SAT & ACT Wavier Information and Test Dates
To qualify for a fee waiver students must meet one of the qualifications listed in the ACT and SAT waiver information linked on the names. If your student receives free or reduced lunch they qualify and need to speak with Mrs. Wagner for their waivers.
If you need to apply for Free or Reduced Lunch you can do so on county website HERE
Please provide a copy of your confirmation form from the county for free or reduced lunch or your other qualifying documentation to receive the SAT/ACT waiver to Mrs. Wagner, the counseling clerk.
** You will receive one SAT waiver which is good for two tests and one ACT waiver which is good for four tests. Be sure to reserve at least one SAT test and one ACT test for your Senior year.**
Once you take the SAT using a waiver, you may receive up to 4 college application fee waivers for your senior year on your College Board account.
