Tuition waivers are applied toward student tuition charges based on an enrollment of 12 credit hours in a semester. If a student is enrolled for less than 12 credit hours, the waiver award will be prorated based on the number of credits. For example, a student is awarded $1,000 tuition waiver per semester, the student enrolls for 11 credits – he/she will receive 11/15 or $740 of the $1,000 waiver.
Student tuition waivers are not applicable to online courses.
