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.

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.
