AP/IB Exam Fee Program
The PWR of the AP/IB Exam Fee Program
Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses are offered to high school students and reflect the information found in a college-level course. Students taking such courses have the option to take an Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate exam following completion of the course. Some colleges, including all state institutions in Colorado pursuant to Colorado Commission on Higher Education policy, offer credit based on a student's Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam score. Students who take an Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam must pay an exam fee.
The Accelerated College Opportunity Exam Fee Grant Program (AP/IB Exam Fee Program) is intended to increase the number of eligible students who take Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams and receive scores for which college academic credit is awarded by providing funds to high schools, to pay all or a portion of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam fees on behalf of eligible students*.
*"Eligible student” means a student enrolled in a high school who is a low-income individual, as defined in 20 U.S.C. sec. 9832(3) and who is planning to take one or more advanced placement exams.
