Hi! It's great to see that you're applying to WashU, and seeking a fee waiver is a smart move. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you request a fee waiver from Washington University in St. Louis:

1. Determine your eligibility: WashU typically grants fee waivers to students who demonstrate financial need, are eligible for free/reduced-price lunch, are enrolled in a TRIO program, or have extenuating circumstances that warrant consideration. Even if you're unsure about your eligibility, it's still worth inquiring—reach out to their admissions team directly to explain your situation.

2. Common App or Coalition App: If you're applying through the Common Application or Coalition Application, you can request a fee waiver directly through the platform. Both applications have a section where you can indicate your eligibility for a fee waiver based on your financial situation.

For the Common App:

- In the "Profile" section, navigate to the "Common App Fee Waiver" tab.

- Select the criteria that apply to you, and provide additional details if prompted.

- Your school counselor will receive a notification to confirm your eligibility.

For the Coalition App:

- In the "Profile" section, find the "Application Fee Waiver" submodule.

- Select the criteria that apply to you, and provide additional details if prompted.

- Your school counselor will receive a notification to confirm your eligibility.

3. Reach out to your school counselor: If your school counselor hasn't already been notified by the application platform, inform them that you've requested a fee waiver. They may need to provide documentation or additional information to support your request.

Once your fee waiver request has been submitted, reviewed, and approved, you should be able to complete your application to WashU without paying the fee. Good luck with your application, and I hope this helps!
