How to Get Your AP Scores

AP scores will be available online starting July 5. They will not be mailed to you. Before you can access your  AP Scores, you’ll need to sign up for a College Board account if you don't already have one. We encourage you to sign up for a College Board account as soon as possible (be sure to make a note of your username and password). You may already have an account—try signing in to confirm.

AP scores are accessible online based on your physical location when you log in; the date of availability of scores is not based on where you live or where you took the exam. Look for an email in early July at the same address you put on your AP answer sheet, reminding you how and when to access your scores. Your browser must be set to allow cookies.

To access your scores you will need your Your College Board account username and password and your AP number (or student ID number if you provided it on your AP answer sheet). Learn more here.
