Questrom School of Business

Application Fee Waiver Request

In order to be considered for an application fee waiver, you must provide a CAS ID. The CAS ID is provided when you start your application. You can locate the ID in the top right corner of the online application.

If your fee waiver request is approved, you’ll receive a follow-up email with additional instructions on how to submit your application. DO NOT click “submit and pay for programs” prior to receiving these instructions. We are unable to offer application fee refunds.

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, your application fee waiver may take a few business days to process. If you submit this request before or on one of our application deadlines but do not receive a confirmation from us that same day, your application will still be considered “on time” for the deadline to which you applied. You must submit your waiver request before you submit your application in order for the fee waiver to be applied.

Please note: If you have been approved for an application fee waiver and are applying to one of our dual degree programs, the application fee waiver will be applied to your Questrom application only.  You will still need to pay the required application fee for the other school at BU to which you are applying.

Applicant Information

To locate your CAS ID, open your application. In the top right corner you should see a button to "Sign Out." Next to that button is your Name and below that your CAS ID. A CAS ID is 10 characters long and does not include any spaces.
