Benefits Of Free And Reduced Lunch For High School Students
High school students can get more than financial assistance for lunch when they qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. Seniors may qualify for a waiver of their college application fees if they have been approved for the program. Students may also get a fee waiver for the ACT and SAT exams and a significant reduction in the fees for the AP exam. These are great reasons to apply for the free and reduced lunch program, even if your student does not regularly eat a school lunch.
Simply bring a copy of the approval letter to your high school counselor to receive a waiver or reduction of these fees. All information will remain confidential.
