International and Superior Out-of-State Student Waiver Policy

This waiver is defined as one intended for international students and superior out-of-state students selected by the institutional president or an authorized representative, provided that the number of such waivers in effect does not exceed 2% of the equivalent full-time students enrolled at the institution in the fall term immediately preceding the term for which the out-of-state tuition is to be waived (BoR Minutes, April 2012, October 2013). Any student wishing to apply for this waiver must meet certain expectations and follow the appropriate steps toward making an application. The student must prepare a one page personal essay outlining why he/she is seeking the waiver and how he/she would benefit by receiving the waiver. The student must also submit a letter of recommendation that references their academic and community involvement.
