If you're sending your fee waiver to other school systems, check to see if the specific college accepts the College Board Fee Waiver:
 
 
Cal States and UCs will ask the student for financial information within the application. Based on the information, they may offer the student a fee waiver for up to 4 schools for each system.
 
If a student did not qualify for a fee waiver for the UCs, but they wish to use the fee waivers in their College Board account, they can:
 
Select check as method of payment, print out the bill, and send it to the application center along with ONE College Board fee waiver, EOPS fee waiver, or letter stating their family income and how many people are supported by that income.
If the fee waiver is not accepted, you will be notified by the UC Application Center.
 
Please note: You only need to send in 1 College Board fee waiver for up to 4 UCs. For any additional UCs you are applying to (5th, 6th, etc.), you will need to submit a payment for the remaining balance. The UCs limit you to 4 waived applications.
