Fee Waivers: Undergraduate applicants may request a college application fee waiver on the basis of family financial hardship using either the NACAC form or the SAT Fee Waiver form. Please follow the instructions on the College Board or the NACAC website to obtain either form and bring it to your guidance counselor. The criteria are listed on both sites.
Before completing your online application, you must email a scanned copy of the waiver form to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 718 636-3670 with a cover sheet saying "Attention: Application Fee Waiver Request". You will be emailed a one-time use waiver code to use on your online application once your fee waiver request is received and approved. Make sure you print information clearly and legibly on the forms. If faxing the form, you must include an email address to which the fee waiver code can be emailed. Failure to do so will prevent the processing of your request.
Please allow up to five business days for the emailed requests and ten business days for faxed requests to be processed. The data you provide may be checked against the FAFSA. The application fee waiver code can only be used once and will be assigned to a specific applicant. Attempts to share the code will result in loss of fee waiver and possible withdrawal of your application. Please note that only the online application fee can be waived; we are not able to waive the Slideroom visual portfolio submission fee.
International and graduate students are not eligible for fee waivers.
Please email email@example.com if you have questions about fee waivers.
