The College of Health and Human Services is pleased to offer nine Tuition Waivers for its students every semester. Tuition Waivers pay for a student’s tuition for a single semester, up to the amount of in-state tuition rates. (Note: The waivers do NOT cover the cost of a student's fees.)
The College is committed to the success of each of its students and has created a College-wide Tuition Waiver Policy to ensure all students have a fair opportunity to apply for tuition waivers.
The current Tuition Waiver Policy distributes tuition waivers to three undergraduate and six graduate students every semester, with preference given to Illinois residents. Three of the graduate tuition waivers are reserved for minority students.*
Waivers are awarded on a rotational basis among programs.
* The definition of “minority” is as follows: African-American, Native American, Hispanic or Underrepresented Asian (Chinese, Japanese or Korean are not underrepresented).
There are three undergraduate tuition waivers awarded each semester.
The following undergraduate programs are eligible to award tuition waivers for the Summer 2013 Semester:
- COMH (Community Health)
- NURS (Nursing)
- SOCW (Social Work)
There are six graduate tuition waivers awarded each semester.
