Certain RI residents may be eligible for fee waivers including those receiving unemployment benefits, senior citizens (at least 60 years old), and disabled veterans. Members of the RI National Guard may apply for a waiver through the STEP program by contacting their TING commander. Waiver students may not register for classes until the last day before classes begin.
Courses Not Eligible for Waiver Consideration
Courses in which instructional costs are directly affected by the number of students enrolled are not eligible for tuition waiver. For example: student teaching, applied music, independent study, some continuing education courses, and some courses with clinical requirements and internships.
