In order to process refunds we must have this information. If the information is not provided, the refund is held-up. Please call the grant specialist for assistance if needed!

RECIPROCITY

The Reciprocity Agreement has been approved by the Joint Committee on Finance. The only change is a clarification paragraph on what tuition is charged for TAs, RAs and PAs who are reciprocity students. The new paragraph reads:

Graduate students who receive a tuition waiver as a benefit of employment at the institution shall be eligible and counted under the agreement. The tuition reported by the institution to the administering agency shall be the reciprocity tuition rate for graduate students at that institution.
