ACT Fee Waiver Code 2022/2023 And How To Apply

Filed in Article, Education by on August 1, 2022 0 Comments

The ACT is a standardized college admission test conducted by ACT, a nonprofit organization of the same name in the United States. These tests usually four major academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and scientific reasoning. It also offers an optional direct writing test.

Tuition fees might be a huge bug for most students but the good news is students who test with an ACT fee waiver may also request a Waiver or Deferral of College Admission Applications Fee.

Are You Eligible for ACT Fee Waiver?

Anyone who meets the following eligibility requirements can apply for the ACT:

  1. Is currently enrolled in high school in the 11th or 12th grade.
  2. Is testing in the United States, US territories, or Puerto Rico.
  3. Anyone who meets one or more of the indicators of economic need listed below;
  • Anyone who was/is enrolled in a federal free or reduced-price lunch program at school, based on US Department of Agriculture (USDA) income levels.
  • Anyone who is enrolled in a program for the economically disadvantaged such as GEAR or Upward Bound. However, if the student participates in a program, but is not economically disadvantaged, they are not eligible for a fee waiver.
  • Resides in a foster home, is a ward of the state, or is homeless.
  • Family receives low-income public assistance or lives in federally subsidized public housing.
  • Family’s total annual income is at or below USDA levels for free or reduced-price lunches on the USDA Food and Nutrition Service website. Or whose family earns less than;
