        Did you know that if you qualify for assistance through the National School Lunch Program (NLSP), you may eligible to receive fee waivers for the SAT/ACT exams, some College Applications and fee reductions for AP Exams?

        From the College Board:

        "The College Board fee-waiver service assists qualified, economically disadvantaged students who plan to take the: SAT/SAT Subject Tests/PSAT/NMSQT/AP Exams. A student must be either enrolled in or eligible to participate in, the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) in order to receive a fee waiver. Schools participating in new federal programs such as Community Eligibility may not be able to use the NLSP criterion to identify and verify individual student fee-waiver eligibility. However, several other criteria or indicators can still be used to confirm eligibility for fee-waiver benefits." 

        For more information, please speak with your Counselor.
