SAT/ ACT Fee Waiver Request Information

Any student who qualifies for free/ reduced lunch at AHS is eligible to receive a fee waiver to take the SAT or ACT exam.  Each testing agency will allow up to 2 total waivers during 9th - 12th grade (so you could take each test twice).  A waiver code can only be used once per registration so you will need to request a new one each time you want to test.  Be mindful of registration deadlines!   IF YOU DO NOT TEST AFTER REGISTERING THE WAIVER CANNOT BE REUSED.

 

The waiver will cover the complete cost of a full exam and scores sent to 4 colleges or universities.

YOU WILL SIGN UP FOR THE TEST YOURSELF AT ONE OF THE REGISTRATION SITES BELOW.     

You will receive a waiver code to enter in the payment section.

AFTER YOU MAKE THIS REQUEST, YOUR COUNSELOR WILL VERIFY YOUR LUNCH STATUS AND COMPLETE THE WAIVER FORM.  IT WILL TYPICALLY BE AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP WITHIN 48 HRS OF YOUR REQUEST.  Your counselor may also send you a reminder to your school email that the waiver is ready for pick up.

Stop in the counselor office to pick up your waiver after that time frame.  Any waivers requested but not picked up within 1 week of the request will be cancelled and put back in the available list for other students.
