How do I pay for it?

      The student may qualify for a fee waiver for both the SAT and ACT.

      You're eligible for fee waivers if you say "yes" to any of these items:
  • You receive Free and Reduced Lunch
  • Your annual family income falls within the Income Eligibility Guidelines set by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.
  • You're enrolled in a federal, state, or local program that aids students from low-income families (i.e. Upward Bound).
  • Your family receives public assistance.
  • You live in federally subsidized public housing or a foster home, or are homeless.
  • You are a ward of the state or an orphan.

      The student should come to the CAREER CENTER to receive their fee waiver.


      Students are allowed to take each test twice with a fee waiver. Any tests taken after that must be paid for by the individual.


      If the student does not qualify for a fee waiver, they will pay at the end of the online registration with debit, credit, check or pay pal.​
