Application Fee Waiver
To increase diversity within the applicant pool, CSE will waive application fees for a limited number of applicants who are members of historically marginalized or underrepresented groups in computing. To be considered for an application fee waiver, please email cse-advisor listing the academic program, level (PhD or MS), and home unit to which you are applying, as well as a copy of your resume or transcript one week before the program deadline. In the email, please let us know the aspect of your identity that is underrepresented. People who identify as Black, Hispanic, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander; women, LGBTQ+, and non-binary individuals; people with disabilities; and veterans are all examples of groups underrepresented in computing. Note that current Federal TRIO program applicants, such as McNair Scholars, are eligible for an application fee waiver through the Office of Graduate Education and should follow the instructions here.
Do not pay the application fee until you receive a response, as it may not be possible to process refund requests quickly. The request for a waiver will not affect admissions decisions.
