Information for Freshmen Regarding Fee Waivers

Fee Waivers and Eligibility

  • The only fee waivers we accept are ACT, College Board, NACAC, SCOIR, and Common App.
  • Only current high school seniors are eligible for these approved application fee waivers.

Submitting Fee Waivers

UNC Charlotte Future 49er Application

  • You may select the fee waiver option on the UNC Charlotte Future 49er Application.  However, your application will remain incomplete and unprocessed until we receive your fee waiver. 
  • Official fee waivers must be submitted to the undergraduate admissions office by uploading the waiver to your Future 49er Portal under "Upload Materials."
  • Letters from school administrators/counselors are NOT accepted as official fee waivers. Students MUST send official copies of the College Board, ACT or NACAC fee waivers to be considered for the application fee waiver.

Common App

  • If you feel that your financial circumstances might qualify you for an application fee waiver, you can request a fee waiver in the Common Application Fee Waiver section in the Profile section of the Common App. 
  • Your counselor will be asked to complete a Fee Waiver form to affirm your request for a fee waiver.

CFNC Application

  • The CFNC application requires payment by credit or debit card, so students must use the UNC Charlotte Future 49er Application or Common App to use a fee waiver.
  • The CFNC application will support fee waivers only during College Application Week.
  • Students applying with an official fee waiver must submit the ACT, College Board, or NACAC fee waiver to continue the processing of this application.
