Costs/Fees

For Participating Programs

ArchCAS™ is available to your program at no cost. That means there is no fee for your program to:

  • Join the ArchCAS community and have your information shared in our central, global portal.
  • Use WebAdMIT™, the ArchCAS admissions management platform.
  • Ease your administrative burden and reduce costs with supplementary services, such as GPA calculation, document (e.g., transcript, letter of recommendation, resume and personal statement) collection and applicant support.

For Applicants

There is no cost for applicants to research programs in ArchCAS. Applicants are charged a $95 per program processing fee when they submit their first application and then $45 for each subsequent program designation. In many instances, this fee can be offset by eliminating the redundancies that exist in today’s application model, such as transcript request fees, mailing fees, etc. Our research has shown that applicants value the convenience of applying through a CAS and that this convenience justifies fees associated with the service.

For over 20 years, Liaison has focused on expanding access to education for students from all backgrounds. We’ll continue this commitment with ArchCAS by working with our advisory board to offer fee waivers for eligible applicants.
