i was in the same situation. i took ap biology in 1990. you need to request the official transcript from college board--they administer the ap, sat and clep. have them send it directly to you school. i believe the cost is $25.
here is the info from the collegeboard:
<h1>grade reporting services</h1>
the grade reporting services listed below are available to students. except for "grades by phone" students can order these services by contacting ap services:

Quote from sarah0119
anyone have experience with taking an ap exam in high school and getting credit from a community college for your score?
my situation is that i took ap english exam in high school ('98, so not 10 years yet). at my school where i got my ba degree, my score gave me 3 generic credits and exemption from engl101. so i didn't actually receive credit for that class. i did take advanced composition (engl102) in my previous degree, but just not the intro class.
now my nursing program of course requires engl101 (and 102) as a co-req, and i am really hoping i don't have to take it. i mean, it seems weird that i will be able to transfer in engl102, but still have to take engl101?
i wasn't even thinking about this, until i tried to register for my fall nursing classes and it forced me to register for engl 101 too. of course i can't find out from my school until who knows when, college closed due to a faculty strike...
