AP Troubleshooting

Help! It's time to enroll and my AP score isn’t in MyUCSC! What should I do?

There are two reasons your AP might not be posted:

  1. Your score was never sent to UCSC. To have your scores sent, contact AP Services at (609) 771-7300 or (888) 225-5427, or collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/exgrd_rep.html. UCSC’s school code is 4860. There is no reason to “rush” the scores.
  2. Your score was sent to UCSC, but it didn’t correctly match with your student record. This can happen for a variety of reasons including a slightly different spelling of your name, a mis-match on the birthdate, etc. If you are sure your scores were sent, contact Admissions via their website: https://admissions.sa.ucsc.edu/inquiry/ (choose “Admitted Student,” then “Test Scores”). 

Admissions will review and respond to your inquiry in early August. In the meantime, if you were relying on your AP score to satisfy a prerequisite for a class you hope to enroll in today, contact the adviser for your intended major (if the class is for your major) for information and assistance with enrolling. They will likely need to see an unofficial copy of your score. You will still need to follow up in one of the ways above to ensure your score is posted to your record.
