BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota high school students can now take at least one Advanced Placement test at no cost.

The plan was announced Monday by state School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler and state Sen. Tim Flakoll.

The Advanced Placement program offers college-level courses at high schools. Students who complete requirements can earn college credit without paying tuition. Tests normally cost about $90 each, or about $60 for low-income students.

The Legislature last year approved $1.25 million to broaden Advanced Placement coursework opportunities for North Dakota students.

Students from low-income families may now take as many as four Advanced Placement exams at no charge during their high school careers. All other students may take one exam at no charge, and as many as three additional tests at a 50 percent discount.
