Important Information About Third-Party Services for AP Exams

College Board’s highest priority for the AP Exam administration is ensuring students receive on-time and accurate AP Exam scores.

To ensure exam materials remain secure and can be processed properly for scores, AP Exam administration policies specify that only the AP coordinator and authorized staff may handle exam materials. College Board does not work with any companies selling services to complete portions of AP Exam materials for students. These companies are not affiliated with College Board or our operational partners.

We cannot guarantee that third-party-modified portions of exam materials can be processed properly for scoring or that the companies selling these services can deliver accurate materials to schools in time for the exams. We do not know how they plan to manage any issues that might arise. If schools choose to deviate from the policies and procedures published by College Board, they are also choosing to accept full responsibility for (and associated costs resulting from) any delays or errors involving their students’ AP Exam scores.

We look forward to continuing to work directly with AP teachers, AP coordinators, and school administrators to ensure each AP Exam administration is a success and that students receive the on-time and accurate scores they deserve.
