Bucknell's application fee is $40. This nonrefundable fee is paid electronically through the Common Application or Coalition Application website.
We don't want this fee to be an impediment to your applying for admission. If you feel that your financial circumstances qualify you for an application fee waiver, please indicate this when you apply through the Common Application or Coalition Application.
Update for Students in Areas Affected by Coronavirus

New students are required to make a nonrefundable deposit of $500 after they have been admitted to Bucknell. This deposit is credited to the student's first-semester billing.
