How to ask for fee waivers for college applications?

Hello, everyone! I'm a junior and I'm concerned about the costs of applying to multiple colleges. How do I go about requesting fee waivers, and what are the requirements to be eligible for them? Thanks for any advice!

Hello! It's great to see that you're planning ahead for your college applications. Requesting fee waivers can certainly help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with applying to multiple colleges. To be eligible for fee waivers, you typically need to demonstrate financial need. This can be done through various means such as being part of a low-income family, receiving free or reduced-price lunch at school, or participating in certain federal, state, or local assistance programs. To request a fee waiver, you can start by speaking with your high school counselor. They should be able to guide you through the process and may even have forms or resources available for you. Additionally, you can reach out to the colleges you're interested in applying to and inquire about their fee waiver process. Some colleges may have their own forms, while others may accept the NACAC or College Board fee waiver forms. Make sure to keep track of deadlines and submit your requests early to ensure that you can take advantage of these fee waivers. Best of luck!
