States get $28M in grants to defray AP exam costs

Updated: Wednesday, August 13, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Education Department is announcing $28.4 million in grants to 40 states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands to reduce the cost of advanced placement exams for low-income students.

The department said the reduced cost will encourage low-income and first-generation students to take the exams. Students who pass the test could earn college credit, reducing the time and cost for a post-secondary degree.

Some students could pay as little as $18 for a test, or less when coupled with other subsidizes. Without the grants, some advanced placement tests cost nearly $100.

The program helps to cover fees for advanced placement tests administered by the College Board, the International Baccalaureate Organization and Cambridge International Examinations.
