Exam Fees

  • The Ventricular Foundation offer fellowships for underrepresented high school students to help cover the costs of exams, exam materials, and application fees for college and graduate school. AP Exams - $53/exam (after discount code). Many High School students are enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Taking “college level curricula” not only prepare high school students for university, but also grant them the opportunity to obtain college credit upon successful completion of the course. To obtain college credits, students must take the AP exam for their respective class and obtain a score of 3 or higher (on a scale of 1-5) . These exams are optional, but some low-income students do not take these exams because of funding issues. There are no fee waivers readily available for students as there are for SAT/ACT college entrance exams. However, there is a discount code that reduces the exam fee from $90 to $53 for low income students. The Ventricular Foundation can help fund the exam fee for low income students who are prepared to take the exam and who meet eligibility criteria. Learn more
