SUBJECT:  2014 Advanced Placement Exam Fee Reduction Information

The College Board has announced that the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Fee Reduction for low-income students will be $26 per exam for the 2014 exam administration.

This fee reduction is for students from low-income families that meet the eligibility criteria.  This fee reduction amount is the same as 2013.  The AP Exam fee for 2014 did not increase from 2013, and once again will be $89, with schools retaining an $8 rebate per exam.  For low-income students, the $8 rebate is waived, resulting in an exam fee of $55 per exam for low-income students.
