A List Of Colleges That Are Free To Apply To.

<p>During the past week I’ve gotten the last minute panic attacks accompanied by the frenetic thoughts of trying to find safety schools to apply to. Unfortunately, I don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on applications to colleges I will never likely attend, so I found an alternative. I started searching for colleges through the CollegeBoard MatchMaker and compiled a list of colleges that are completely free to apply to, or wave the fee once an applicant applies online.</p>

<p>I hope this helps some of you like it helped me! :)</p>

Almost 9 years later…seems like time for an update…anyone?

Thanks, this is great!

I believe Oberlin’s college of the arts and sciences (not music program) is free to apply to

It is, my daughter recently applied.


Most of these colleges require your test scores to be sent and/or the CSS profile so they’re not fully free to apply to. Colby College and UChicago (free only if you apply for financial aid) allow self-reported scores

This is awesome. Last update was in 2014, I’ll keep a running list myself if I find any free-to-apply’s.


still great stuff to get started. thx.

Thank for sharing college list. Very helpful and informative. Please post more informative information.
