Awarding Process

The awarding sequence for tuition remission recipients is as follows:

  • Federal and state grants will be applied first. This will require families to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Institutional aid will be applied next, including but not limited to academic scholarships and/or Cornerstone need-based grants.
  • The tuition waiver will then be applied to the remaining tuition balance amount.
    Please Note: The Tuition Waiver Exchange program covers the cost of tuition only. Room and board charges and non-tuition charges are the responsibility of the student.
