What is an AP number and where can I find it?

If you took AP Exams in 2019 or earlier, you received an AP number—a unique eight-digit number that serves as your official identifier for the exam administration. We use the AP number to associate you with your scores. You received a different AP number each year you took AP Exams.

Starting in school year 2019-20, AP students will receive a permanent AP ID instead of an AP number. The AP ID will stay the same each year. (See What is an AP ID?).  

Your AP number appeared on the bar-coded number labels in your AP Student Pack that you affixed to your exam materials. You may have placed a label on your AP number card from your student pack and saved it in a safe place. 

If you’re asked to verify your AP profile when you sign in to access your scores online, you’ll have to enter your AP number and the year that you tested with that number.
