Class of 2018 Graduates

AP Test Scores will be released soon

If your child took an AP Exam in May, they will get access to their AP scores between Thursday, July 5, and Monday, July 9, depending on your location.

To help your child get ready for AP scores, encourage them to:

Create a College Board account. It's required to access scores. If they already have an account, have them sign in now to make sure they remember their username and password. Keep in mind that this College Board account is the same account used to register for the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and for retrieving and sending scores for those exams. We recommend that students create a safe place to store passwords for log-ins such as this as they will need to access these sites often.

Make sure they have their 2018 AP number. This is the eight-digit number on the barcoded labels in the AP Student Pack booklet provided during this year's exams. They may be asked for this number when accessing their scores. They may also use their student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet.

Paying For College

Applying for need-based financial aid to afford the cost of college?

If you are planning to apply for need-based financial aid to afford the cost of college, here are some helpful tips to get you through this process. Priority financial aid application deadlines are generally in February or March. Go to each college’s financial aid website for instructions on what documents they require to be considered for aid. Most schools will require the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from US Citizens and Permanent Residents requesting financial aid.


Basic FAFSA Instructions:

  1. Students* and parents can use their prior year 2017 taxes to complete the FAFSA. Financial aid applications for students enrolling in college in the 2019-2020 academic year will be based on 2017 tax information.
  2. Create your FSA ID at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm. Students AND parents need a FSA ID to securely complete and sign the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) electronically.
  3. Submit the 2019-2020 FAFSA on or before October 1, 2018 at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/index.htm. You will need both student* and parent 2016 tax information.

Important Notes:

•The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows you to import your tax information directly from the IRS into your FAFSA electronically. Most colleges prefer (and some require) that you use this tool when filling out the FAFSA.

Additional Information:

Some schools will require the 2019-2020 CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (found at http://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile). The PROFILE is a financial aid application that many private and some public colleges use. This document will ask you for 2017 financial information. The College Board charges a fee to send the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE to schools. You may find a list of institutions that require the PROFILE on the above website; however, we recommend you go to each college’s financial aid website for document requirements and deadlines.

Some schools have their own financial aid application documents for you to submit. Be sure to check with each school to which you are applying.

If you have any additional questions about financial aid, FinAid.org is a great resource. Of course, you’re always welcome to contact us as well!
