How do I request a fee waiver for college applications?

Hello, I've heard that it's possible to request a fee waiver for college application fees, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Can you explain the process and the requirements for obtaining a fee waiver? Thank you!

Hello! I'm glad you're considering applying for a fee waiver for your college applications. The process is quite simple, and I'm happy to help guide you through it. First, you'll want to check if you're eligible for a fee waiver. Common eligibility criteria include financial need, participation in programs like Upward Bound or AVID, receiving free or reduced-price lunch, and being a first-generation college student. Different colleges may have their own criteria, so it's essential to check with each institution you're applying to. To request a fee waiver, you can start by speaking with your high school counselor. They should be able to provide you with the necessary forms and guidance on the process. If you're using the Common Application or Coalition Application, there are sections in the application where you can request a fee waiver, and your counselor will need to verify your eligibility. Remember to allow enough time for your counselor to process your request, and don't hesitate to reach out to the colleges directly if you have any questions about their fee waiver policies. Best of luck with your applications!
