How to Access AP Scores

AP Scores: How Students Access

College Board will make AP scores available to students online in July via the AP scores website

In order for a student to access their scores, they will need to follow these steps:

At Exam Time:

  • Students should fill in AP answer sheets carefully and consistently at exam time to prevent delays in score access.
  • Name, date of birth, sex, mailing address, and email address are especially important.

Before July:

  • If a student hasn't already, sign up for a College Board account on the student AP scores website as early as possible.  Students must use their Northshore email account ( for both their College Board account and their TotalRegistration account.  Failure to do so may result in the student not receiving the correct exam in the spring.
  • Students must have their own account to access their scores (parents must not create an account for their student).
  • It’s best to provide the same information on your College Board account and your AP answer sheet.
  • Some students may already have an account, particularly if they’ve registered for the PSAT, SAT, or participated in other College Board programs.
  • Students should confirm this by signing in.
  • Students must remember the following required login information to access scores:
    • College Board account username and password
    • 2021 AP number (or student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet)

In July:

Students will receive a reminder email from the College Board when scores are available. Students log on to to get their scores.
