Berkeley Law Application Fee Waiver Request

To request a fee waiver, please complete the following form and submit it with proof of participation, such as a verification/certification letter, as soon as possible and no later than January 1 at 5:00 p.m (PST).

Proof of participation falls into three broad categories: Honors/Research (i.e., Fulbright, Truman Scholarship), Public Service (i.e., Teach for America, Active Military and Veterans), and Educational/Socio-Economic Disadvantage (CYDL participant, Gates Scholar, Pell Grant recipient). See categories at the bottom of this page for a complete list; select one and provide proof of participation (required). If your request does not fall under any of the categories above, go to the "Public Service Program" category and attach your supporting documentation under "Other."

NOTE: There is no application fee for the early decision process and it is not necessary to submit a fee waiver request.
