University-Specific Graduate Assistant Benefits

Tuition Remission and Out of State Tuition Waiver

A Graduate Assistant (GA) concurrently employed during the fall and spring academic semesters will be charged at the GA Reduced Tuition rate in place of non-resident tuition rates.

To receive this benefit, a student must enroll in the student health insurance program during their open enrollment period. Students enrolled in the plan cannot cancel their coverage after the open enrollment period, even if they resign or are terminated. Students who resign or are terminated during the period of coverage will be responsible for payment of the premium. A student will be automatically re-enrolled in the student health insurance program upon enrollment in the subsequent major academic term. One must take action to cancel or modify their enrollment in this plan.
