Tuition Waivers

Alumni Legacy Nonresident Scholarship

The Alumni Legacy Nonresident Scholarship waives the nonresident portion of tuition and is automatically renewed each semester as long as the student remains in good standing.

Criteria: A student must be admitted into a graduate program, have a least one parent or grandparent (biological, step, or legal guardian) who earned an associate's degree or higher from Utah State University, and enroll as a first-time graduate student at USU. Time spent in Utah on the scholarship cannot be counted towards establishing Utah residency for tuition purposes.

Application Process: After being accepted into a graduate program at USU, complete the Alumni Legacy Verification Form and submit to the School of Graduate Studies.
