Non-Resident Tuition Waivers (NRTW)
There are several categories of non-resident tuition waivers. In each case a different contact person or procedure must be followed in applying for these. It is important to note that these waivers do not cover the required in-state enrollment fees, but only the non-resident tuition. Unless other scholarships are awarded, the student must pay the in-state enrollment fees each semester or term.
Graduate School Awardees (Limited Number)
These are distributed on a competitive basis by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research. Students should apply using the form supplied by the Graduate Studies office. Application must be received by April 1st for Fall Semester consideration and by November 1st for Spring Semester. The non-resident tuition waiver may be granted for the academic year or for one semester only.
Graduate Assistants and Fellows
All assistants and fellows approved by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research are granted a non-resident tuition scholarship each semester. This is not the same as the in-state enrollment fee award, although both may be offered in one letter by the department.
Other Non-Resident Tuition Waivers (NRTW)
Additional waivers beyond those listed above may be available and require application to the appropriate office. Most of these are awarded on a competitive basis. Occasionally a department may have a special NRTW. Contact and application may be made to the offices listed below.
