CSUMB has a limited number of Graduate Tuition Fee Waivers to offer each semester.  When available, waivers may be awarded to graduate students who are currently enrolled and employed as Graduate Research Assistants (Employee Class Code 2355) or Teaching Associates (Employee Class Codes 2353, 2354) in state supported graduate programs at CSUMB. The Graduate Tuition Fee Waiver will waive the Tuition Fee per eligible term. Students are responsible for paying any additional campus fees accrued in addition to their Tuition Fee.

This form must be submitted by you or your program coordinator to the Office of Graduate Studies & Research by May 1st for Fall semester and December 1st for Spring semester.  Submit requests for Fall and Spring forms separately.   If you are taking fewer than 8 units, append an explanation.  Students must continue to serve in their assistantship each term they receive the waiver.
