How to Send Free AP Score Report

Every year that students take an AP Exam, they have the option to send one score report for free to the college, university, or scholarship organization of their choice. Score reports include both this year's and past AP Exam scores unless students choose to withhold or cancel a score. Ensure students activate their free AP score send by the June 20 deadline.
