NAU graduate assistantships & tuition waivers
What is a tuition waiver?
NAU tuition waivers are scholarships which pay for all or part of a student’s tuition, and may be awarded to full-time graduate degree-seeking students based on academic merit and/or financial need. These are available to both resident and non-resident graduate students. If a student’s program offers tuition waiver scholarships, the application process is available through the program.
