Idaho’s Lewis-Clark State College announced Monday it will stop charging an application fee for students sending in the paper form and drop the online application fee to $5.25.

The Lewiston school was already the application-fee bargain for Idaho’s four-year state schools at $35.

Idaho State University raised its fee starting in July from $40 to $50. Boise State also charges $50 for hopeful students, a fact that was oddly difficult to find on the university’s website. The site mentioned a non-refundable application fee in several places but it took some searching to find the amount.

The University of Idaho has the most expensive application at $60. Apparently, the U of I also has the opposite opinion of online vs. paper applications as LCSC. Idaho charges $60 for an online application to grad school but it's $85 if you want to submit a paper copy.

If you want to go out of state and you're looking for name recognition, you can apply to Harvard and Yale for $75 each.
