Tuition Remission Rates
A tuition waiver policy for graduate assistantships has been established by each university and authority to waive tuition for graduate students with assistantships is vested in the Graduate College as a unit of the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
As a result of such waivers, the University calculates tuition remission rates which are then charged to sponsored project agreements so that each project (federal and non-federal) pays its fair share of these costs. Our sponsors recognize the importance of such costs and reimburse us for tuition remission costs, expressed as a percentage of the graduate student's salaries (stipend).
The Code of Federal Regulations (Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200) provides guidance on allowability and proper treatment of these costs.
