• 2018-2019 Test Fee Reduction

    For more than 15 years, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has supported assessments for low-income students. This support will continue for the AP exams, IB exam and CLEP exam.

    This year, the Legislature increased funding for this important student assistance to $1 million. This will help low-income students and their families; encourage more students to take AP and IB courses. MDE will assist qualified students with fees related to taking AP, CLEP and IB exams. This will save them college tuition; and lead to higher achievement and our goal to make Michigan a Top 10 education state in 10 years. The following process will be in place for the 2018-2019 school year. Please see memo #153-18 for more details
