Withhold Scores

Important Update

To support students affected by school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re offering at-home testing for 2020 AP Exams. This means changes to some of our processes and policies. Note that these adjustments may not be reflected on all AP Students pages including this one. For the most updated information, visit Updates for AP Students Affected by Coronavirus.

You can request that the AP Program withhold one or more AP Exam scores from any college or scholarship program that you chose as a score recipient. The score will be withheld from any future score reports sent to that college or scholarship program.

  • A request to withhold a score does not permanently delete your score.
  • You may later release the score to the college or program by sending AP Services a signed written request. There is no charge to release scores.
  • For scores to be withheld from the college indicated on your AP answer sheet, AP Services must receive your request by June 15 of the year you took the AP Exam.
