PART II: Fee Waiver Instructions for SAT(free/reduced lunch, AVID, Upward Bound students)
While you're an 11th and 12th grader in high school, you can use two fee waivers for the SAT Reasoning and two fee waivers for the SAT Subject Tests. If you fail to show for the exam or need to make changes on the date, you will lose your fee waiver! it is important to make it a priority and follow all CollegeBoard directions about what to bring and do as well as figure out a way to get to the testing site long before the day of the test.
To get a fee waiver, pick up a waiver form from the College and Career Center and returned to the Parent Center (Rm. 129) and an email will be sent to Ignaitis that states you have free or reduced lunch.
Don't wait until the last day!
