Waiver of Non-Resident Portion of Tuition

Legacy Waiver: Students whose parent or grandparent earned an associate degree or higher from USU receive resident tuition. To qualify for the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver, a future Aggie must:

  • Be admitted.
  • Have at least one parent or grandparent who earned an associate degree or higher from Utah State University.
  • Enroll at USU as a first-time student.

Non-Resident Tuition Waiver for Excellence: This one-year non-resident tuition waiver is available for all new students applying to USU's School of Graduate Studies whose GPA and GMAT scores are above the average of the same admission scores for all current students in the Huntsman School of Business (please contact for the most recent averages). Additional information about the tuition waiver can be obtained here.

Financial Assistance for MAcc Students

The School of Accountancy offers both scholarships and graduate assistantships on a competitive basis. Approximately 15 to 20 scholarships and 12 to 15 graduate assistantships are awarded per academic year. Applications must be submitted to the School of Accountancy by March 1st. Awards are generally announced by the first week of April.

Graduate Assistantships

Assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis to students who have good scholastic and communication skills. International students are eligible to apply for an assistantship after attending one year at an English language university.

Students are assigned to work approximately 10 hours per week with a faculty member as a grader, lab assistant, or research assistant and will be paid $1,600 per semester. Students must be enrolled in graduate level accounting courses. Enrollment in pre-requisite courses will not qualify a student to receive the assistantship. Students must have a U.S. Social Security card before the award can be finalized.
