Alexandria Technical & Community College will waive application fees through Thursday, Oct. 31 to reward early applicants for next fall's school year.

The waiver coincides with the effort by Minnesota State’s 30 colleges and seven universities to waive fees for part or all of October, which is College Knowledge Month.

Each year, Alexandria waives its $20 fee during September and October. Others will waive fees for just one week. Some colleges never charge application fees, and every school has the right to waive the fee for qualified low-income students and active duty military service members deployed overseas.

If applicants are prompted for a promo code, they should use “CKM2019.” For more information, contact any of the Minnesota State colleges or universities, or visit
