Tuition Waivers

MBAFor all USU Graduate School finances and support information, please visit their page.

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 toward establishing Utah residency for tuition purposes.

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

Any questions you have regarding the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Scholarship may be directed to Erin Anderson, Admissions Officer in the School of Graduate Studies, at or by phone at 435-797-3724 or 435-797-3724.
