MIS Tuition Waivers

Each academic year, the Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS) program offers tuition waivers as a way to assist students with the cost of pursuing their degree. All students, regardless of prior award of tuition waivers, must submit the form below. The annual application deadline is May 31st. All tuition waivers are available based on funding each academic year. If funding is unavailable, tuition waivers may not be awarded in any given academic year.

Definition and Amounts

Tuition waivers are awarded in various amounts as a credit toward your tuition expense and have no cash value. For example, tuition waivers cannot be used for fees or books.

Students receiving a tuition waiver are expected to enroll in 6 or more credit hours per semester and maintain a 3.0 GPA. Students are not expected to work in any capacity in exchange for a tuition waiver.

Students are free to seek full-time or part-time employment or an internship regardless of receiving a tuition waiver. See Jobs for T-Birds for on-campus, and sometimes remote, student positions.

Students receiving other SUU tuition waivers will not qualify for this tuition waiver.

Out-of-state/online-only students are not eligible for a tuition waiver because they are already receiving in-state tuition (a significant discount).

SUU's Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships can provide more information on funding options. They also provide a link to Graduate Aid. Moreover, depending on the first letter of your last name, you will be assigned a financial aid counselor.
