Payment is due to College Board by June 15, 2022 (postmark deadline)—not at the time of ordering. Schools determine how and when to collect and track exam payment.

2022 AP Fee Assistance Policies by State

College Board provides a $34 fee reduction per AP Exam for eligible students with financial need. Schools are expected to forego their $9 rebate for these students, resulting in a cost of $53 per exam (for international: $83 per exam ($53 for schools in Canada); for AP Seminar or AP Research Exams: $101).

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 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.

College Board and states are working together to provide information about 2022 subsidies in advance of the November 15 final ordering deadline wherever possible, but in some cases, states won't be able to finalize their subsidies until later in the school year.

If Your State Requires Students to Be Enrolled in a Course

Some states require students taking an AP Exam to be enrolled in the corresponding course in order for those students to receive state funding for their exam. Students solely enrolled in an exam only section for a given AP subject won’t receive state funding in this case. For example, students taking AP courses at a virtual school must be enrolled in both the exam only section at the school where they’ll be taking the exam and in a class section for the corresponding course through their virtual school.

If Your State Eliminates Its Subsidy

If your state provided a subsidy for low-income students’ AP Exams in 2021, and the subsidy is eliminated after you’ve submitted your 2022 AP Exam order:

  • For students who choose to still take their exams: The amount that will be calculated on your invoice for these exams will reflect your state’s available funding as of the time the invoice is generated.
  • For students who choose not to take their exams: No exam payment will be owed.

Students’ fee reduction status must be accurately indicated in AP Registration and Ordering in order for fees to be waived.

2022 AP Fee Assistance Policies by State

State policies for the 2022 AP Exams will be posted below as soon as each state’s funding plan is finalized for the 2021-22 school year.

Provided funds are available, 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 $34 per exam. For eligibility criteria, visit AP Exam Fee Reductions.
    • Schools send payment of $53 per exam to College Board and then request reimbursement from the ALSDE.
  • $101 per AP Seminar and AP Research Exam for eligible low-income, public school students qualifying for the College Board fee reduction of $34 per exam.
    • Schools send payment of $101 per AP Seminar and AP Research Exam to College Board and then request reimbursement from the 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:

  • For your invoice to accurately reflect any fee reductions, the AP coordinator must indicate the fee reduction status for each eligible student in AP Registration and Ordering.
    • For each student who is eligible for the College Board fee reduction, check the box for reduced fee next to their name in the student roster.
    • For students who aren't eligible for the fee reduction, no action is needed.
  • Fee reduction status is indicated only once per student, not for each exam.
  • A best practice is to indicate the fee reduction status for each student by the time you submit your exam order, if possible, to ensure you have time to plan for and collect the appropriate exam fees from students. However, if you need more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students' fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2022 (11:59 p.m. ET).

After the exams:

  • Your invoice will be sent to you via email after the late-testing administration. At that point, you can also access and print the invoice through AP Registration and Ordering.
  • Send $53 to College Board for each AP Exam ($101 per AP Seminar and AP Research Exam) per qualifying student.
  • June 15, 2022, is the postmark deadline for payment due to College Board.
  • To request reimbursement from the ALSDE, the school district's AP coordinator or designee must submit a signed copy of the 2022 AP/IB Request for Payment Form to the ALSDE along with a copy of the College Board AP Exam Invoice. The deadline for submission of these documents to the ALSDE is August 1, 2022. A memo was sent out to local superintendents and coordinators on October 6, 2021, with instructions for submission of reimbursement forms to ALSDE.
  • Provided funds are available, ALSDE will reimburse school districts $53 per exam ($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.
  • Reimbursements will be remitted to the central office of the school district.

Arkansas public and homeschooled students must be enrolled in and complete the AP course to receive the state funding for their AP Exams:

  • Arkansas students are only eligible to receive the state subsidies for their AP Exams if they were enrolled in a class section in AP Registration and Ordering and complete the AP course with an appropriately trained teacher.
  • If a student enrolled in a class section is no longer taking the AP course, you'll need to drop the student from the class section in AP Registration and Ordering.
  • If the student still wants to take the exam without taking the class, don't drop the student from a class section; instead, move the student to an exam only section so that the state subsidies will not be applied.
  • For more information on dropping or moving students from a class section in AP Registration and Ordering, please refer to page 74 of the AP Coordinator's Manual, Part 1.

Specific instructions for virtual school and homeschooled students:

  • Students taking AP courses at a virtual public school such as Virtual Arkansas must be enrolled in AP Registration and Ordering in both the exam only section at the school where they'll be taking the exam and a class section for the corresponding course through their virtual school. Virtual schools must ensure that their AP teachers enroll all their students in AP Registration and Ordering.
  • To receive the Arkansas state subsidies, homeschooled students also must be enrolled in AP Registration and Ordering in both the exam only section at the school where they'll be taking the exam and a class section for the corresponding course through the school.
  • Virtual and homeschooled students must also complete the course with an appropriately trained teacher to be eligible to receive the state subsidies for their exams. If a virtual or home school student enrolled in a class section is no longer taking the AP course, you’ll need to drop the student from the class section. For more information on dropping or moving students from a class section, please refer to page 74 of the AP Coordinator's Manual, Part 1.
  • Any virtual or homeschooled students who are not enrolled in a class section in AP Registration and Ordering will not have the Arkansas state subsidies applied for their exams. This means that the physical school where any unenrolled virtual or homeschooled students take their exams will be charged rather than the state.
  • For more information on enrolling virtual or homeschooled students, visit Homeschooled, Independent Study, and Virtual School Students and Students from Other Schools or see the AP Coordinator's Manual, Part 1.

New Funding to Increase Access to AP

The California State Legislature recently appropriated $400 million to increase the number of students graduating from high school who are eligible to enroll at UC and CSU campuses. The A-G Completion Improvement Grant Program provides funding to public schools to expand access to qualifying A-G courses for college admissions. All AP and Pre-AP courses are approved A-G courses, so this funding may be used for:

  • AP Exam fees for low-income students
  • Professional learning for your AP educators, like this new workshop: Achieving Equity in AP
  • Expanding your AP course offerings, like adding AP Seminar, which is accepted as an English credit in your state
  • Expanding or starting the Pre-AP Program to give more students the opportunity to develop skills needed for AP and college-level coursework

To utilize this funding, district plans must be submitted and approved by your local school board by April 1, 2022.

New this Year: Starting with 2022 AP Exams, the Minnesota Department of Education has changed from a school reimbursement process to a direct-billing arrangement with College Board.

What this Means:

  • In past years, schools in Minnesota have paid College Board full price for AP Exams and then applied to the Minnesota Department of Education to receive exam fee reimbursement.
  • For 2022 AP Exams, the Minnesota Department of Education will pay College Board directly for the AP Exam fees being covered by the state.
  • The Minnesota state subsidies for 2022 AP Exams will be deducted from each school’s invoice and billed directly to the Minnesota Department of Education instead.
  • Note that Minnesota schools still must complete and submit the AP Program Application for Reimbursement 2021-22 to the Minnesota Department of Education. AP coordinators must also submit a copy of their AP Exam invoice to the Minnesota Department of Education. For full instructions, please review the “What Schools Must Do” section below.

The state of South Carolina will pay for AP Exams for two categories of students enrolled in an AP course at a South Carolina public school who then take the corresponding AP Exam: fee-reduced students and standard-fee students.

Fee-reduced students are students who qualify for the College Board fee reduction of $34 per exam. For public schools, fee-reduced students enrolled in the corresponding AP course, the state of South Carolina will pay:

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

  • $87 per AP Exam (except AP Seminar and AP Research Exams)
  • $135 per AP Seminar 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.

What Schools Must Do
Your school's AP coordinator must take the following steps.

Before the exams:

  • For your invoice to accurately reflect any fee reductions, the AP coordinator must indicate the fee reduction status for each eligible student in AP Registration and Ordering as follows:
    • For each student who is eligible for the College Board fee reduction, check the box for reduced fee next to their name in the student roster.
    • For students who aren’t eligible for the College Board fee reduction, no action is needed.
    • Once a student’s fee reduction status is marked as reduced or left as standard in AP Registration and Ordering, the South Carolina state subsidies will automatically be calculated and applied for all exams taken by students who are enrolled in the corresponding AP course.
  • Fee reduction status is indicated only once per student, not for each exam.
  • A best practice is to indicate the fee reduction status for each student by the time you submit your exam order. However, if you need more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students' fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2022 (11:59 p.m. ET).

Specific instructions for virtual school students, homeschooled students, and private school students:

  • South Carolina students are only eligible to receive the state funding if they were enrolled in the corresponding AP course at a South Carolina public school.
  • Because the state of South Carolina will only pay for AP Exams if the student took the corresponding AP course, the following steps are critical to ensure that these students receive the South Carolina state funding for their exams:
    • Students taking AP courses at a virtual school such as VirtualSC must be enrolled in both the exam only section at the school where they’ll be taking the exam and a class section for the corresponding course through their virtual school. Virtual schools must ensure that their AP teachers enroll all their students in AP Registration and Ordering.
    • Any students who are not enrolled in a class section for the corresponding course 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.
  • For more information on enrolling students taking AP in virtual schools, visit Homeschooled, Independent Study, and Virtual School Students and Students from Other Schools or see the AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 1.
  • The state will also pay for a homeschooled or private school student if they take the AP course and exam at a South Carolina public school. These students must be enrolled in the class section for the corresponding AP course at the public school to receive the state funding.

After the exams:

  • Your invoice will be sent to you via email after the late-testing administration. At that point, you can also access and print the invoice through AP Registration and Ordering.
  • 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 and any additional fees due, send payment to College Board.
  • June 15, 2022, is the postmark deadline for payment due to College Board.
  • Email a copy of your school’s invoice to Leslie Dawes, SC Dept. of Ed., at LDawes@ed.sc.gov by June 15, 2022.
  • If it is necessary to email College Board because of a problem with an invoice, please make sure to cc Leslie Dawes at LDawes@ed.sc.gov.

What Schools Must Do
Your school's AP coordinator must take the following steps.

Before the exams:

  • For your invoice to accurately reflect any fee reductions, the AP coordinator must indicate the fee reduction status for each eligible student in AP Registration and Ordering.
    • For each student who is eligible for the College Board fee reduction, check the box for reduced fee next to their name in the student roster.
    • For students who aren't eligible for the fee reduction, no action is needed.
  • Fee reduction status is indicated only once per student, not for each exam.
  • A best practice is to indicate the fee reduction status for each student by the time you submit your exam order, if possible, to ensure you have time to plan for and collect the appropriate exam fees from students. However, if you need more time to verify this information, the deadline to indicate students' fee reduction status in AP Registration and Ordering is April 30, 2022 (11:59 p.m. ET).

After the exams:

  • Your invoice will be sent to you via email after the late-testing administration. At that point, you can also access and print the invoice through AP Registration and Ordering.
  • Send $53 to College Board for each AP Exam ($101 per AP Seminar Exam and AP Research Exam) per qualifying student.
  • June 15, 2022, is the postmark deadline for payment due to College Board.
