Fee Waivers

New students are required to submit a $50 nonrefundable application fee or apply for a fee waiver. The $50 application fee for international students cannot be waived. An application will not be processed until the $50 application fee or fee waiver verification is received. The fee or waiver verification must be received by the supporting document deadline for the term for which the student is applying. The fee will not be returned to applicants who are denied admission or applicants who fail to submit the necessary information for an admission decision.

Applicants who may be exempt from the fee include:

  • those who may qualify for an economic hardship waiver,
  • veterans who served on active duty for a minimum of one year,
  • former Illinois State University students returning to the same degree level, and
  • permanent employees and retirees of Illinois State University.

High school and college counselors may verify an economic hardship fee waiver using our fee waiver form. This form can be emailed to Admissions@IllinoisState.edu or faxed to (309) 438-8192.
