Fee-Waiver and Discount Programs

Fee-waiver/discount forms must be completed and submitted to the Cashier's Office every semester.

The Cashier's Office begins accepting fee waivers/discount forms as follows:

  • Fall Semester : On or after July 1
  • Spring Semester : On or after November 1
  • Summer Semester : On or after April 1

All forms must be complete and signed by all required parties on or after the corresponding dates as listed below. Cashiers do not determine eligibility for fee waivers or discounts.
