How to find financial aid to apply for college and to take the tests.

During your junior and senior years in high school you will be required, to spend money on college admission testing and college applications. These expenses can total several hundreds of dollars. The SAT and ACT tests are almost $50 each and college applications range from $30 to $150. To assist students with these necessary expenses, the College Board (SAT) and the ACTcompanies offer lower income students fee waivers to cover many of these costs.
Proving Need
  • In order to be eligible for fee waivers you must provide proof of financial need. The easiestway to obtain this is by applying for and receiving free or reduced price lunch status.
  • If you think you might be eligible, please remember to complete the
    Free/Reduced Lunch form next fall. The form must be completed in black or blue  ink only, it must not show any changes(like crossed out items), and it must be signed by a parent or guardian. You can return it to the teacher who provided it or to the designated cafeteria personnel. You will learn your eligibility in a few days.
The Benefits:
Here is what you can receive, in total, if you qualify for this aid (besides lunch):
  • 1 PSAT fee waiver - Not guaranteed - fee waivers can be limited
  • 2 SAT Reasoning Test fee waivers (the SAT)
