2013 Spring AP, IB, and CIE A & AS Test Fee Waiver

The Arizona Department of Education is receiving federal grant funds to provide partial Advanced Placement (AP) exams, International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, and Cambridge International (CIE) A and/or AS exam fee waivers for AP, IB, and CIE students eligible for the Federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program. Due to a decrease in the amount of federal funds available through this program, for the first time there will need to be a local contribution (which could be covered by the district, school, community, parent or student) of $10 provided towards the final cost for each exam taken by an eligible student.
