2015 AP Exam Fee Increase

The “suggested “AP Exam fee for 2015 is increasing $2.00 to $91.00 (up from $89.00 in 2014).  The good news is that schools will not retain $9.00 of the fee, a $1.00 increase from the $8.00 of the past several years.  We encourage schools to plan accordingly when setting their exam fees and communicating to their school community.

The College Board provides a $29 fee reduction per exam for students with financial need. Schools are expected to forgo their $9 rebate for these students, resulting in a cost of $53 per exam.   This does not include any federal/state/district subsidies that have been announced late (March/April) in recent years.

We found out about the exam fee increase at the AP Conference in Philly July, 10th 2014.  Here’s a photo of a page from materials some AP Coordinators received that a pre-conference workshop.
