Before submitting your application, you will be asked for a NONREFUNDABLE $60 application fee. Ohio State accepts ACT, SAT and other fee waivers meant to assist low-income families. Students receiving the Pell Grant are also eligible for a fee waiver ( send us a copy of your financial aid award letter to verify this). To request a waiver, check the box in the Application Fee Waiver section of the application indicating the program for which you qualify. You will not be prompted to pay the application fee in order to submit the application. Fee waiver requests will be verified by Undergraduate Admissions.
