Many states use federal and state funding to further reduce the exam fee for students who are eligible for a College Board fee reduction. State policies for the 2021 AP Exams will be posted on this page as soon as each state’s funding plan is finalized for the 2020-21 school year.

For eligibility criteria and procedures, including criteria for schools and districts participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), visit AP Exam Fee Reductions.

College Board and states are working together to provide information about 2021 subsidies in advance of the November 13 final ordering deadline wherever possible, but in some cases states won't be able to finalize their subsidies until later in the school year. Because the unused/canceled exam fee won't be applied this year, students should be encouraged to register for their exams in the fall.
