How can I apply for a fee waiver for my application?

 Fee waivers are subject to approval by the Acceptd Support Manager and are granted based on proper documentation, only if provided in advance to the submission of the application. Acceptd maintains a no refund policy. Please allow 48 hours for a response to any fee waiver inquiries.
Note: Acceptd grants up to 5 waivers per applicant only to be used within a single application cycle. Each fee waiver will come with an expiration date.
If you are located outside of the United States, please contact our Support Team to determine the appropriate documentation needed to qualify for a fee waiver(s).
We offer financial assistance to applicants who provide one of the following forms of documentation.
18 and under:
  • College Board SAT or ACT fee waiver documentation. For more information on the College Board fee waiver process, please visit their website.
  • Federal Free or Reduced Price Lunch program (FRPL) documentation.
  • Documentation showing that the school has waived the common applicant fee
19 and older:
  • Most Recent FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR). Must be within 2 years of fee waiver request to be eligible.
  • Unemployment Benefits Statement from the past 90 days.
  • Documentation showing that the school has waived the common applicant fee
Each organization we work with may manage the fee waiver process differently from Acceptd. Please submit a request to our Support Team about the process for the organization(s) you are seeking to apply to at this link: Submit a Request.
