How to Get AP Scores

If you're anxious to find out how you did on your Advanced Placement exams, there are a number of ways to find out.


  • Step 1: Withhold one or more of your scores from the college you indicated on your registration. To have your scores withheld, contact AP Services with a written request via fax or mail by June 15. The cost is $10 per score per college.
  • Step 2: Obtain archived scores by sending a written request to AP Services. The cost is $25 per college. Tests are archived four years after the test date. Tests can be looked up without your AP number if you provided your social security number at the time of your test.
  • FACT: Students who score a 3 or higher on their AP exams typically have greater academic success in college and improved graduation rates than their non-AP student peers.
  • Step 3: Ask your high school's AP administrator to look up your score online. Authorized staff members at schools have access to the Online Score Reports website.
  • TIP: You can have your score sent to additional colleges not listed on your registration for $15 per college.
  • TIP: Your transcripts contain the scores from all the AP exams you have ever taken.
  • Step 4: Get your scores early via the AP Scores phone service. After July 1, you can get your scores if you call the number listed on your registration and give your AP number, Social Security number, exam year, and credit card number to pay the $8.00 fee.
  • Step 5: Wait for your AP score report to come in the mail. Reports are sent in mid-July. One copy goes to you, one goes to your high school, and one goes to the college or university you indicated when you signed up for the test.
