As part of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign proudly participates in the FreeApp program. FreeApp is designed to increase access to graduate education for students who possess qualities and experiences that enhance the diversity of the intellectual, cultural, and social environments at Big Ten Academic Alliance universities.  Through this program, prospective students can request a graduate application fee waiver for Ph.D. or Master of Fine Arts programs at participating universities.

The priority deadline for requests is November 15.  You are responsible for obtaining graduate applications directly from the institutions where you plan to apply. For more information about campus specific admissions, contact the appropriate FreeApp Coordinator.
