Waivers & Exemptions

Some students have received tuition and fee waivers or are exempt from particular fees.


If you receive a waiver, you are assessed the amount of the charge but the amount is waived by university policy. You are eligible to receive the benefits of the service provided by the normal assessment of the fee. Tuition and fee waivers are not granted for self-supporting or other full-cost programs.


If you are exempt from a particular fee, you are not eligible to receive the benefits of the services provided by the fee. If you have an exemption from any fee because you are registered in credit ranges III or IV, you may obtain the benefits of the service provided by making individual arrangements.
