Federal and State Funding for AP Exams

Many states use federal and state funding to further reduce the exam fee for students who are eligible for a College Board fee reduction. For reference, you can view the 2019 exam fee assistance policies for each state. State policies for 2020 will be posted as soon as each state’s funding plan is finalized.

View 2020 AP Exam Fee Assistance Policies by State

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

For more information on the federal funding options available for states and districts, visit Changes to AP Federal Funding Under ESSA.

New! Students and parents may be concerned about ordering AP Exams if their state’s 2020 funding plan hasn’t been finalized by the time students need to register for AP Exams. Although College Board and states are working together to provide information about 2020 subsidies in advance of the November 15 final order deadline whenever possible, in some cases, states won’t be able to finalize their subsidies until later in the school year. If this is the case in your state, you may refer students and parents to your state’s 2019 funding policy for reference. However, please note that your state’s 2019 funding policy does not guarantee that the same state funding will be available again for 2020.

The AP Program will post state subsidy information below as soon as each state finalizes their 2020 funding plan.

If Your State Eliminates its Subsidy

If your state provided a subsidy for AP Exams in 2019, and the subsidy is eliminated for 2020 by the time your school’s 2020 AP Exam invoice is generated, the AP Program will waive any unused/canceled exam fees incurred for students eligible for a College Board fee reduction who decide not to test. Students’ fee reduction status must be accurately indicated in AP Registration and Ordering for the $40 per exam unused/canceled exam fee to be waived.

If an exam has been ordered for a student who is eligible for the College Board AP Exam fee reduction and the student decides to take the exam even if a state subsidy isn’t announced, the school invoice would still reflect the College Board fee reduction.

Cases in Which Cancellation Fees Will Not be Waived

Exams won’t be eligible for a waiver of the unused/canceled exam fee in:

  1. States that didn’t provide a subsidy in 2019.
  2. States where alternative types of funding that could be used for AP Exams were available in 2019, but the state did not provide a dedicated subsidy per exam.
  3. States that provided a subsidy in 2019 and provide one again in 2020.

2020 AP Fee Assistance Policies by State

The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) will reimburse public schools:

  • $53 per AP Exam for eligible low-income public school students qualifying for the College Board fee reduction of $32 per exam. For eligibility criteria, visit AP Exam Fee Reductions. Schools will need to send payment of $53 per exam to College Board and then request reimbursement from ALSDE.
  • $101 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam for eligible low-income public school students qualifying for the College Board fee reduction of $32 per exam. Schools send payment of $101 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam to College Board and then request reimbursement from ALSDE.

The final fee for all AP Exams, including AP Seminar and AP Research Exams, for a qualifying student is $0 after reimbursement.

What Schools Must Do

Your school's AP coordinator must take the following steps.

Before the exams:

  • Indicate each student’s fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering. This replaces bubbling in students’ fee reduction status on their answer sheets.
  • For your invoice to accurately reflect any fee reductions, the AP coordinator must indicate “Reduced” in the AP Fee Status column of the student roster in AP Registration and Ordering for each student who qualifies for a fee reduction.
  • It’s recommended that the AP coordinator indicate the fee reduction status for AP students taking exams before submitting their school’s AP Exam order, so they know as early in the school year as possible the fees that need to be collected from AP students. However, if the AP coordinator needs more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students’ fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2020 (11:59 p.m. ET). Students’ fee reduction status must be accurately indicated in AP Registration and Ordering to ensure accuracy of the final invoice.

After the exams:

  • AP coordinators no longer need to generate the final invoice. The invoice is directly generated by AP Registration and Ordering and emailed to the AP coordinator after the late-testing administration ends.
  • Send $53 to College Board for each AP Exam (except AP Seminar and AP Research Exams) per qualifying student, and $101 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam per qualifying student.
  • June 15, 2020 is the postmark deadline for payment due to College Board.
  • In order to receive reimbursement from the ALSDE, the school district’s AP coordinator or designee must submit a signed copy of the 2020 AP/IB Request for Payment Form to the ALSDE along with a copy of the College Board AP Exam Invoice. A memo was sent out to local superintendents and coordinators on September 11, 2019 with instructions for submission of reimbursement forms to ALSDE: https://www.alsde.edu/sites/memos/Memoranda/FY19-2142.pdf.
  • ALSDE will reimburse school districts $53 per exam (except AP Seminar and AP Research Exams) per qualifying student, and $101 per AP Seminar and AP Research Exam per qualifying student, after schools have paid College Board and the district AP coordinator/designee has submitted copies of the invoices and the reimbursement forms to the state.

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NC DPI) will pay for AP Exams for two categories of public school students enrolled in an AP course who then take the respective AP Exam: fee-reduced students and standard-fee students. Please note that NC DPI will not pay for AP Exams taken by private school students, homeschooled students, or students who were not enrolled in the AP course.

Fee-reduced students are students who qualify for the College Board fee reduction of $32 per exam. For public school, fee-reduced students enrolled in the corresponding AP course, NC DPI will pay:

  • $53 per AP Exam (except AP Seminar and AP Research Exams)
  • $101 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam

The final fee for any AP Exam (including AP Seminar and AP Research Exams) for qualifying fee-reduced students is $0.

Standard-fee students are students who do not qualify for the College Board fee reduction. For public school, standard-fee students enrolled in the corresponding AP course, NC DPI will pay:

  • $94 per AP Exam (except AP Seminar and AP Research Exams)
  • $142 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam

The final fee for any AP Exam (including AP Seminar and AP Research Exams) for qualifying standard-fee students is $0.

North Carolina Rebate

The fee for each AP Exam is $94, or $142 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam, with the school normally retaining $9 of that fee as a rebate to help with administrative costs. Given that NC DPI pays for all AP Exams fees, public schools in NC no longer collect this fee from students. Therefore, NC DPI has agreed to pay for the $9 rebate per exam for standard-fee students. In September 2020, your school will receive a rebate check from the College Board equal to the number of your standard-fee used exams multiplied by $9 per exam. For example, if you have 100 standard-fee used exams, your school will receive a rebate check in September 2020 for $900.

What Schools Must Do

Your school's AP coordinator must take the following steps.

Before the exams:

Indicate Student Fee Reduction Status

  • Indicate each student’s fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering. This replaces bubbling in students’ fee reduction status on their answer sheets.
  • For your invoice to accurately reflect the appropriate fee reductions, the AP coordinator must indicate “Reduced” in the AP Fee Status column of the student roster in AP Registration and Ordering for each student who qualifies for the College Board fee reduction. The AP coordinator should leave the AP Fee Status as the default “Standard” for students who do not qualify for the College Board fee reduction.
  • It’s recommended that the AP coordinator indicate the fee reduction status for AP students taking exams before submitting their school’s AP Exam order. However, if the AP coordinator needs more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students’ fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2020 (11:59 p.m. ET). Students’ fee reduction status must be accurately indicated in AP Registration and Ordering to ensure accuracy of the final invoice.

Indicate Student Course Enrollment Status

  • North Carolina public school students are only eligible to receive the state funding if they were enrolled in the corresponding AP course.
  • Students who are enrolled in an exam only section in AP Registration and Ordering will not receive the state subsidies and schools will need to pay College Board for their exams.
  • For virtual school students, the virtual school must become a recognized virtual provider through the AP Course Audit, then make sure to enroll all students taking the AP course in a class section in AP Registration and Ordering. As long as the virtual school enrolls these students as taking the course, the system will automatically apply the state subsidies for the corresponding AP Exams. If the virtual school fails to enroll the students, they will be considered “Exam Only” in the system and will not receive the state subsidies for their exams.
  • For private school, homeschool, IB, or self-study students who did not take the corresponding AP course, the AP coordinator should indicate these students as “Exam Only” in AP Registration and Ordering.

After the exams:

  • AP coordinators no longer need to generate the final invoice. The invoice is directly generated by AP Registration and Ordering and emailed to the AP coordinator after the late-testing administration ends.
  • College Board will bill NC DPI directly for its share of the qualifying students' AP Exam fees.
  • AP coordinators must send payment to College Board for any ancillary fees incurred (unused/canceled exam fees, late fees not covered by NCDPI), as well as for exams for homeschooled students, private school students, or students who were not enrolled in the corresponding AP course.
  • June 15, 2020 is the postmark deadline for any payment owed to College Board.
  • It is not necessary to send a copy of your school’s invoice to NC DPI.

Once a student’s fee reduction status is set as either “Standard” or “Fee-Reduced”, the South Carolina state subsidies will automatically be applied.
  • It’s recommended that the AP coordinator indicate the fee reduction status for AP students taking exams before submitting their school’s AP Exam order. However, if the AP coordinator needs more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students’ fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2020 (11:59 p.m. ET). Students’ fee reduction status must be accurately indicated in AP Registration and Ordering to ensure accuracy of the final invoice.

Specific instructions for students taking AP courses at virtual schools:

  • Virtual schools must ensure that their AP teachers enroll all of their students in AP Registration and Ordering.
  • Because the state of South Carolina will only pay for AP Exams if the student took the corresponding AP course, this step is critical to ensure that these students receive the South Carolina state funding for their exams.
  • Any students who are not enrolled by the virtual school will not receive the South Carolina state funding for their exams. This means that the physical school where any unenrolled virtual school students take their exams will be charged rather than the state.

After the exams:

  • AP coordinators no longer need to generate the final invoice. The invoice is directly generated by AP Registration and Ordering and emailed to the AP coordinator after the late-testing administration ends.
  • College Board will bill the state directly for its share of the qualifying students' AP Exam fees in each category. For AP Exams taken by students not enrolled in the corresponding AP course, send payment to College Board.
  • June 15, 2020 is the postmark deadline for any payment owed to College Board.
  • You must provide a copy of your school’s invoice to the South Carolina Department of Education by June 15, 2020. Email a PDF copy of your school’s invoice to Leslie Dawes at LDawes@ed.sc.gov.
