One way students may earn credit by examination is by submitting a qualifying score on an AP Exam. This page outlines the procedures for submitting and confirming AP scores and the equivalent ND courses for each AP credit.

Submitting AP Scores

Students can verify that First Year Advising has received their AP exam scores by accessing the “My Test Scores” app on InsideND. (Search “My Test Scores” within the InsideND portal). If you selected Notre Dame as a recipient of your test scores, you will have scores listed within My Test Scores from tests taken before Spring 2022. AP exam scores from Spring 2022 test dates will be received in July 2022. Any credit that has already been granted for AP exams can be viewed on the “Grade History” app on InsideND.

If First Year Advising does not have your AP scores by July 8th:

  1. Sign in to your College Board account at https://apscore.collegeboard.org/scores/
  2. Click “Download score report” in the upper right corner of the page
  3. Save the score report as a PDF
  4. Email it as an attachment to your first-year advisor as an attachment
