Below is a list of some colleges with no application fee.
Each has a short description and some admissions requirements, which many include an essay.
If the rest of your application (grades, test scores, school profile, extracurriculars (with Spike!
), and personal statement) are strong enough, you may be able to get by without it.
Maybe you’re just trying to take advantage of the Common Application’s 20 school cap by sending out your amazing personal statement and activity list to as many schools as possible.
While there are plenty of colleges with no application fee and no essay, the list is broken into two categories to provide you with a variety of options to find the perfect school for you.Tulane University was founded in 1834 and is one of the top research universities in the country.Through one-of-a-kind learning experiences inside and outside the classroom, Tulane graduates are uniquely prepared for the challenges of the real world.Check with each school before applying for all of their current application requirements.Case Western Reserve University strives to improve their student’s lives through preeminent research, education, and creative endeavors.IMPORTANT: When a supplemental essay is optional, we encourage you to still write one, especially if you are an international student.There is some truth to the somewhat humorous commentary that’s commonly heard: “it’s optional for those who don’t want to get accepted.” However, that’s not always true.Maybe you want to apply to a few schools, but don’t want to write any essays.Perhaps you’ve already written so many supplemental essays that the thought of writing one more makes you want to lock yourself in your room with five family size bags of kettle corn and never come out.Our coaches guide their students to identify and execute a passion-project (“Spike”) of deep, personal significance that has real-world impact and helps them stand out to top American universities.Click here to view all our free, downloadable guides and tools, and sign up for our newsletter.
