The exam fee subsidies for May 2018 AP/IB exams will be $24 per AP/IB exam taken by eligible students.
Historically, there has been a state subsidy of $30 per AP/IB exam taken by
eligible students, plus a federal subsidy ($16 per eligible AP exam, $65 per
eligible AP Capstone Exam, $65 per eligible IB exam). The federal subsidy was
eliminated with the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Therefore, LEAs should plan on receiving only a state subsidy in the amount of
$24 per exam taken by eligible students.
