• As early as possible, sign up for a College Board account at apscore.org. Students must have an account to access their scores.
      ◦ Some students may already have an account. Have them confirm this by signing in.

• Remember the following information, which will be required to see their scores in July: 
      ◦ College Board account username and password
      ◦ 2014 AP number (or student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet)

Score Release Schedule
The score release schedule will be available at apscore.org in early May, and students will receive an email in early July at the email address they put on their AP answer sheet reminding them when they can access their scores.
