Coalition Application Offers Fee Waivers to Lower Income Students

The Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success will provide an application fee waiver that applies to most member institutions.* Students will be able to determine their eligibility for the fee waiver by answering a brief series of questions while creating their Coalition profile, which will give an early indication of their ability to qualify for the application fee waiver. Students who receive free or reduced lunch in school, participate in a TRIO program, and/or qualify for fee waivers from the ACT, College Board, and/or NACAC will be eligible for the Coalition application fee waiver. Students who qualify will automatically bypass the payment screen when they submit their Coalition application to a Coalition waiver–participating member school.

Additionally, some Coalition schools will provide institutional fee waivers to students. Students should request information about additional fee waiver opportunities from schools to which they plan to apply.

* In–state residency is required for fee waiver availability at some Coalition member institutions.
