How do I ask for a fee waiver for college applications?

Hi all! I'm a junior and I'm starting to think about the cost of applying to college. I've heard that you can get fee waivers for college applications, but I'm not sure how to go about asking for one. Can anyone provide some guidance on this? Thanks for your help!

Hello! It's great that you're thinking ahead about the college application process. To request a fee waiver for college applications, you can follow these steps: 1. Check your eligibility: Most colleges require that you meet certain criteria, such as being part of a low-income family, participating in a free or reduced-price lunch program, or being enrolled in a federal TRIO program. 2. Speak with your high school counselor: Your counselor is a valuable resource and can guide you through the fee waiver process. They may also have access to specific fee waiver forms or codes for the colleges you're applying to. 3. Complete the fee waiver request form: Many colleges use the Common Application or Coalition Application, both of which have fee waiver request forms built-in. Submit the form along with your application, and the college will review your request. Remember to be honest about your financial situation, and good luck with your applications!
