Graduate students can apply for waivers

Oct. 21, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Applications are now being accepted for the Marshall University Graduate Scholarship Tuition Waiver program for the spring 2013 semester.

The program provides tuition assistance for graduate students and full-time faculty and staff employees.

Applicants must be currently admitted and enrolled in a graduate degree-granting or certificate program at Marshall University. Up to three hours of waiver for graduate coursework will be awarded to qualified applicants. The waiver does not cover online courses.

The awarding of waivers is competitive and is made on the basis of academic achievement and promise, Spindel said. Students who received a Graduate Scholarship Tuition Waiver for fall term, 2012, are not eligible for a waiver for spring 2013.

The deadline for applications is Friday, Nov. 9. Applicants who are awarded waivers will be notified by email. Waivers are posted to student accounts within 10 business days of approval and registration. Award recipients are responsible for any amount not covered by the waiver. Balances must be paid by the tuition/fee due date noted on the Bursar website at www.marshall.edu/bursar/tuition/dates.html.

Applicants must be registered for graduate courses for spring 2013 by Friday, Dec. 7, in order to receive a waiver. Waivers for students who are not registered by Dec. 7 will be assigned to other qualified applicants.

Applications are available in the Graduate College office, Old Main 113; through a student's academic department office on the South Charleston campus; or online at www.marshall.edu/graduate/tuitionwaivers.asp. Completed waiver applications must be submitted in person or by U.S. Mail. Faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted.
