Non-Resident Graduate Tuition Scholarship

For graduate students who are classified as a non-resident (out of state student) for tuition assessment, the Non-Resident Graduate Tuition Scholarship Program provides up to 80% of the difference between resident and non-resident tuition assessment. 

The total value of the scholarship can vary depending on your program of enrollment and total course registrations. At 23-24 tuition rates and using 9 credits of enrollment as an example, the equivalent value per term is $5,050 or just under $10,100 per year!*

Students must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester (3 credit hours in the summer or final semester of the program).
