International Baccalaureate Fee Waivers

In the wake of the COVID-19 and as a part of the New York State’s Division of Budget spending controls, State Agencies have been ordered to cease the initiation of new contracts or purchase orders for all but essential items and services necessary to protect the health, safety and security of employees and citizens, and to ensure the continuation of high priority operations and services.
While the 2020-21 Enacted Budget included a $5.8 million appropriation for the reimbursement of 2020 AP and IB examination fee subsidies for low-income students, the State Education Department has not received authorization to make these funds available to schools. We will provide new information as we receive it.
Additional questions may be directed to Office of Curriculum and Instruction via email to or via telephone at (518) 474-5922.
