• 2014-15 Advanced Placement (AP) Test Fee Reduction Grant  

    For the past 13 years the Michigan Department of Education has received the AP Test Fee Reduction Grant. This grant pays for AP tests and the International Baccalaureate (IB) tests and registration fees for low-income students.

    The funding for the AP Test Fee and Incentive Programs allocation will be approximately $28 million. Given the current budget climate, this is a comparatively positive outcome that attests to the value of the federal AP funding in boosting low-income students’ college readiness and reducing their college costs.

    The Michigan Legislature has appropriated $250,000 in the budget to allocate a maximum of $15 per AP test for students who qualify for test fee reductions.  Please see this memo, from March 2015, for further information.
