Graduate Assistant Tuition Benefits
Graduate assistant tuition benefits cover tuition and all or a portion of the University fee, according to the appointment percentage and the number of registered credits. Eligibility requirements and detailed provisions for graduate tuition benefits are found in Appendix: Graduate Assistant Tuition Benefits. Graduate assistants are responsible for payment of charges not covered by the GA tuition benefit, such as lab, installment, late charge, or late registration fees that are assessed and charged to the students' account.
Resident Tuition Rate
In addition to tuition benefits, both current and former graduate assistants may be eligible to receive a non-resident tuition waiver. Retroactive requests for resident tuition rate reductions will not be considered beyond one academic year from the date of the semester in which the request is made. Graduate assistants whose appointment equals a minimum of 195 hours each semester are eligible to receive a non-resident tuition waiver (if applicable). Please note: Residency is determined at the time of admission. Refer to Appendix: Resident Tuition Rate for detailed information.
