AP Scores - not seeing ability to send a score online

BrimfieldBrimfield Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I took 3 AP tests this. None show on collegeboard.com. I understand the SCORE will not be posted to the collegeboard website until July 7th, but I need to SEND the scores. I am applying for Dual Enrollment. The university needs by scores by July 15th (they announce acceptances / rejections on July 17th, so July 15th REALLY is the last day).

When I go to collegeboard.com, I can see my SAT scores and my SAT Subject test scores, but NOTHING for AP tests. The college board site has a link for me to request my AP tests be sent. However, when I click this link, it only says that no AP test scores were found. How can I request that my scores be sent if the link to request them to be sent says they were not found?

Am I doing something wrong? All of the help on collegeboard.com seems to only take me in a circle back to the page where I clicked on the help link.

    You don't have the ability to send the scores (or do anything with them really) until they're released as far as I know. You may be able to call and have someone at Collegeboard/ETS put your request in the system manually. Did you not choose to have your scores sent to your college when you took the tests?

    Have you taken AP tests in the past? How do you come to this conclusion? Is your post conjecture or based on experience?

    Since this is for dual enrollment, not for regular college admission, I had no particular guidance on the process. I did choose to have my scores sent to colleges when I took the SAT and SAT Subject tests. However, I suspect that MOST students do NOT include colleges for AP tests. In fact, I have seen advice to not do include colleges for AP tests at the time the test is taken.

    I am only a sophomore and I suspect, for most high school sophomore students, selecting colleges to receive your AP test (not an SAT or SAT Subject test) is not the norm. I started high school early (part time middle school - part time high school) while in middle school. The irony is, I am out of high school math classes, so if I cannot get my AP score to the university by July 15th, it will sort of screw up my college plans. (I will have 4 years of high school my on my transcript, but only 2 years while IN high school)

    I took AP tests last year and this year, and in my account I don't have the option of doing anything with 2014 scores. I actually get a notice that says that I can only send 2013 scores right now. The button you click to select schools is at the top of the report you'll be able to see when your scores are released. Since you don't have access to a score report yet, you don't have the ACTUAL link to select a college to have them sent to.

    I asked whether or not you requested to have your scores sent on your test day because I figured your guidance counselor may have been aware of the situation and recommended that you do so. I didn't mean to come across like it was obvious that that was what should've been done, because I know it's NOT obvious! Sorry if it seemed that way (and you're right, most AP testers who aren't seniors don't include a college).

    I'd recommend that you contact Collegeboard/ETS by phone AND call the person in charge of placement at your college, explain the situation, and see if anything can be done on either end. Good luck!

    Sorry if any of that was confusing but I'm about to fall asleep right where I'm sitting!

    As previously stated, you can't send scores until they are posted but you should be able to send them the minute they are posted so you'll be fine :)
