Get a Florida State University Application Fee Waiver in a Few Clicks

Florida State University is a public university located in Tallahassee. While FSU charges only $30 for the college application fee, most students apply to multiple schools and spend hundreds of dollars for a chance to get admitted. If you apply through the Common or the Coalition App, you’ll have to pay an additional $5 for the application fee.

Requesting a Florida State University application fee waiver with DoNotPay can be useful if you’re struggling to afford college-related expenses.

What Is a College Application Fee Waiver?

College fees represent a financial struggle for most students in America. Since many colleges have high fees, you will probably have to spend a few hundreds of dollars on applications. Even if you choose to apply for schools that don’t charge an application fee, you’ll still have to pay other university-related costs, including:

  • SAT and ACT fees
  • Test preparations
  • On-campus visits and events
  • Tuition
  • Housing
  • Books

If you’re in a bad financial situation, you should try to obtain a college fee waiver and save money on your application.
