There is a non-refundable processing fee of $100.00 USD. Online applicants may pay by credit card, electronic check, money order, cashier's check, or personal check. Otherwise, we are unable to process credit cards and electronic check payments. If you plan to pay by a method other than a credit card or electronic check, please make your check, cashier's check, or money order payable to "Caltech - Graduate," and mail the check or money order to the Graduate Studies Office. Do not send cash through the mail. Applicants living outside the United States may also submit an international money order or a check drawn on a United States bank.
Fee waivers will be granted to a limited number of students who can demonstrate financial need, or are affiliated with organizations that have made special arrangements with our office.
To request a fee waiver, please complete the online fee waiver form within the graduate application and submit it through the online admissions system.
