When should I send scores to colleges?

It's easiest and most cost-effective to send your scores to a college through My AP—you have until the June 20 deadline to use your free score send online. If you decide to wait, you can send your scores online for a $15 fee. In general, you should send your scores no later than July of your senior year of high school. If you're a senior entering college in the fall, check your college's deadline for getting AP scores. Some colleges won't accept AP scores after you have arrived on campus as a freshman. When you designate a college/university to receive your scores, they'll receive your entire score report from all AP Exams you've taken throughout high school unless you've requested scores be withheld or canceled.

If you don't believe you'll be able to meet your school's deadline because you have a later score access date, email AP Services at [email protected] or call 888-225-5427 (toll-free) or 212-632-1780.
