500.13 Tuition Remission for Graduate Students Supported by Sponsored Funds
Responsible Officer: Director
Responsible Unit: Award Management
Effective date: July 1, 2008
Last revised on: July 21, 2011
As with other salaries supported by sponsored funding, eligible graduate students of research project teams may be compensated with a partial tuition waiver based on the percentage of effort the individual graduate student will work on the project. The tuition rates differ depending on the applicable graduate program.
Reason for Policy
Procedures and Related Policies
Tuition is calculated by multiplying the graduate student’s predicted percent of effort on the project times the tuition cost of his/her particular graduate program.
For example, 25% effort times the fee for a state resident Journalism graduate student taking 4 hours in the 2007-08 academic year =
.25 x $1,988.52 =
$497.13 or approximately $500 of tuition cost paid by the sponsor.
