AP and IB Test Fees for Low-Income Students

Wisconsin public school districts are responsible by law to pay AP and IB exam fees for students that qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. This requirement is found in Wis. Stat. sec. 120.12(22). The full text follows:

Wis. Stat. sec. 120.12(22) Advanced Placement Examinations. Using federal, state, local, or private funds, pay the costs of advanced placement examinations taken by pupils enrolled in the school district who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches in the federal school lunch program under 42 USC 1758.

For AP exams, the amount is a reduced fee. In 2015, AP exams will cost $91 and the College Board will provide a $29 fee reduction for students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. The school forgoes its $9 rebate for the exam. There is no limit to the number of exams that students can take.

For IB, there is no reduced fee, so the school district is responsible for the full cost.
