Cost of AP Exams?

Hey friends, I’m trying to budget for my junior year and AP exams are a big question mark. Can anyone who's recently taken them fill me in on how much AP exams cost nowadays? Also, is there a difference in fees for taking multiple exams?

Hey there! I can definitely help you out with that. The cost for each AP exam in the 2022-2023 school year was $97 per exam in the U.S., U.S. territories, and Canada, and $127 per exam at schools outside of these areas. So, you'll want to prepare your budget accordingly.

If you’re taking multiple exams, the cost does add up, but there isn't a discount or increased fee for taking more. Each one is its own separate fee. It’s the same cost for each exam regardless of how many you take. Be sure to check with your school though, as they'll have the most current information and sometimes schools might cover part of the cost or offer financial aid options.

I remember helping my kid budget for these just a couple of years ago. It can be a bit of a stretch, especially if you're aiming for several AP courses, but it's such a valuable investment for college credit and preparation if you can manage it. Good luck with your junior year!
