Graduate Assistant/Teaching Associate Fee Waiver Program

Fee waivers are granted each academic year to eligible students who are hired by their departments as either Graduate Assistants or Teaching Associates. Criteria also requires that students be in classified standing, planning full-time enrollment, maintaining a GPA of 3.0 in their last 60 units of coursework with no grades below a B, and are making satisfactory progress toward the graduate degree. Students who are underrepresented in their fields of study are given priority in the selection process.

Nomination forms are circulated each spring semester. Departments wishing to award fee waivers submit nominations to the Graduate Studies Office through their school deans. Departments are notified of awards and students receive letters of confirmation in the summer months prior to the academic year in which the student is receiving the fee waiver.
