Fee Waivers

Information about special waivers for the ACT and SAT

ACT

High school juniors or seniors who can't afford the registration fee for the ACT (No Writing) or ACT Plus Writing, may be eligible for an ACT Fee Waiver. Information about the eligibility requirements and how to request a fee waiver is sent each summer to high schools.

To be eligible, a student must meet the following requirements:

  1. He or she must currently attend high school as a junior or senior in the United States, U.S. territories, or Puerto Rico.

  2. He or she must meet at least one indicator of economic need listed on the ACT Fee Waiver form. 

If a student is eligible, he or she may use a maximum of two fee waivers total. The waiver is used once the student registers, even if he or she does not test on the requested test date.

Fee waivers cover only the basic registration fee for the student’s test option, including up to four college choices (if the student provides valid codes when he or she registers). Waivers do not cover the late registration fee, test date or test center changes, stand by fee or any other services.

A student cannot request a fee waiver directly from ACT; he or she must contact the College and Career Center. If a student receives an ACT Fee Waiver Form, he or she should follow the "Student Directions" on it for the registration method (or if requesting Special Testing).

Note: If a student registers online, and registers during the late period or request any additional services, he or she must enter a credit card to pay those fees before submitting the registration. www.act.org

SAT

High school students in the United States or U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico, who cannot afford to pay the test fees are eligible. If testing internationally, only U.S. citizens are eligible for fee waivers.

What the waivers cover

  • Each SAT waiver covers the registration fees for a single test date, either for the SAT or for up to three SAT Subject Tests.

  • A total of four additional flexible score reports can be ordered any time after you register, even after you've seen your scores.

  • Waivers cover either the Question-and-Answer Service or the Student Answer Service Question (for the SAT only) when ordered during registration.

  • A discount on The Official SAT Online Course is available when ordered during online registration.

Where to obtain a waiver

The student should see advisors for help to request a fee waiver since they are not available through the College Board. He or she can download the Student’s Guide to SAT Program Fee Waivers from the College Board website for more information.

How many?

Four total waivers are available — two for the SAT and two for the SAT Subject Tests. SAT Subject Test fee waivers can be used any time from 9th grade through graduation. SAT fee waivers can be used from 11th grade through graduation.

How to register with the waiver

For online registration, the student should enter the entire 12-digit code when prompted. If the student is registering by mail, he or she should submit the completed fee-waiver card in the same envelope with the completed registration form.

Restrictions

Fee waivers cannot be used for late registration except for the October test date. Fee waivers cannot be used for standby registrations. http://www.collegeboard.org

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
