Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Program
Fee Waiver Program for New York

Updated November 8, 2016

Dear AP and IB Coordinators:

The Federal Fee Waiver program for AP and IB for 2017 will most likely be processed differently in 2017 than in the past years. However, the Department of Education has yet to announce to the State Education Agencies whether the grant money will go to the state (as stand- alone grant) or whether it may be rolled into Title money (possibly Title I) as part of a block-grant.

As soon as DoE announces the changes, they will be posted on this site.

Please check frequently for any upcoming announcements.


IMPORTANT NOTICE to Advanced Placement (AP) Coordinators

Schools do not need to submit their College Board AP Exam Invoice nor the Student Roster to the New York State Education Department (NYSED) anymore.

NYSED reserves the right to require additional supporting documentation to confirm that students are eligible to participate in the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program or otherwise meet the federal guidelines for receiving AP Exam Fee Reductions.

NYSED also reserves the right to restrict reimbursing schools that claim fee reductions for non-qualifying students.

This change pertains to AP exams only.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

Schools offering International Baccalaureate (IB) exams to fee waiver eligible students must still send the IB Standard Voucher and the IB Student Roster to NYSED. The International Baccalaureate Organization is funded at $98 each, but registration fee will not be covered for 2015 IB exams.
