International Baccalaureate Exam Fee Reimbursement

SEAs may use AP Test Fee program funds to cover a portion of the cost of each approved exam taken by low-income students as follows:  up to $90 for each Diploma Programme test administered by the International Baccalaureate Organization.  For FY 2014, Test Fee program funds may not be used to pay candidate registration fees on behalf of low-income students. Therefore, the candidate registration fees charged by the International Baccalaureate Organization are not allowable costs under this program for FY 2014.


Section 1706 of the authorizing statute requires that grant funds provided under the AP Test Fee program supplement, and not supplant, other non-Federal funds that are available to assist low-income individuals to pay for the cost of advanced placement test fees.
