Tuition awards are pro-rated based on the level of appointment; for example, a doctoral student on 2/3-time appointment would receive 6 hours tuition in a semester and a master’s student 5.34 hours. However, the usual enrollment requirement remains full-time for all appointees (6 hours Fall/Spring, 3 hours Summer I or II) even for partial appointments; if the tuition award does not meet the enrollment requirement, the student must pay the difference. The tuition award amount is based on current on-campus tuition rates.
Depending on your residency status, the tuition award may not cover all of, or automatically apply to, enrollments in off-campus or online courses or other alternative course modalities. In some cases, a department will agree to pay extra for such enrollments but this is not automatic. If your tuition award is not showing on your account or has not paid for some reason, you should check first with your hiring department.
