To be considered for this fee waiver, you must be a U.S. citizen or resident alien and one of the following:

  • A dependent senior with a Parental Contribution of no more than $1,500
  • A self-supporting senior with a contribution of no more than $1,900
  • A self-supporting unenrolled college graduate with a contribution of no more than $1,900
