Should I send scores to colleges before my senior year?

If you’re taking AP Exams as a junior or sophomore and you know you’ll be applying to a specific college, we suggest you use your one free score send to designate that college as a score recipient. You have until the June 20 deadline to use your free score send online. You can also request additional score sends online or by mail or fax for a fee.

If you’re a senior entering college in the fall, check your college’s deadline for getting AP scores. Many colleges have a mid-July deadline. We encourage you to send scores as soon as they’re available to make sure they are received in time.

Remember that if you take an AP Exam in your senior year and designate a college to receive your scores, that college will receive your entire score report from all AP Exams you have taken throughout high school unless you have requested score(s) to be withheld or canceled.
