How do I find out about college application fee waivers?

I've heard that some students can get fee waivers for college applications, but I'm not sure how to find out if I qualify or how to request one. Does anyone have any advice on this topic? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! I recently went through the college application process with my child, and we learned a lot about fee waivers. College application fee waivers can be a great help for students who are facing financial difficulties. There are a few ways to find out if you qualify and how to request one. First, you should check the college or university's website for their fee waiver policy. Many institutions have a specific form or process for students to request a waiver directly from the admissions office. Second, if you're eligible for an SAT or ACT fee waiver, you may also qualify for college application fees waivers. In this case, your high school counselor can provide you with the necessary forms to apply for college fee waivers from participating colleges. Lastly, organizations like the Common Application, Coalition Application, and the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) offer fee waivers for students who meet certain eligibility criteria. Reach out to your high school counselor for guidance on this process. Best of luck with your college applications!
