New registrations after November 15 are $214 plus $110 per subject; new registrations after January 15th are $459 plus $110 per subject. Change and/or drop fees per subject are $35 from November 15 – January 15 and $140 after January 15, plus $160 if the course dropped is the only IB course for which the student is registered.“
