Withhold Scores

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

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