How to apply for the application fee waiver
Application fee waivers will be granted to a limited number of applicants who can demonstrate financial hardship. Financial hardship can be demonstrated by providing a statement of financial need from a current university or college, or an explanation of other circumstances where $100 would provide a financial burden. The fee waiver request form is found at the end of the application after you submit, instead of payment apply for the waiver. Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
