If an Edison student earns a qualifying grade on an AP Exam (score of 3, 4, or 5), they can receive credit for the equivalent course at thousands of colleges and universities.  At Edison, we have had students earn up to a whole year’s worth of credits.  That amounts to a lot of money saved.  Many scholarship awards consider AP classes and grades.  It also allows a student to experience what a

college course will be like.  Talk to your counselor for Pre-AP or AP classes.

Exam Scores

AP Score Reports are sent in July to the college or university you designated on your answer sheet, to you, and to your high school. Each report is cumulative and includes scores for all the AP Exams you have ever taken, unless you have requested that one or more scores be withheld from a college or canceled. Visit AP Score Reporting Services.

To request that your score reports be sent to colleges, call 888 308-0013 (toll free in the United States and Canada) or 609 771-7366.

Most AP Score Reports are sent by mid-July. Some reports take longer to process because of problems with identification information or the late arrival of materials from the testing location. Contact AP Services if you have not received a score report by September 1.

Subscores are not available (except for Calculus BC and Music Theory) nor are scores analyzed to determine strengths and weaknesses.
