Fee waiver for UC applications?

I just realized that applying to multiple UC schools can get expensive. Is there any way to get a fee waiver for UC applications, and if so, what's the process to apply for it?

Yes, there's a fee waiver available for UC applications, and it can cover up to four UC schools. To apply for a fee waiver, you'll need to follow these steps:

1. Begin the UC application: Start filling out the University of California application on the UC application portal.

2. Fee waiver section: When you reach the "About You" section, there will be a part called "Application Fees and Fee Waivers." Here, you'll see various questions pertaining to your family's income, the number of family members, and your eligibility for free/reduced lunch at school.

3. Complete the fee waiver questions: Honestly answer these questions, and if you meet the requirements, your application will automatically reflect the fee waiver for up to four UC schools. Remember that you need to provide accurate information because your fee waiver eligibility might get verified later.

4. Review & submit your application: Continue completing the rest of your application as usual. When submitting your application, ensure the fee waiver is applied before finalizing your submission.

Make sure to submit your UC application by the deadline, which is typically November 30th for most applicants. If you need further assistance, consider reaching out to your school counselor or the UC application support team. Good luck!
