Application Fee Waivers

Requests for application fee waivers will only be considered for U.S. citizens or permanent residents on the basis of significant financial hardship, or if an applicant has participated or is currently participating in one of the following programs:

AmeriCorps, BUILD Program, COMPASS, CORO Fellows, FAF, Fleet Fellows, GEM, IIE/Fulbright, IIPP, IMSD, IRT, JSI, Leadership Alliance, LSAMP, MARC, McNair, Mellon Mays, NSF-REU, NYC Urban Fellows, Peace Corps, PPIA, Questbridge, RISE, SINSI, Truman Fellows, U.S. Military, or Yellow Ribbon Program. 

Proof of program participation will need to be uploaded along with the application.

The fee waiver option is accessible through the payment section, will become part of the admission application, and must be submitted by the application deadline. Applicants will be notified of a fee waiver decision within one week after the applications are submitted.

If a fee waiver request is denied, the applicant will be required to log back into the application, select the academic term, upload attachments again on the Additional Information Page, and re-submit with payment.
