OPPORTUNITIES AT BURKE HIGH SCHOOL
Students that participate in the federal free/reduced lunch program can receive up to two fee waivers to take the ACT or SAT free of charge. Come down to the Counseling Center and ask your counselor to fill out an ACT or SAT fee waiver form for you. The form is good for either the regular ACT, the ACT writing plus, or the SAT.
Additionally, most colleges understand that high school seniors who meet the financial eligibility guidelines (such as participating in the federal free/reduced school lunch program) should be able to apply to colleges free of charge. Eligible seniors can request their counselor to send a application fee waiver letter to most all colleges who charge an application fee - be sure to note this request on the blue College/Scholarship Processing Form.
