SAT and ACT fee waivers are available for our students on free or reduced lunch.

Each school is given a limited amount of fee waivers. Students should see their school counselor.

What does an SAT fee waiver cover?

Your SAT fee waiver lets you take two free SAT tests (with or without essay), six free SAT subject tests, and receive two question-and-answer service (QAS) or student answer service (SAS) reports.

Your fee waiver covers the cost of two SAT registrations. Two of our three students improve their scores when they take the SAT again, so you'll want to take advantage of both registrations. For example, take the SAT the first time in the spring of junior year, and then again in the fall of senior year.

Score higher by retaking the SAT, along with using free, personalized practice on Khan Academy. Over half of the SAT takers take the SAT again, and studies have shown this can raise your score by 50-80 points.

Students who use an SAT fee waiver also get free unlimited score sends, waived application fees at select colleges, and unlimited CSS Profile application fee waivers to apply for financial aid.
