The Unique Access Codes will be loaded in HAC at least one day PRIOR to the posting of results in the state Student Portal.

  • located on any past Confidential Student Report (CSR) in the bottom right corner of the CSR, and
  • located in the Home Access Center (HAC).

Please utilize the letters listed below to access state testing results.
