  • FY 2013 AP Exam Fee and IB Payment Changes

    The Department expects to award approximately $28,727,000 in new grants under this program. Based on the anticipated number of applications and other available information, the Department expects this amount to be sufficient to pay all but $10 of the cost of each advanced placement exam taken by low-income students.

    Accordingly, SEAs may use AP Test Fee program funds to cover a portion of the cost of each approved advanced placement exam taken by low-income students as follows:

  • (a) up to $45 for each Advanced Placement test administered by the College Board;
  • (b) up to $94 for each Diploma Programme test administered by the International Baccalaureate Organization.
  • For FY 2013, AP Test Fee program funds may not be used to pay advanced placement test candidate registration fees on behalf of low-income students. Therefore, the candidate registration fees charged by the International Baccalaureate Organization are not allowable costs under this program for FY 2013.
