Reference:Point 10 within the OSU Graduate Tuition Remission Allocation Model located on Page 9 of Graduate Tuition Remission Policy document
Scope:This program provides the Graduate Dean the authority to award graduate tuition remission to eligible students who do not fall into the categories provided by items #5 through #9 in the Graduate Tuition Remission Allocation Model, if doing so meets other institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success.
Intent:To provide the Graduate Dean flexibility in responding to institutional needs as specified under "scope".
Criteria:Student must be a degree-seeking graduate student. Other criteria will be determined on a case by case basis.
Procedures:Academic units may submit written requests to the Graduate School. The request must demonstrate how the award would advance institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success.
Award Level:Determined on a case by case basis, but not to exceed the value of full time graduate tuition each term of the award period as appropriate for the student's residency status.
Award Distribution:Tuition support will be posted directly to the student's account as a scholarship at the beginning of each academic term during the award period, pending the student's eligibility and 12-credit enrollment for the term.
Deadline:To be given priority consideration, academic units must submit requests to the Graduate School by February 15 each year. After the priority deadline, requests will be considered on a rolling basis as funds are available.
