    Waivers

    In order to be eligible for testing waivers students must be currently eligible for the Free/Reduced lunch program. If you are not currently eligible please fill out the application below. Students are able to have 2 ACT and 2 SAT waivers. Once they have used the 2 waivers to register they cannot have any more waivers; even if the student was absent the day of testing. The fee waivers covers the registration fee, however, the waiver will not cover a late registration fee. 

    For SAT you only need to use 1 paper waiver given to you at MHS. After that their system will recognize that you receive waivers and will automatically ask if you want to use the second one the next time your register. 

    Students can see their counselor to obtain a fee waiver.
