Application Fee Waiver

The Graduate School (TGS) participates in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation’s (CIC) FreeApp program, which is designed to enable eligible applicants to apply to Northwestern and other CIC member schools without paying an application fee.

The number of waivers issued each year is limited, and all waivers are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, fee waivers are no longer available for Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall 2016 applications. We will begin to review requests for application waivers for 2017 applications in September 2016. (Please note that any requests made before August 2016 will not be considered.) 

If you have any questions, please contact TGS Admissions.
