O'Malley proposes waiving AP fees
Gov. Martin O'Malley wants to waive the $86 fee per subject for Advanced Placement tests in Maryland.
The proposal is part of an initiative O'Malley made public Tuesday called "AP Access and Success."
O'Malley is proposing that the state direct $3 million of education funds to cover the cost of AP exams for all students. High school students can earn college credit if they score high enough on the exam.
The plan would be phased in over a two-year period. In the 2011 and 2012 academic years, AP exam fees would be waived for biology, calculus, chemistry, computer science, environmental science and physics. After that, fees for all exams would be waived.
