Designated High School Fee Waivers

SUNY is providing automatic fee waivers for all students at designated high schools, regardless of their household income (full list of designated schools). The waiver will be applied when the student applies to a SUNY campus (through both the SUNY Application and the Common App) using the high school’s CEEB.

Common Applicants

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