Students:

Please remember if you qualify for free or reduced lunch, you can apply for the "Request for Waiver or Deferral of College Admission Application Fee."  What this means is that a student who is receiving free of reduced lunch may not have to pay the college application fee, or may be eligible for a reduced admissions fee.

If you think you qualify, please visit the main office to complete the fee waiver form before you apply to universities or colleges.  If you have any questions, you should speak with a counselor.
