Limits of the Amount of Tuition Support That Can be Awarded to a Degree Seeking Graduate Student

Adopted by the Ohio University Graduate Council 14 April 2006.

 

Beginning with Fall 2006-07, we will no longer use the number of subsidy hours to determine eligibility for a graduate tuition scholarship. Instead, eligibility for a tuition scholarship will be based on the number of quarters in which a student has received such a scholarship at Ohio University. The rules set the MAXIMUM number of quarters in which a student could receive support. Colleges and programs may have more restrictive limitations than the university policy.

The counting of quarters of eligibility will NOT include summer quarters.

Any student who receives any tuition support from the University will be considered to have received a tuition scholarship.

 

Quarter Limits on Tuition Support

A graduate level student with an awarded graduate degree from another institution can receive no more than 15 quarters of tuition scholarship from any department or combination of departments.

A graduate level student without an awarded graduate degree from another institution or one who has earned a graduate degree from Ohio University can receive no more than 18 quarters of tuition scholarship from any department or combination of departments.

No Ohio University graduate student can ever receive more that 18 quarters of graduate tuition scholarship from any department or combination of departments.

After a student has received the maximum number of quarters of tuition scholarship, that student will no longer be eligible to receive a tuition scholarship from any Ohio University program or department.

After a student has received the maximum number of quarters of tuition scholarship, that student could still receive a stipend without a Tuition Scholarship.

This limitation does not apply to employee fee waivers.
