AP Bulletin for AP Students and Parents

AP exams contain both multiple-choice and free response questions that require essay writing and problem solving. These exams are available to high school students who take AP courses.

If you are not in high school, but are interested in taking AP tests, contact AP Services for Students to get the contact information for AP Coordinators who test students not in highschool. Visit the College Board’s AP website for registration information and exam dates.

Score Reports

If you took an AP test in high school, you had the opportunity to have one free score report sent to the institution of your choice. If you did not select UA Little Rock at that time, you must contact the College Board AP to request that your score report be sent to UA Little Rock.

AP scores are removed from College Board’s AP online score reporting system and archived four years after your most recent AP Exam. Complete the Archived AP Scores Request Form, and mail or fax it to AP Services. Archived AP Score Reports are mailed via first-class mail 15 business days after AP Services receives the request. A confirmation copy will be sent to your home address.

Has my score report been evaluated and credits posted?

Score reports are received in July. You may refer to your UA Little Rock Boss account to view your earned credits. You will need your UA Little Rock “T” number (ID) and pin number to access Boss.
