Application Fee Waiver

Towson University accepts the following graduate application fee waivers:

  • U.S. Military Service Waiver
    Applicant must request a waiver based on active duty status with current orders or with an honorable discharge from U.S. military duty and a copy of his/her DD214 to verify. These forms can be faxed or mailed to Towson University.
    • Towson Student Waiver
      An applicant to a graduate program must request this waiver based on the fact that he/she graduated from TU with a bachelor's or master's degree, is currently enrolled in a TU graduate program, or is currently enrolled as a TU senior. The degree is verified by admissions staff and the waiver granted. The waiver is always granted for eligible students.
    • McNair Scholars
      This is a graduate TRIO program under the U.S. Department of Education. McNair Scholars complete an application fee waiver form which is offered on-line by the program. The applicant must submits this form to University Admissions to complete the waiver documentation. For all requests to waive the $45 application fee, the student must indicate his/her eligibility for the waiver by clicking on the appropriate checkbox at the time of application. All documented waiver requests are granted. If an applicant does not provide documentation, the Towson application is held but will not be processed for review. Upon receipt of either the documentation or the application fee payment, the application process will begin and the application process moves toward the evaluation stage.

A request to waive the application fee will remain open until the deadline for application submission. If documentation has not been received by the application deadline, University Admissions will close the application. Waivers are not denied, however, the application is not processed unless documentation is received. Fee waivers cannot be used to obtain a refund after an admission decision has been made.
