Is there an application fee waiver available?
If you can’t pay the fee right now, please talk with your school counselor about asking us to waive it. We’re glad to do so, provided your counselor uses the waiver form provided by NACAC, ACT, or the College Board, or provided your counselor or another school official sends us a letter verifying that you meet the waiver guidelines of any of these three organizations. If you’re applying to transfer to Carolina from another institution, please review the NACAC guidelines for qualifying for a fee waiver. We’re also glad to waive the fee if you’re on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces; just indicate your duty status on your application and we’ll take care of it. The bottom line: whether you apply with a fee or a waiver, we’ll be grateful to receive your application, and we’ll consider you with care, appreciation, and respect.
