Students who face financial barriers to taking the SAT may be eligible for College Board fee waivers to cover the cost of testing. If you think you're eligible, you may talk to your school counselor or a representative of an authorized community-based organization about getting a fee waiver code from them or apply for a fee waiver directly with College Board.
If you apply for a fee waiver directly from College Board, we will collect from you information necessary to determine your eligibility and administer the fee waiver program, including your first and last name, address, how many people reside in your home, the name and address of the school you attend, and whether you are a U.S. Citizen. We also ask for the name and email address of an adult who can confirm your fee waiver eligibility such as a parent/legal guardian, counselor, sponsor or social administrator.
Your fee waiver status may be shared with your school and district.
College Board automatically uses your fee waiver status for the BigFuture Scholarships program to determine eligibility for Lower Income Student entry, which you may opt out of at bigfuture.org/scholarships-opt-out.
