Teacher resources and teacher professional development

Fee Reduction Program


This year, Advanced Placement (AP) Exams taken by qualified low-income New Mexico students have been subsidized through two funding sources.

  • The College Board fee reduction per exam for students with financial need
  • The state of New Mexico legislative appropriation to NMHU, which is through AP-NM’s Research and Public Service Project (RPSP).

The College Board fee reduction for qualifying students to $31 per exam. It is encouraged that schools administering exams to low-income students using this service also forego the $9 administration fee.

The state budget proposal includes funding for test fee waivers for low income students.

Funding has been secured, the total cost for a student that qualifies for the test fee reduction will be $3.00

AP Calendar

Spring before starting an AP course
It’s time to start thinking about which AP courses grab your interest, and how they might start you on the right path to college and career success. Use this website to learn more about the AP Program, and discuss your plans with your parents, teachers and AP Coordinator.

Some AP teachers require that you complete work during the summer months to prepare for their courses. For example, AP English Literature and Composition might start you off with a reading list of great novels and plays. Make sure you complete these assignments so that you're up to speed when the classes begin.

Talk to your AP teachers or AP Coordinator about taking the AP Exams. Contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Coordinator at your school if you will need testing accommodations.
