Brandeis is dedicated to making applying to college accessible for all students. If the Common Application fee presents a financial barrier, the fee will be waived. Please follow the steps below to request a fee waiver:

On the Common Application, under “Profile”, select “Common App Fee Waiver.”

  1. Select “Yes” to the prompt: “Our member colleges want to make sure that application fees do not pose a barrier for any student who wishes to apply for admission. Do you feel that your financial circumstances might qualify you for an application fee waiver?”
  2. If you do not meet one of the indicators of economic need, select “I can provide a supporting statement from a school official, college access counselor, financial aid officer, or community leader.” Brandeis does not require additional documentation to be sent.
