Note: NYU Shanghai will not accept scores from an AP exam (or other exam meant for high school students) taken after a student already matriculated at NYU Shanghai.

Below is information for sending AP and IB exams to NYU.

AP Scores: Students should release AP scores via College Board to NYU using the school code: 2562. Once students submit the request for scores to be sent, it typically takes College Board between 2 – 4 weeks to send scores from within the past 5 years. Scores from 5 or more years ago take about 4 – 6 weeks to receive because they are “archived” and sent via postal mail as opposed to delivered in an electronic file. Score are processed within one week of receipt. Scores will appear on the student’s transcripts.

IB Scores: IB scores must be released electronically via the IBO to New York University. For most students, the IB coordinator at their school assists them in identifying the university scores should be sent to prior to sitting for the examination. Scores for future exam dates are released on January 5 for the November exams and on July 5 for the May exams. Students who are requesting scores be sent after taking the exam can navigate to this link for additional information.

Students can EITHER select China as the country of the institution and New York University Shanghai OR United States as the country, New York as the state, and New York University.
