Fee Waivers

College Board offers fee waivers to assist eligible students taking the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT.

Note: There are no fee waivers for the PSAT 10 or PSAT 8/9.

Fee Waivers for the PSAT/NMSQT

Schools can request PSAT/NMSQT fee waivers for eligible juniors. 
You no longer need to order fee waivers before test day. After test day, log in to the test ordering site. Then select eligible students from an online roster.

Fee Waivers for the SAT

SAT fee waivers are available to low-income 11th- and 12th-grade students in the U.S. or U.S. territories. 

SAT fee waivers are sent directly to schools and community-based organizations (CBOs). School counselors identify first-time fee waiver–eligible students at their school and distribute a fee waiver code to them. Authorized agencies and CBOs may also distribute fee waiver codes.
Students who've already tested with a fee waiver will automatically have their full set of fee waiver benefits in their College Board account. 

See the Resources section for more information about fee waivers.
