Sending your AP and IB exams to NYU

AP Scores: Release AP scores from the College Board to NYU using the school code: 2562. Once students submit the request, it usually takes the College Board 2 – 4 weeks to send scores from within the past 5 years. Scores from 5 or more years ago will take longer (4-6 weeks) to arrive because they are “archived” and need to be mailed. Scores will be processed within one week of receipt. Scores will appear on the student’s transcripts.

Sending your AP and IB exams to NYU

IB Scores: IB scores must be released electronically via the IBO to New York University. For most students, the IB coordinator at your school should help you identify which university the scores should be sent to before you sit for the exams. Scores are released on January 5 for November exams and on July 5 for May exams. Students who need to make a request to send scores after taking the exam should see this link for additional information.
