Does a tuition waiver cover the cost of all of my classes?
Not quite. If you receive a waiver, it will cover 9 credit hours for fall and 9 credit hours for spring, each year you have the waiver. During the summer between your first and second year of the program, you will complete your first internship. Our students have been very successful in securing highly competitive internships through ACUHO-I, NODA, and other national internship processes. As a result, our students are often placed in a variety of positions all over the country at a wide variety of colleges and universities, which is incredibly beneficial for them professionally.
For the summer internship, students are required to register for a 5-credit internship and the 1-credit group supervision course, which are held online to allow students to be in a variety of locations geographically. Since students are not employed in their assistantships/positions during the summer term (which allows them to get a variety of professional experiences), the tuition waiver does not cover these 6-credit hours. Therefore, students are responsible for paying for those hours.
