Application Fee

Bucknell's application fee is $40. This non-refundable 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. You must have your school counselor or community-based counselor submit a request in writing via email or mail. If you took the SAT or ACT and received a fee waiver from the testing agency, enclose a copy of that waiver with your request.

Fee waiver requests can be submitted by: email to; mail to Office of Admissions, 1 Dent Drive, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA 17837; or fax to 570.577.3538.
