Fee Waivers, or test vouchers, means you do not have to pay for the admissions test (SAT or ACT) you are taking.

In order to qualify for a fee waiver, you must meet ONE of the following criteria:

     -Participate in free/reduce lunch program

     -Be enrolled in a program for economically disadvantaged students (TRIO, Upward Bound, etc.)

     -Family's annual income falls within the levels listed by the US Dept. of Agriculutre for reduced price lunches (see your guidance counselor)

     -Family receives public assistance

     -Family lives in federally subsidized public housing

     -Is a resident in a foster home

If you meet at least ONE of these criteria, you ARE ELIGIBLE for a fee waiver.

 

With a fee waiver for the SAT's, it allows you the following:

     -Two different SAT administrations

     -Two different SAT subject tests

     -Four college application waivers (You don't have to pay the college application fee)

With a fee waiver for the ACT's, it allows you the following:

     -Two different ACT administrations

 

Please note that fee waivers only cover the test administration cost and the fee for sending scores to four colleges (All students can send scores to four colleges within 9 days of taking the test-The fee waiver gives an additional four without a time restriction).  Late registration is not covered, nor are the fees associated with sending scores to colleges that are over the four college allotment.

 

IMPORTANT:  Stamford High School only receives a certain number of fee waivers based on the number of students that used them the prior year.  If a student registers with a fee waiver but DOES NOT sit and take the test, we lose that fee waiver for the following year.
