Fee Waivers & Reductions

Who can qualify for a fee waiver and how the process works

The College Board fee-waiver service assists qualified, economically disadvantaged students who plan to take the:

  • SAT
  • SAT Subject Tests
  • PSAT/NMSQT
  • AP Exams

A student must be either enrolled in, or eligible to participate in, the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) in order to receive a fee waiver. Schools participating in new federal programs such as Community Eligibility may not be able to use the NSLP criterion to identify and verify individual student fee-waiver eligibility. However, several other criteria or indicators can still be used to confirm eligibility for fee-waiver benefits. Please see the test-specific guidelines for more information.

The fee-waiver guidelines, combined with your knowledge of circumstances of individual students, will help you determine which students are eligible. The main source for determining eligibility is the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Income Eligibility Guidelines
