Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Applications are now being accepted for the Marshall University Graduate Scholarship Tuition Waiver program for the fall 2013 semester, according to Dr. Donna Spindel, dean of the Graduate College.

The  program provides tuition assistance for a limited number of Marshall  University graduate students and Marshall University full-time faculty  and staff employees.

Applicants must be currently admitted and  enrolled in a graduate degree-granting or certificate program at  Marshall University.  Up to three hours of waiver for graduate  coursework will be awarded to qualified applicants. The waiver does not  cover online courses.

The awarding of waivers is competitive and  is made on the basis of academic achievement and promise, Spindel said.  Beginning with the fall semester of 2013, students are eligible for one  award in three consecutive semesters (i.e., a student who receives an  award in fall 2013 is not eligible for another award until fall 2014; a  student who receives an award in spring 2014 is not eligible for another award until Spring 2015; a student who receives an award in summer 2014 is not eligible for another award until summer 2015). In addition,  beginning with the fall 2013 scholarship waiver period, students are  limited to a maximum of four awards. (Past awards do not apply.)

Deadline for the applications is Friday, July 26. Applicants who are awarded  waivers will be notified by e-mail. Waivers are posted to student  accounts within 10 business days of approval and registration. Award  recipients are responsible for any amount not covered by the waiver.  Balances must be paid by the tuition/fee due date noted on the Bursar  website at

Applicants must be registered for graduate courses for fall 2013 by Friday, Aug.  9, in order to receive a waiver. Spindel said applicants are encouraged  to register for classes at the same time they submit a waiver  application. Waivers for students who are not registered by Aug. 9 will  be assigned to other qualified applicants.

Applications are  available in the Graduate College office (Old Main 113) on the  Huntington campus, through a student's academic department office on the South Charleston campus, or online at Completed waiver applications may be mailed, emailed, faxed or submitted in person.
