Using the Form
Does the enrollment deposit present an insurmountable
barrier to college attendance for you?
Colleges request an enrollment deposit to secure a student’s space in the
incoming freshman class. This deposit not only guarantees your seat but
may also be used to secure campus housing, confirm your registration for
freshman orientation, or cover other on-campus costs. However, colleges
understand that some students may not have the financial means to pay
an enrollment deposit. If you demonstrate financial need, colleges may
consider waiving or deferring your enrollment fee.
Do you qualify for a Pell grant?
If you received a Pell Grant, this demonstrates that you and your family
have some financial need regarding college costs. Colleges have access
to your eligibility information via your Student Aid Report (SAR), so they
will be able to verify that you have received a Pell Grant. Colleges may
utilize this information when considering whether to waive or defer your
enrollment deposit.
Talk to the college admission office—they might be able to
waive the enrollment deposit.
If paying an enrollment deposit will be a substantial hardship for your
family, reach out to the college admission office and ask about your options.
Explain your circumstances by email or phone. This is the best first step!
Plus, it shows a college that you are really interested in being a member
of its community. You may also consider submitting the NACAC enrollment
deposit waiver form to the one college where you plan to enroll. Please
note, your college (not NACAC) will make the final decision to accept or
decline the fee waiver form. In addition, it may take a couple weeks for
the admission office to process the waiver. Follow up directly with your
college’s admission office if you have questions.
