 **A qualifying appointment is defined by the academic calendar term/session (e.g., the definition of a fall/spring semester is 17 weeks – the date classwork begins through the date final exams end). Assignments that begin after the first day of classwork, or ones that end prior to the end of the term, will not count toward tuition waiver eligibility. Students must also be enrolled in the necessary number of graduate-level credit hours to receive tuition waivers and health insurance benefits. Enrollment requirements for fall/spring semester = minimum 6 credit hours; enrollment requirements for summer session = minimum 2 credit hours.
