I know there are some colleges out there that don't have an application fee for on-line applications. I think Mount Holyoke is one. Creighton had a "no application fee" online form last year, but their website doesn't mention that it is free now.

So, does anyone have a list, or know of any of these schools? Obviously, I'm not going to choose a school by how much the application fee is, but if I see a school I might like that has a free application, I might give it more consideration, since I have nothing to lose...

If you get accepted to a college, do they give you back your application fee?

I don't think any colleges do.


it's not worth worrying about--60$ is a cheap price to pay to be given a chance to attend a college. Colleges don't earn money from these fees--they just cover the cost of having people look through them and consider them.

Hartwick College. If you have an official visit, interview or apply online, the app fee is waived.

By Zephyrmaster (Zephyrmaster) on Friday, September 26, 2003 - 11:04 pm: Edit

My stats = not that great, but they have a full ride scholarship called the "Heinz" scholarship (yes, the ketchup company), and for those who qualify to apply for the scholarship (which I assume is uber competitive, kicking me out of the running), the application fee is waived.

is the Heinz scholarship only for US citizens?

By Zephyrmaster (Zephyrmaster) on Saturday, September 27, 2003 - 12:13 pm: Edit

Maybe, don't know.
