Tuition Remission

Tuition Remission (also referred to as a waiver)  is a benefit to graduate and professional students holding a Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant, Program/Project Assistant or Lecturer Student Assistant appointment to help alleviate the cost of tuition. The non-resident and instructional tuition charges are waived for eligible graduate and professional students. Segregated fees are not waived.

Graduate and professional students eligible for a Fellowship or Eligible Instructional Academic Staff title remission will only have their non-resident tuition waived.

Students enrolled in a program with a service-based pricing tuition structure may accept graduate assistantships (including those above 33.33%); however, they will not receive the tuition remission that is typically part of the compensation package for a graduate assistantship. For more information, please refer to your department. 

If you are expecting a Tuition Remission waiver, but it is not reflected on your student account bill, please contact your Department.
