Tuition waivers (called Responsibility Center Unit Waivers or RC Waivers) for graduate students may be available through the student’s academic unit or academic college. Waivers may cover any portion of the graduate student’s tuition including program fees and/or differential tuition. Waivers may not cover the mandatory registration fees or student health insurance. Graduate students enrolled in programs through UA Online are not eligible for these resources. Interested students should contact their academic units for information.


Eligibility standards and award deadlines for RC waivers are determined by the college.


Information/Instructions for Academic Units

Awarding units should process RC waivers like the former college GTS using the UAccess Student Financial Aid External Awards system. RC waivers are assigned a different account number and may have a different item type. College deans offices have the budget and item type information for individual academic units.


Students should contact the Graduate Coordinator or Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) in the respective academic unit for award availability and deadlines.
