The U.S. Department of Education recently notified states that they now have additional funds to
cover the costs of 2012 AP Exams for eligible low-income students. Previously, federal funding had
been cut such that most low-income students would need to pay $15 per exam for up to three AP Exams,
and $53 per exam for exams beyond three. That restriction has now been removed. However, some states
that previously required low-income students to pay a nominal fee per exam will continue to do so ?
this is a state-specific decision.

Please note that not all states receive federal funding for AP Exam fees. For information about what
funding is available in your state,

If you have students who had opted out of taking the exams due to loss of funding, you may wish to
talk to your school?s AP Coordinator about the possibility of testing these students during the May
23-25 late-testing period. Alternate exams for late testing can still be ordered by U.S. schools
until May 18.

We apologize if the timing of this announcement creates any administrative challenges at your
school. Thank you for all of your efforts to make AP Exams accessible to low-income students.**
