Can I get a fee waiver for college applications?

Hey friends! I've been looking at the cost of applying to colleges, and it's adding up pretty quickly. I heard that there are fee waivers available, but I'm not sure if I qualify. How can I find out if I'm eligible for a fee waiver? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! I'm glad you're being proactive about managing the cost of college applications. Yes, fee waivers are available for eligible students, and it's great that you're looking into this option. To be eligible for a fee waiver, you generally need to demonstrate financial need. There are a few ways you can qualify, including being enrolled in or eligible for the Federal Free or Reduced Price Lunch program, receiving public assistance, or living in federally subsidized public housing. In addition to these, you may also qualify if your family's annual income falls within the Income Eligibility Guidelines set by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service. It's important to remember that each college or university may have its own specific requirements for fee waiver eligibility. You can find more information about fee waivers on the College Board website or through your high school counseling office. They can help you determine if you're eligible and assist you in obtaining the necessary documentation. Don't hesitate to reach out to your high school counselor or the admissions offices of the colleges you're interested in for more information. Best of luck with your applications, and I hope you find this information helpful!
