Resident Tuition and limited Non-Resident Tuition waivers are awarded by University offices or academic departments and authorized by Financial Aid Services. Resident Tuition waivers can be used to reduce a student's Resident Tuition charged up to the total amount awarded for each semester. Resident Tuition waivers cannot be used to pay other fees or charges on a student's account. Non-Resident Tuition waivers can be used to reduce a student's Non-Resident Tuition charges up to the total amount awarded each semester. Non-Resident Tuition waivers cannot be used to pay Resident Tuition or other charges on a student's account. These waivers cannot be converted into cash or held for another academic year. Other scholarships awarded by the University and cash scholarships sent to the University from outside sources will be held at Bursar Services. These funds are received throughout the semester and each recipient must check with Bursar Services to determine the application of these funds. It is the student's responsibility to verify that all financial aid and scholarships have been applied to their account prior to the deadlines to avoid service charges or other University sanctions.
