Undergraduate Application Fee Waiver


Purchase College cannot provide fee waivers for applications, however SUNY and Common App will process fee waivers accordingly:

SUNY Applicants:

Students applying to SUNY who face significant financial hardship may also request their application fees be waived by having their school counselor complete and submit a SUNY Fee Waiver Request Form

The State University waives the $50 application fee for up to four college choices. Students who are eligible for a fee waiver should select “Fee Waiver” as their payment method. If a fee waiver request is submitted and the student is later found ineligible, the student will be required to submit payment before the application will be processed. All SUNY fee waiver forms should be submitted to the SUNY application center at:


Application Services Center
H. Carl McCall SUNY Buiding
353 Broadway 
Albany, NY 12246

Common Applicants:

Students who have limited financial resources may use the NACAC Request for Application Fee Waiver  when applying for college. The form — aimed at students planning to enroll in postsecondary education immediately following high school graduation — helps ensure that access to college is possible for all.
