Sending Scores
If the score was part of your admissions packet to CSUSM (via an official score sent by ETS directly or a score showing on another CSU transcript), then Admissions noted in your student record that you fulfilled the requirement. If you sent the score within the last month, please wait for it to be processed. If you sent the score more than 30 days prior, you might like to complete the ARR Correction Form

If CSUSM does not have your score, have ETS send an official copy to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment or hand-carry in a sealed, official copy.  To request a score, call (609) 771-7300 or (888) 225-5427, or go to the AP Score College Board website for more information. Scores cost $15. CSUSM’s institution code is 5677.
