AP scores will be available online at the beginning of July. Scores are released over several days based on the state in which you tested. View the date and location schedule, and your scores, on the College Board website.
What is the AP exam score scale?
There is no “pass” or “fail” on the AP tests. It’s important to understand the definitions of the AP scores.
5 = extremely well qualified | Many universities award college credit
4 = well qualified | Some universities award college credit
3 = qualified | Some universities award college credit
2 = possibly qualified | No college credit awarded
1 = no recommendation | No college credit awarded

What if I have other questions about my AP test scores?
Check out the College Board’s AP Student Top Questions page for answers to viewing and sending scores to colleges, payment, and more.
Sending Scores to College
Be sure you send your scores to the college you are attending in the fall. The college needs your official AP scores to award you any college credit. Additionally, your college may use these scores for placement purposes. Even if you do not receive credit, it’s important to send your official score report. Check with your college to confirm their policy on awarding AP credit. You may also hear this information from your advisor at orientation, or see your college credits on your school’s student web portal.
