4.2.13 Advanced Placement (AP) Test Fee Reimbursement Program

Advanced Placement (AP) Test Fee Reimbursement Program

Advanced Placement (AP) is a rigorous high school course that prepares students for college coursework and allows them the opportunity to earn college credit. SFUSD offers over 30 different AP courses.  To earn college credit, students take the AP exam in the appropriate subject. The Office of College and Career Readiness facilitates the Advanced Placement Test Fee Reimbursement Program for low-income high school students.  The district is interested in removing the financial barriers that prevent many low-income students in comprehensive high schools from taking the Advanced Placement course tests.

Low-income students who are enrolled in an Advanced Placement (AP) class and plan to take the end-of-course AP exam are eligible to participate in the AP Test Fee Reimbursement Program. 

The AP Coordinator from each high school will let you know the reduced fee amount you must pay for the exam.  Private and Charter schools are not eligible for this program.

The Office of College and Career Readiness facilitates the payment of these fees for each school. If you have any questions, first ask the AP coordinator at your school site or call the Office of College and Career Readiness at (415) 379-7744
