Autumn 2020 Tuition Waivers

While tuition charges are now posted, financial aid will not disburse until Thursday evening, September 24. Waivers for eligible TA/RA/SAs and Fellows will not disburse until Friday evening, September 25.

 If a waiver has not been placed on a student account by the first week of classes, please verify the following before contacting Fellowships & Awards or Student Fiscal Services:

  • Check that the student number in Workday is entered correctly (student can verify).
  • Check that the employee is a current graduate student registered for at least 10 credits.

Top Scholar Waivers, International Student Tuition Waivers, and General Tuition Waivers will be paid manually by the Graduate School starting the first week of autumn quarter.
