NOTE: For students for whom the non-refundable application fee presents a financial hardship, we accept College Board fee waiver codes. If you know of a student who does not have a College Board fee waiver code, but believe the student qualifies for one, please email a request for a fee waiver code to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For details, see the Applying Online page.
