    Furman now charges $50 and Drexel charges $60, unless you qualify for a fee waiver based on your family’s income.

    Hi Tamara,

    Thanks for keeping us updated. You’re right, now Furman does charge for online applications. However, Drexel still waives the fee for online applications: http://www.drexel.edu/admissions/apply/ .

  15. saon Says:

    is there any us university situated in new york (ny) which offer masters degree with low tuition fee and without application fee?

  16. Zakiya at University Language Says:

    Hi Saon,

    Thanks for your questions! Colleges and universities that are a part of the City University of New York public university system (CUNY) are known for having relatively low tuition fees; however, if I am not mistaken I do not believe they have free applications.

    On the other hand, there are many private universities in New York that offer both graduate programs and free applications (for example, Carleton College, who charges no fee if you apply via the Common App). But because they are private, the tuition of these schools is generally not very cheap.

    On the bright side, many schools offer application fee waivers that you can apply for that may reduce or even eliminate what you have to pay in order to apply.

    Hope this helps!
