Federal & State AP Exam Fee Assistance

The fee for each AP Exam in 2016 is $92, with schools retaining an $9 rebate per exam. For each AP Exam taken by students from low-income families, the College Board will provide a $30 fee reduction per exam.

How does a student qualify for the College Board's fee reduction?

The College Board follows the economic-need guidelines created by the federal government. See Fee Reductions for AP Exams for information about eligibility criteria and the procedure for claiming College Board fee reductions for AP Exams. All students who meet the eligibility criteria are entitled to the College Board's fee reduction for each AP Exam they take.

What additional federal and state fee reductions are available for students in my state?

Most states provide additional fee reductions for students in financial need. Each state determines whether or not students qualifying for the College Board's fee reduction are eligible for additional fee reductions through federal and state grants.

State-specific fee reduction information will be available in spring 2016.
