Fee Waivers

If you are a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident and feel your financial circumstances or first-generation college student status may qualify you for an application fee waiver, you can request a fee waiver in the application fee waiver section of the transfer application.

You will be asked to select and certify at least one of the following indicators to qualify for a fee waiver:

  • I’m a first-generation college student. Neither of my parents have earned a four-year degree.

  • I’m eligible and/or currently receive Federal Pell Grant financial assistance.

  • My family’s income falls within the Income Eligibility Guidelines set by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.

  • My family receives public assistance.

  • I live in federally subsidized public housing or am homeless.

  • I’m enrolled in a federal, state, or local program that aids students from low-income families (e.g. TRIO programs such as Upward Bound).
