Application fee waiver

The WSU Office of Undergraduate Admissions accepts fee waivers for the application fee for first-time freshmen and transfer students. The applying student’s high school guidance counselor must sign the university fee waiver prior to application submission at WSU. Transfer students may submit the NACAC Transfer Fee Waiver and must have attestation from a financial aid officer or staff member from their current or most recently attended college/university. Application fee waivers are subject to the approval of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and are granted based upon evidence of financial need.

The following documents may also be used to waive the application fee:

• ACT or SAT verification that a fee waiver was used to register for the test. These waivers are available only from a high school guidance office.
• Request for Admission Application Fee Waiver form provided by NACAC (National Association for College Admission       Counseling).

*Please note that fee waivers are not accepted for guest, post-bachelor, international or non-matric applicants.
