Educational fee waivers are granted to academic institutions whose curriculum relates specifically to the resources in Acadia National Park.
Fee Waiver Information
National Park Service regulations allow academic institutions to obtain a waiver of park entrance fees, provided the visit is for academic or scientific purposes, and the resources or facilities that the group intends to use support those purposes.
A school group does not automatically qualify for a fee-waiver just because the visit is educational. Academic groups must demonstrate that they qualify for the waiver by meeting each of the three requirements listed below:
1. Eligibility Applicants must prove they are an academic or scientific institution.
Entrance fee waivers are granted only if each of the above three criteria are met.
Please send completed applications along with the required documentation to the Fee Management Office at Acadia National Park at firstname.lastname@example.org
