The Marshall University Graduate Scholarship Tuition Waiver Program provides tuition assistance for a very limited number of Marshall University graduate students and Marshall University full-time faculty and staff employees.

Applicants must be currently admitted and enrolled in a graduate degree-granting or certificate program at Marshall University. The awarding of waivers is extremely competitive and is made on the basis of academic achievement and promise.

Student Waiver Information:

  • Students who received a Graduate Scholarship Tuition Waiver for Summer 2014 or Fall 2014 are NOT eligible for a waiver for Spring 2015.
  • Students cannot hold a Graduate Assistant position and a tuition waiver at the same time.
  • Student waivers have a maximum value of $750 to cover the cost of up to three credit hours for graduate course work. The waiver does not cover online courses.
  • Students in the Pharmacy, Physical Therapy or Public Health programs are not eligible for the tuition waiver.

Faculty/Staff Waiver Information:

  • Faculty/Staff employee benefit waivers are available to all full-time faculty/staff employees of Marshall University and cover the complete cost of up to three credit hours for graduate course work (with the exception of required fees). The waiver does not cover online courses.

Application Process

  • Applicants who are awarded waivers will be notified by email at the close of the application period. Waivers are posted to student accounts within 10 business days of approval and registration. Award recipients are responsible for any amount not covered by the waiver. Balances must be paid by the tuition/fee due date noted on the Bursar site: http://www.marshall.edu/bursar/.
  • Please note that award recipients must be registered for graduate courses for Spring 2015 by Monday, December 8, 2014. We encourage applicants to register for classes at the same time they submit a waiver application. Waivers for students who are not registered by Monday, December 8, 2014, will be assigned to other qualified applicants.
