OAT Fee Waiver Information
All 2019 OAT Partial Fee Waivers have been awarded. In December the 2020 OAT Partial Fee Waivers will be made available. The content below is provided for informational purposes only.
In documented cases of severe financial hardship, a limited number of partial fee waivers are available to OAT examinees each calendar year (January - December). The partial fee waiver covers 50% of the OAT fee. The partial fee waiver does not apply to any charges associated with rescheduling/canceling a test date or score reporting after the time of initial application. Partial fee waivers are granted on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible examinees who have submitted the required documents.
An examinee is eligible to request a partial fee waiver if each of the following criteria are met:
- First time examinee
- U.S. citizen or resident alien
- Has demonstrated financial hardship
- Received financial aid from their school
Examinees that have previously received a partial fee waiver or have taken the OAT are not eligible.
