Using ACT fee waiver code to send scores?

Hey everyone! I was just wondering if anyone knows how to use the ACT score send fee waiver code? I'm trying to save some money while applying to colleges, and I've heard about this waiver, but I'm not sure how to use it. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello! It's great that you're trying to save money during the college application process. To use the ACT score send fee waiver code, you'll need to follow these steps:

1. First, check your eligibility for the waiver. You can qualify for the ACT fee waiver if you meet certain income or enrollment-based criteria. Generally, you're eligible if you're enrolled in a Federal Free or Reduced Price Lunch program, or if your family's income falls within the guidelines set by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.

2. If you're eligible, talk to your high school counselor. They can provide you with the necessary fee waiver code. You'll need this code to waive the fees when sending your ACT scores to colleges.

3. Once you have the waiver code, go to the ACT website (www.act.org) and sign in to your account. If you don't have an account yet, you'll need to create one.

4. Once logged in, navigate to the "Send Your Scores" section of your account.

5. From there, you can select the colleges you want to send your ACT scores to. Keep in mind that you can send up to four free score reports, even without a fee waiver code. If you're planning to send more than four score reports, you'll need the waiver code.

6. During the process of selecting the colleges and submitting your score reports, there will be a section where you can input the fee waiver code provided by your high school counselor. Enter the code and verify that your total fees have been adjusted to waive the fee for sending the score reports.

7. Double-check the college names and other information before finalizing the transaction, and then proceed to submit the requests.

And there you have it! With these steps, you can utilize the ACT score send fee waiver and save some money during the application process. Good luck with your college applications!
