College Application Waivers

  • How can I obtain a fee waiver?

    To obtain a fee waiver you must first check with the university to which you are applying to verify that you qualify for a waiver.

    If you do qualify, you will need to follow through with obtaining a fee waiver by submitting to the university documented proof that supports this claim. You can obtain further information about this from the university and/or your high school counselor.

    If you choose the 'request for fee exemption' option on your application's payment page and submit your application without finding out if you qualify (and/or without sending in the supporting documentation to the university), you will still be responsible for paying the fee. You will be contacted and reminded to pay the application fee; if you fail to pay it or have it waived then your application will not be complete and will not be processed. This means you will not be considered for admission to the college or university to which you have applied.

    Contact your counselor to check qualifications and receive paperwork/instructions.
