Most colleges charge an admissions application fee that can range from $35 to $75 or more.
Some colleges waive their fees if you apply online or attend an on-campus admissions event.
Don't let application fees stop you from applying. If you have trouble paying, you may be eligible for a fee waiver. Check with the colleges where you are applying and with your high school counselor.
College Board provides a list of colleges that may waive application fees for students who have received an SAT program fee waiver.
Some colleges may waive your fee if you're eligible for free or reduced-price lunches, or if your family's income is below a certain limit.
