    ACT Fee Waiver Eligibility

    If you can't afford the registration fee, you may be eligible for a fee waiver from ACT. Funds are limited, and once they have been exhausted, requests for waivers will be denied.

    See your Dean to see if you are eligible for the waiver.
  • You must currently attend high school as a junior or senior and meet at least one indicator of economic need listed on the ACT fee waiver form.
  • You may register only twice with an ACT fee waiver either in your junior or senior year. The waiver has been used once you register, even if you do not test.
  • Fee waivers cover only the basic registration fee including up to four valid college choices (listed at the time of registration). Waivers do not cover test date changes, test center changes, or any other fees.
