​Advanced Programs Awards and Recognition
Students can earn awards and recognition for achievements in AP. These academic distinctions are good to include on résumés and college applications. 

DescriptionCriteria
AP ScholarGranted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams
AP Scholar with HonorGranted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams
AP Scholar with DistinctionGranted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams
National AP ScholarGranted to students in the United States who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams
AP International Diploma
Awarded to students who display exceptional achievement across a variety of disciplines. See eligibility requirements.

Calculation Criteria

There are two steps to calculating the awards:

1. The student's Average AP score is determined based on all exams taken this year and in previous years.

2. The student's exam scores are checked to see which ones count toward the various AP Scholar Awards.

  • A student must meet all criteria to be eligible. For example, a student who has a 3.25 AP score average but only received a 3 or higher on three exams will not receive the AP Scholar with Honor Award because the minimum requirement is a score of 3 or higher on four or more exams.
  • Exams taken multiple times only count once: the highest score will be used for the award calculation.
  • The Calculus AB subscore, Music Theory aural subscore, and Music Theory nonaural subscore are not used in the AP Scholar Award calculations.
