The College Board Offers Fee Waivers to Students Affected by Hurricane Harvey

(Austin, TX) – The College Board is offering a free October SAT registration, and a College Scholarship Services (CSS) Profile fee waiver to students affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The free October SAT registration and CSS Profile fee waiver are for students who are experiencing hardship and/or displacement due to the hurricane and are in an area designated by FEMA.
• Students who are registered for the October SAT should call Customer Service to receive a refund of their registration and late fee. Students can register and contact Customer Service through September 27.
• For the CSS Profile fee waiver, students should go to www.cssprofile.org, complete their application, and the system will automatically apply eligibility rules.

“I am thankful to the College Board for providing this relief to Southeast Texas students and their families during this time. This help will allow citizens to focus on providing shelter and food for their families and community, without jeopardizing higher education opportunities for young Southeast Texans,” said State Representative James White.
