MIS Tuition Waivers

Each academic year, the Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS) program offers tuition waivers and graduate assistantships 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 and graduate assistantships are available based on funding each academic year. If funding is unavailable, tuition waivers and/or graduate assistantships 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. Students receiving other tuition waivers will not be qualified for this tuition waiver. Out-of-state/online-only students and international students are not eligible for a tuition waiver at this time.

Please visit the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships or the Office of International Affairs for more information on funding options.

Graduate Assistantship

The MIS program may employee a graduate assistant each year. Other graduate assistant positions are available across campus. See Jobs for T-Birds for current vacancies.
