For MAPR Calculation purposes we are required to include "application fee" would this be the same thing as an "origination fee"?

I am not sure if application fee and origination fee are synonymous, I would say that they are not. That said, finance charges are required to be included in the MAPR calculation and an origination fee is a finance charge.

The definitions of an application fee and an origination fee in my mind are different, but your definition can certainly vary. Regardless, the MAPR rules address this based on the plain language of the term, "application fee" and it's included:
