Can I put AP Scholar as an Honor?
Answered

So... when I open My AP and open View My Scores, it says "Award: AP Scholar" and that link contains a certificate from CollegeBoard with my name on it. However, it says online that they discontinued the award starting this year. I'm confused.

It should be no problem to include this as an award. If there is space I would write in parentheses (averaged 3.5 on 4 AP exams) or whatever the original award was based on.

Also write in what the actual award was like Int'l AP Scholar, or Canadian AP Scholar, or National AP Scholar. There are many previous awards that have been discontinued.

Good Luck

Yes, you can. It is still a valid award.

Collegeboard discontinued National AP Scholar, and further changes might be made.

I’m pretty sure you can include AP Awards! (I’m including one myself this year).
