The NACAC fee waiver is for students who have limited financial resources and want the admission application fee to be waived when applying to universities. This helps ensure that access to universities is possible for all students.

The NACAC fee waiver is only available to students who apply to universities immediately after high school graduation. Therefore, transfer students, gap-year students and those choosing to defer applying to college are not eligible and should ask the university they are applying to for an institutional fee waiver. There are additional requirements that need to be met in order to be eligible for the NACAC fee waiver that can be viewed at the NACAC's official website.
