  1. Score Cancellation and Disciplinary Measures. In the event that College Board and/or its contractors determine that your scores are invalid under Section 3(b) below, or you have engaged in Misconduct under Section 3(c) below, we may, in our sole discretion, take one or more of the following measures (“Measures”): deny you the right to take an AP Exam, decline to score your AP Exam, cancel your scores, ban you from taking future College Board assessments (including, without limitation, the SAT, CLEP exam or any future AP Exam), and/or share information with others as set forth in Section 3(f) below.

CAUTION! THE CONSEQUENCES OF CHEATING ON THE AP EXAM ARE SEVERE.

ALL INSTITUTIONS YOU SEND AP SCORES TO MAY BE NOTIFIED OF YOUR MISCONDUCT.

  1. Invalid Scores. We may cancel your scores and/or take any of the other Measures described above if after following the procedures set forth in this section, we determine, in our sole discretion, that there is substantial evidence that your scores are invalid (“Invalid Scores”). Examples of evidence of Invalid Scores include, without limitation, discrepant handwriting, unusual answer patterns, similar essays, or other evidence that indicates these Terms and Conditions may have been violated. Before canceling your scores under this Invalid Scores section, we will notify you in writing (via email if an email address is available) and provide you with an opportunity to submit written information to us to help resolve our inquiry. If you opt for a further review by a College Board review panel, and it confirms, in its sole discretion, that your scores are invalid, we will offer you 2 options: voluntary score cancellation or arbitration as set forth in Section 8 below. This process is referred to as the “Score Validity Process.” The arbitration option is available only for AP Exams administered in the United States and U.S. Territories.

  2. Misconduct. Notwithstanding Section 3(b) above, if we determine, in our sole discretion, that there is overwhelming evidence that you violated these Terms and Conditions (“Misconduct”), the Score Validity Process will not apply, and we may cancel your scores and/or take any of the Measures described above. Examples of Misconduct might include, without limitation, having someone else assist you during the AP Exam, having someone else take the AP Exam for you, giving assistance to another test taker during the AP Exam, or plagiarizing, which includes submitting an AP Exam with any material other than the exclusive product of your own work, or that includes any text, content, graphics, pictures, or other content from a third-party source. Misconduct may be established in various ways, including, without limitation, by evidence discovered after the administration.  

  3. Testing Irregularities. We may cancel your scores if we determine, in our sole discretion, that any testing irregularity occurred (collectively, “Testing Irregularities”). Examples of Testing Irregularities include, without limitation, problems, irregular circumstances, or events associated with the administration of an AP Exam, and may affect one test taker or groups of test takers. Such problems include, without limitation, administrative errors (e.g., using accommodations not approved by College Board or defective equipment), network outages, system errors, evidence of possible preknowledge of secure AP Exam content, and disruptions of testing administrations caused by events such as natural disasters, epidemics, wars, riots, civil disturbances, or other emergencies. When Testing Irregularities occur, we may cancel an entire administration or individual registrations, decline to score all or part of the AP Exam, or cancel scores. We may do this regardless of whether or not you caused the Testing Irregularities, benefited from them, or violated these Terms and Conditions. We may, in our sole discretion, give you a refund. This is the sole remedy that may be available to you as a result of Testing Irregularities.

  4. Test Taker Reporting Misconduct or Suspicious Behavior. You may confidentially report any suspected violation of these Terms and Conditions, or any suspicion concerning the security of an AP Exam administration, by immediately emailing the AP Hotline at [email protected]

Section 8. ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER 

  1. General Arbitration Rules (“General Arbitration Rules”)

    • Any dispute regarding the enforceability of these arbitration provisions, or whether a dispute is subject to these arbitration provisions, shall be resolved by the arbitrator.

    • All disputes between you and College Board and/or any or all of its contractors that relate in any way to registering for, participating in, or taking the AP Exam, including but not limited to requesting or receiving test accommodations, score reporting, the use of your data, test security issues, or the Score Validity Process, but excluding all claims that a party violated the intellectual property rights of the other party, shall exclusively be resolved by a single arbitrator through binding, individual arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time a request for arbitration is filed with the AAA. Copies of the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules are located at adr.org.

    • Disputes relating to the Score Validity Process (defined in the “Invalid Scores” section herein) are subject to both these General Arbitration Rules and the Supplemental Arbitration Rules defined below. If there is a conflict between the General Arbitration Rules and the Supplemental Arbitration Rules, the Supplemental Arbitration Rules will control.

    • This arbitration will be conducted as a documents-only arbitration (i.e., there will be no in-person or telephone hearing) unless otherwise agreed by the parties or required by the arbitrator. Should the parties agree to or the arbitrator require proceedings, such proceedings should be conducted at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the parties agree that the proceedings will be conducted via a video or telephonic call or, in the event that face-to-face proceedings are agreed to by the parties or required by the arbitrator, at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties in accordance with the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules.

    • The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. governs this provision, and it is the intent of the parties that the FAA shall preempt all State laws to the fullest extent permitted by law.

    • No arbitration may be maintained as a class or collective action, and the arbitrator shall not have the authority to combine or aggregate the disputes of more than 1 individual, conduct any class or collective proceeding, make any class or collective award, or make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration, without the express written consent of College Board.

    • By agreeing to arbitration in accordance with this section, you are waiving your right to have your dispute heard by a judge or jury except as set forth below.

    • To commence arbitration, you must pay the AAA filing fee (unless AAA agrees to waive the fee for you) and follow the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. The filing fee will be reimbursed by College Board if you prevail in arbitration. Each party will be responsible for its own attorney’s fees and expenses. College Board generally pays the arbitrator’s compensation but the arbitrator may require you to pay those fees if the arbitrator determines that your claim was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous, as per the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules.

  2. Supplemental Arbitration Rules for the Score Validity Process (“Supplemental Arbitration Rules”)

    • If you receive a notice from us that your scores are subject to the Score Validity Process, you may be provided with the option to choose arbitration. In addition to the General Arbitration Rules, the below rules will apply.

    • The sole issue for the arbitrator to decide is whether College Board acted in good faith and followed the Score Validity Process.

    • This arbitration will be based only on (i) the documents you submitted to College Board pursuant to the Score Validity Process and (ii) College Board documents unless otherwise agreed by the parties or required by the arbitrator.

    • If the arbitrator finds that College Board did not act in good faith in deciding to cancel your scores, your scores will not be canceled (or they will be reinstated, if applicable).

    • All other disputes with College Board will be resolved solely by the General Arbitration Rules in Section 8(a) above.

  3. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions in Sections 8(a) and 8(b) above, either party may take a claim to small claims court instead of arbitration if the party’s claim is within the jurisdiction of the small claims court, as permitted in the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. If either party institutes an action in small claims court, you and College Board agree to accept the findings of the small claims court as a final resolution of the parties’ dispute and not to appeal the small claims court’s decision or pursue any other claim (including a claim asserted in arbitration) relating to that dispute.

Section 9. Governing Law, Venue and Waiver of Jury Trial

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of New York without regard to choice or conflict of law principles. All disputes arising from or related to this Agreement that are not subject to arbitration under Section 8 shall be resolved exclusively in the state and federal courts located in New York County, New York State and each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction of such courts. Each Party expressly waives any right to a jury trial in any lawsuit arising from or related to this Agreement. 

Section 10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT FINALLY DETERMINED TO BE PROHIBITED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABLITY OF COLLEGE BOARD TO YOU OR ANYONE CLAIMING BY OR THROUGH YOU OR ON YOUR BEHALF, FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, COSTS, OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO COLLEGE BOARD, OR ANY TEST ADMINISTRATION BY COLLEGE BOARD, FROM ANY CAUSE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TEST REGISTRATION FEES YOU PAID OR $100.00, WHICHEVER IS GREATER. IN ADDITION, COLLEGE BOARD WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY EVENT FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES. 

Section 11. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES 

COLLEGE BOARD MAKES NO WARRANTIES REGARDING THE AP EXAM, EXAM CONTENT, OR TESTING APPLICATION INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION A WARRANTY THAT THE TESTING EXPERIENCE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. YOU ACCEPT THE AP EXAM, EXAM CONTENT, AND TESTING APPLICATION AS IS. 

Section 12. Severability 

If any section or part of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining sections or parts will nevertheless continue in full force and effect without being impaired or invalidated in any way and to the extent possible, the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision shall be modified so that it is valid, legal, and enforceable and, to the fullest extent, reflects the intention of the parties. 

Section 13. Restricted Registrations 

College Board, along with our service providers outside of the U.S., is subject to U.S. economic sanctions, laws, and regulations and is prohibited from providing testing services to, or accepting registrations from, persons residing in certain areas or designated by the U.S. government as Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (collectively, “Sanctioned Persons”), unless specifically licensed or otherwise authorized by the U.S. government. If a Sanctioned Person attempts to register despite U.S. sanctions that prohibit College Board from doing business with such Sanctioned Person, College Board or a U.S. financial institution may block the registration or payments submitted by or for such Sanctioned Persons. If payment is not blocked, College Board will cancel the registration and may not be able to refund the payment.
