Does my assistantship include tuition remission?
The level of tuition remission will be commensurate with the level of your assistantship appointment. If you have a half-time appointment (10 hours per week), you are eligible for tuition remission of one-half of the resident (in-state) tuition. If you have a full-time appointment (20 hours per week), you are eligible to receive full resident (in-state) tuition remission. Tuition remission does not include local fees (building fee, financial aid fee, activity and service fee, athletic fee, etc.); however, some hiring departments do cover all or part of these local fees.
