Fee Waivers

Information about special waivers for the ACT and SAT

ACT

High school juniors or seniors who can't afford the registration fee for the ACT (No Writing) or ACT Plus Writing, may be eligible for an ACT Fee Waiver. Information about the eligibility requirements and how to request a fee waiver is sent each summer to high schools.

To be eligible, a student must meet the following requirements:

  1. He or she must currently attend high school as a junior or senior in the United States, U.S. territories, or Puerto Rico.

  2. He or she must meet at least one indicator of economic need listed on the ACT Fee Waiver form. 

If a student is eligible, he or she may use a maximum of two fee waivers total. The waiver is used once the student registers, even if he or she does not test on the requested test date.

Fee waivers cover only the basic registration fee for the student’s test option, including up to four college choices (if the student provides valid codes when he or she registers). Waivers do not cover the late registration fee, test date or test center changes, stand by fee or any other services.

A student cannot request a fee waiver directly from ACT; he or she must contact the College and Career Center. If a student receives an ACT Fee Waiver Form, he or she should follow the "Student Directions" on it for the registration method (or if requesting Special Testing).

Note: If a student registers online, and registers during the late period or request any additional services, he or she must enter a credit card to pay those fees before submitting the registration. www.act.org

SAT

High school students in the United States or U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico, who cannot afford to pay the test fees are eligible. If testing internationally, only U.S. citizens are eligible for fee waivers.

What the waivers cover

  • Each SAT waiver covers the registration fees for a single test date, either for the SAT or for up to three SAT Subject Tests.

  • A total of four additional flexible score reports can be ordered any time after you register, even after you've seen your scores.

  • Waivers cover either the Question-and-Answer Service or the Student Answer Service Question (for the SAT only) when ordered during registration.

  • A discount on The Official SAT Online Course is available when ordered during online registration.

Where to obtain a waiver

The student should see advisors for help to request a fee waiver since they are not available through the College Board. He or she can download the Student’s Guide to SAT Program Fee Waivers from the College Board website for more information.

How many?

Four total waivers are available — two for the SAT and two for the SAT Subject Tests. SAT Subject Test fee waivers can be used any time from 9th grade through graduation. SAT fee waivers can be used from 11th grade through graduation.

How to register with the waiver

For online registration, the student should enter the entire 12-digit code when prompted. If the student is registering by mail, he or she should submit the completed fee-waiver card in the same envelope with the completed registration form.

Restrictions

Fee waivers cannot be used for late registration except for the October test date. Fee waivers cannot be used for standby registrations. http://www.collegeboard.org

Administrative Changes Announced

Scott Pennington named director of new Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning Department;   Clayton Hucke named interim 7th Grade Principal

Dear Union Parents and Guardians: 

I am excited to announce that Mr. Scott Pennington, principal at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center, has been asked to lead a new department within Teaching and Learning entitled Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning. As you know, we are in the second year of our five-year district strategic plan. One of the elements of this plan is Union’s Learning Model that focuses on literacy, cognitive capacity, engagement, and social and emotional learning.

As we continuously evaluate our data, and hear from teachers and our site leaders, there continues to be a dominant narrative that more must be done to address the social and emotional development of our students. Collectively speaking, our teachers continue to do amazing work in providing dynamic learning experiences for our students. It is now time for us to articulate a tiered approach to addressing unwanted student behaviors and student trauma – at all grade levels – while also fostering greater hope and confidence in our students’ lives. The idea is that we will be more proactive in our efforts, providing counseling and guidance to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. I firmly believe this will make a positive difference in our students’ lives and in the learning culture of our buildings.

Mr. Pennington’s work as a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal make him uniquely qualified to lead in this new position. In addition to this change, I am also pleased to announce that Mr. Clay Hucke, assistant principal at Union High School, has been asked to serve as an interim principal at the Sixth & Seventh Grade Center. Mr. Hucke has done an outstanding job at the high school and he looks forward to serving the students, staff, and parents at this site.

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Pennington and Mr. Hucke. These moves will become effective January 1, 2020.

Respectfully,

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Union Public Schools
