Students on assistantships of at least 1/3 time: You cannot have this waiver as well as the assistantship tuition waiver. Please do not request this waiver until such time as you do not have an assistantship.
Doctoral students who were admitted to candidacy prior to August 16, 2007, must request the waiver using the Application for Waiver of Graduate Out-of-State Tuition. The waiver will be effective for the semester following the semester the request was received (must be received prior to the last day of classes to be entered for the next semester). Get the form.
Doctoral students who are admitted to candidacy after August 16, 2007, will automatically be granted the out-of-state tuition waiver by Graduate School staff if they do not have an assistantship waiver. The waiver will be effective the semester following the semester in which the student is admitted to candidacy (must be admitted prior to the last day of classes).
Master’s students who are required to submit a thesis to the Graduate School are eligible for the out-of-state waiver after all courses on the program of study have received a grade with the exception of 7000 (research) & 7300 (thesis writing). A program of study form must be on file in the Graduate School. All students in this category must submit the Application for Waiver of Graduate Out-of-State Tuition to the Graduate School by the last day of classes for the semester prior to the eligible semester.
