Application Fee Waivers

How to Request a Fee Waiver

The School of Statistics is pleased to provide graduate application fee waivers for entry in Fall 2021 to the first 90 US citizens or permanent residents. Email Taryn Verley (tverley@umn.edu) to request one at your earliest convenience after you have started your application in SLATE. 

It is very important that you make the request BEFORE you click "Finalize Application and Pay" on the Review page of your application. If you complete your application and pay the application fee, you forgo the opportunity for this waiver. 

You will be notified promptly whether your request has been approved and you can finalize your application accordingly.
