Application Fee

The application fee is $60 for all applicants. Your application will not be processed until your application fee has been paid or your fee waiver request has been received.

If you are sending in a paper application, you may pay by check. Please include the applicant's name on the check. Make checks payable to University of Massachusetts Lowell and mail to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Fee Waiver

Students who wish to apply for an application fee waiver must meet the same criteria as those used for the College Board fee waiver. School counselors must submit a written request for a waiver, or a copy of the College Board waiver request, on behalf of any student.

Veterans, active duty military, and their spouses and dependents also qualify for an application fee waiver.

Waiver requests should be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
