In 2014 the fee to take an AP exam from the College Board was $89. Source: College Board website.
ExamThe fee for each AP Exam is $89. The school normally retains $8 of that fee as a rebate to help with administrative costs.
It cost $89 to take an AP exam at Walter Johnson High School and Seneca Valley High School in 2014.
But, at Springbrook High School it cost $92.56 to take an AP exam. Why? Because Springbrook High School added a fake "processing fee" to the cost of the AP exam. That puts a cool $2,500 into the principal's slush fund for that school. (Feb 2014 Audit of Springbrook Principal's school accounts.)
Note that high schools already get $8 per test as an administration fee to cover the cost of exam proctors. Apparently, that wasn't enough for Springbrook High School and so they tacked on their own fake "processing fee."
