Graduate Assistant Tuition Remission Program

Graduate Assistants are eligible for up to 6 credits of tuition remission in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The tuition remission to GAs does not cover any additional hours or fees. If a GA decides to enroll in more than 6 credit hours in a semester it will be the responsibility of the GA to cover the difference. GAs that are eligible to receive an athletic scholarship, may receive the scholarship in conjunction with their GA tuition remission, not to exceed tuition.  If the combined aid exceeds tuition, one or more sources will be reduced as no refunds of institutional aid is permitted under any circumstances.

If a Graduate Assistants appointment is terminated by their direct supervisor during a term, the tuition for that class will be prorated for the weeks worked as a graduate assistant. The GA will then be responsible for the remaining tuition for that class. If a Graduate Assistant resigns from his/her graduate assistant position due to unforeseen circumstances prior to the completion of 60% of a term, the tuition for that course will be prorated and the GA will be responsible for the remaining tuition for that class. If over 60% of the term has been completed, it will be at the discretion of the direct supervisor if the tuition for the current class will be fully covered by their GA position.

Please reference the Graduate Assistant Policy Manual to review all GA policies.
