College application fee waivers make it easier for a greater number of underrepresented students to apply to college. Students enrolled in or eligible for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) are eligible. Learn more about fee-waiver eligibility requirements, and use this list to find out which colleges already participate. We update the list regularly, and publish the College Application Fee Waiver Directory of Colleges (.pdf/1.35MB) annually to help students connect with colleges that accept application fee waivers. We also encourage students who don’t see a college they’re looking for to contact the college directly.

The College Application Fee Waivers: A Higher Education Guide (.pdf/3.8MB) shares details about the program and tips from participating colleges.
