Memo From: Mike Barry, AP Program, The College Board
Re: AP Test Fee Program Funding Restored
The U.S. Department of Education notified states that it has provided the AP Test Fee Program with additional funds to cover the full costs of 2012 AP Exams for eligible low-income students. The funds will allow you to pay for all exams taken by qualifying students in May 2012.
This means that the AP Test Fee Program changes we announced to you on February 2nd, and communicated to AP schools on February 10th will be reversed (with one exception – the College Board fee reduction will remain at $26 per exam):
The U.S. Department of Education is currently reviewing an updated Federal Register notice to allow them to re-open the grant competition for states. In the meantime:
If you have any questions about these changes, please contact Mike Barry at (212) 373-8726 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank the Federal government for its commitment to making AP Exams accessible to low-income students. This funding will allow thousands of additional students the opportunity to demonstrate their college readiness and earn valuable credit and placement.
