In compliance with Apply Free Days, a new three-day initiative created by the Kansas Board of Regents, there will be no college application fees for aspiring Wichita State and WSU Tech students from Nov. 7-9. 

Apply Free Days aims to remove the financial barriers affiliated with college application accessibility, according to Jon Rolph, a KBOR chair member. 

The newly implemented initiative will waive the application fee for all KBOR institutions, including seven public universities, 19 community colleges, six technical colleges and 21 private member institutions of the Kansas Independent College Association.

All general applications, certificate programs, and associate and bachelor degree program applications will be free from Nov. 7-9 as long as they are submitted between the three-day window. 

Free applications will not be granted to those applying for graduate programs or other mid-degree applications. Additionally, applicants must be Kansas residents.

Additional information on Apply Free Days and the universities that will waive college application fees can be found on the KBOR website.
