What is an AP ID?

When you first enroll in a class section in My AP, you’re assigned a unique eight-digit alphanumeric code that serves as your official AP identifier for the exam administration. We use this code, called your AP ID, to associate you with your scores. 

Starting in school year 2019-20, the AP ID you receive is permanent. You’ll use it for any AP Exams you take, any year.

When you take your exams, you’ll be given a personalized AP ID label sheet. This will contain bar-coded labels with your AP ID printed beneath. You’ll affix a label to your answer sheet and exam materials; this connects you to your exam materials.

If you are accessing your AP Exam scores from 2019 or earlier, you may be asked to verify your AP profile when you sign in to your online account. If this happens, you’ll have to enter your AP number for that year. This is different than your AP ID. (See What is an AP number and where can I find it?)
