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 you have participated or are currently participating in one of the following programs: AmeriCorps, CORO Fellows, FAF, Fleet Fellows, GEM, IIE/Fulbright, IIPP, IRT, JSI, Leadership Alliance, McNair, Mellon Mays, NYC Urban Fellows, Peace Corps, PPIA, Questbridge, Truman Fellows, SINSI, U.S. Military, VEF or Yellow Ribbon Program. Proof of program participation will need to be uploaded along with your application.

The fee waiver option is accessible through the payment section of the admission application. If you choose that option, the fee waiver application will become part of your 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 you are denied a fee waiver, you will be required to log back into your application, select your academic term, upload your attachments again on the Additional Information Page and re-submit with payment.
