Fee Waiver Eligibility & Instructions
If your total family income is $60,000 or less, and the application fee presents a hardship for you and your family, you may qualify for a fee waiver. To request a fee waiver, ask your high school guidance counselor, principal, or other school official to fill out the SAT Request for Waiver of College Application Fee form or to submit an official letter on your behalf. You may assume the waiver has been granted unless you hear otherwise from us.
The form, or official letter, should be mailed to:
