Application Fee

Penn GSE offers a free application from September 1, 2018, through March 1, 2019. Beginning March 2, 2019, through August 31, 2019, there is a $75 non-refundable application fee.

All applicants are still encouraged to apply to more than one program and/or degree since no additional application fees will apply.

Applicants affiliated with the programs listed below are exempt from the non-refundable application fee year-round. If applying after March 1,  please email to obtain a fee waiver code before paying the $75 application fee. 

  • City Year
  • Fulbright
  • Institute for the Recruitment of Teachers (IRT)
  • McNair Scholars
  • Submatriculation programs
  • Teach for America (TFA)

If the non-refundable application fee poses a financial hardship, please email with “Waiver” in the subject line to request an application fee waiver before submitting your application. Penn GSE is unable to refund any fees paid.
