Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Exam Fee Reimbursement

Beginning with the 2017 Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Exam administration, states will no longer be able to secure funding for low-income students' AP and IB exams through the federal AP Test Fee Program.  The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) consolidated approximately 49 programs, including the AP Test Fee Program, into a new Title IV "block grant".  If your school has previously received funding through the AP Test Fee Program, you will need to talk with your principal and/or administration to develop a plan to obtain funding with ESSA.
