Application fee waivers are accepted in cases of financial hardship. In order to waive an application fee, you will need to provide our office with evidence that the student is on a free or reduced lunch program. We will also accept evidence of eligibility for state or federal aid like SNAP benefits, Medicaid or Pell Grants, or fee waivers from programs such as Upward Bound, which will send a letter for the student. We are aware that there are other educational and governmental programs that provide assistance that are not listed here. If your student can provide proof of recent financial need, you can email us at email@example.com to see if it can be applied as a fee waiver.
Help us ensure your students' application materials are received and reviewed as quickly as possible by submitting transcripts and test scores electronically. The Office of Admissions accepts transcripts through a variety of services, including Triand, Parchment, eScript, and Clearinghouse. You can also send transcripts directly to the Office of Admissions by using the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
