Fee Waiver and Reduction
To receive a waiver for an outside graduate school application fee, you must follow the specific instructions of the school to which you are applying, which typically require that our office complete a brief form or send a brief letter. If documentation of your financial need must be substantiated to a third party, please contact our office to review and expedite.
To qualify for a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Praxis Exam fee-reduction certificate authorized by the Education Testing Service (ETS) you must be:
- A U.S. citizen or eligible non-resident qualified to apply for federal financial aid.
- A college senior receiving financial aid through Brown University, or a returning unenrolled Brown graduate who has applied for financial aid; and either a dependent college senior whose Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Student Aid Report (SAR) shows an estimated parent contribution of not more than $2,500 for the senior year, or a self-supporting college senior whose FAFSA SAR shows a contribution of not more than $3,000 for the senior year, or an unenrolled college graduate whose FAFSA SAR indicates self-supporting status and a contribution of not more than $3,000.
