AP students will get scores online this year.
As you may have heard, students will receive their AP scores online this July. This convenient new system replaces the old paper score reports, which will no longer be mailed.
To find out more about important changes, the Collegeboard has developed an awareness toolkit which is available here for download:
Here are the key things know in order to better assist with this transition:
1. Students MUST have a College Board account in order to access their AP scores online in July. Students can sign up for a free College
Board account at apscore.org as early as possible.
* Many students will already have an account if they've
ever registered for the SAT(R) or participated in other
College Board programs. Students who already have an
account should sign in and confirm that they have the
correct username and password.

updates about how and when they can access their scores.
2. Students are encouraged to complete two important fields on their
first 2013 AP answer sheet: their student identifier
(student ID number) and email address.
* Local student identifier or student ID number (Field T):
If students have a local identifier and provide it on
their AP answer sheet, they can use it to access their

that is most appropriate to use for reporting AP Exam

address will receive a notification when their AP scores
3. Students MUST hold on to their AP number.
* For security reasons, students will need to provide
their AP number (or their student ID number, if they
provided it on their answer sheet) in order to view
their scores online and send scores to colleges.
