How do I pay my admissions application fee?

Frequently Asked Questions


The $75 admissions application processing fee can be paid online through the online application system (either the Common Application, the Coalition Application, or the Universal College Application). Please note that the Common Application, Coalition Application, and Universal Application websites are operated independently, and their respective offices are better able to assist you with specific logistical issues you may encounter while submitting the application forms or your fee through their sites.

You may also send a check drawn on a US bank in US dollars to: Harvard College Admissions 86 Brattle Street Cambridge, MA 02138.  Please be sure to write the name and date of birth of the applicant on the check.

We are committed to making the application process accessible for all students. If the admissions application fee presents a hardship for you or your family, the fee will be waived. You can request a fee waiver directly through the Common Application or the Coalition application if you meet their respective indicators of economic need. If you do not meet these indicators or you are applying using the Universal Application, please fill out our Admissions Application Fee Waiver Request Form.
