until after all AP Exams have been scored in July. The fee is $10 per booklet.
Multiple-Choice Rescore Service
Students may request to have their multiple-choice answer sheet rescored by hand. That multiple-choice 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 originally reported score. If the scores are different, the rescored score will prevail, and it will be sent to any college to which the score was previously sent. Students should complete the AP Multiple-Choice Rescore Service Form (.pdf/560KB) and mail or fax it to AP Services by Oct. 31 of the year they took the exam. They will receive a letter confirming the results of the rescore six to eight weeks after their request is received. The fee is $30 per exam.
