Asking for application fee waiver: does it look bad?


Recommended Posts

Not at all. I direct our graduate program at University of Colorado Denver and we actively recruit students from groups that are underrepresented in the academy, including first-gen learners and working-class scholars (most of our faculty fit this description). Waivers make it easier for such applicants to consider our program, and while we can't always get the fee waivers from the graduate school sometimes we can pull from department resources to cover the cost. 

Related to this, the university is offering free applications today and tomorrow (10/19-10/20). Our terminal MA program has recently graduated six students that have gone off for doctoral studies at Princeton, Washington, Maryland, Wisconsin, Northeastern, and CU Boulder. If you're keen to learn more about the program just email me!
