Yes, though your application would not be considered a high priority for award.

How do I apply for a tuition waiver?

Each department handles tuition waivers differently.  For more information contact your department directly.

If I miss the submission date is there any way I can be considered for a scholarship?

No, however you might wish to look for applications that are still open.  Often the Financial Aid application is open longer than the College of Education Scholarship Application.

What happens to scholarships that are not accepted or given out?

The committee creates a back-up list at the time the awards are made and scholarships are offered to the next student on that list until it is accepted.  If there are no applicants who qualify for a specific scholarship, those funds are either put back into principal to build the endowment or held over to award the next year.
