If Bowdoin's $60 application fee presents a significant financial hardship for you or your family, you may be elligible for an application fee waiver from the College.
The Common Application lays out specific criteria for a fee waiver. If you don't meet any of the fee waiver threshholds, but you believe your family's financial circumstances warrant consideration for a fee waiver, you can ask your regional admissions representative for a waiver. You may also be asked to include a statement from a teacher or college guidance counselor supporting your request.
Fee waivers can be requested by email or phone.
