Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Exam Fee Subsidy Program

Massachusetts State Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Fee Subsidy and International Baccalaureate (IB) Program 2020-2021

Update on 2021-2022 AP/IB Low-Income Fee Subsidy coming soon! Please check back later.

AP and IB Exam Fee Subsidies Expanded:

New for the 2021-22 school year, DESE has allocated funding so that the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Exam fee subsidies are now extended to include all income-eligible students from all Massachusetts public schools. The fee subsidy applies to all subjects and reduces the student cost for the exam to $15. As a reminder, Monday, November 15 is the due date for AP coordinators to submit the order for spring 2022 AP exams to avoid an additional late order fee.

Please adhere to College Board policies and procedures for registration. We are working with College Board and our AP program partners on the reimbursement logistics to be in synch with the College Board timeline. Updates on IB and AP will be posted on this page so we encourage you to check back periodically.
