EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon is lending a helping hand to students who can’t afford to take advanced placement tests.
Low-income students can take AP tests for a discounted price, thanks to a federal grant. With new funding the state legislature approved last year, those students will be able to take the $89 tests for free. For other students the tests will cost $56 each.
State lawmakers approved the extra $2.6 million for two years.
