We encourage applicants seeking an application fee waiver to begin an application and complete as much as possible without submitting a payment. You may contact the graduate director of the program to which you’re applying here and send a request with your 9-digit application ID — departments may be able to pay the application fee for you.
If you feel you qualify for a fee waiver for reasons that aren’t listed on this Application Fee webpage, contact the Graduate Admissions office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
* GEM application status can be checked internally by UD. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com to request this verification which we facilitate through the College of Engineering.
