Use of your student’s Social Security Number (SSN) on AP Exams

The College Board asks for the student’s Social Security Number (SSN), which is optional, on each exam the student takes during his/her high school career. The use of the student’s SSN as the unique identifier on each exam allows for the most effective transfer of all the student’s AP scores to a college or university.  The school district does not require students to use their SSN and recommends that parents and students discuss the use of the SSN before the exam administration.
