Fee Waivers

There are several circumstances under which you may receive an application fee waiver. Some possible qualifiers:

  • If you qualify for a fee waiver on the SAT or ACT examination
  • If you qualify for your school's free or reduced lunch program
  • If your school guidance counselor can verify your financial need for a waiver
  • If you are a participant in certain programs that aid economically disadvantaged students, such as Upward Bound or Partnership for the Future—check with your program or our office to see if you qualify
  • If your mother or father graduated from the University of Richmond

Please contact the Office of Admission at (800) 700-1662 or (804) 289-8640 if you believe you may qualify for a fee waiver. We will assist you in submitting the proper documentation.

Campus Visit Fee Waivers

If you received an application fee waiver as part of your visit to campus, simply follow these instructions to redeem it:

  • On the Common Application, navigate to the University of Richmond's "Questions" page under "My Colleges." Where asked about school-specific fee waivers, select "Campus Visit."
  • On the Coalition Application, fee waiver information is required in two places. Under "Application Questions" within the University of Richmond's application, select the Campus Visit fee waiver option; and when you reach the Payments section, enter the code Campus Visit (case-sensitive) to apply your fee waiver.

When processing your application, our staff will confirm that you qualify and waive the fee.
