Supplemental Tuition Waiver Policies

Students are eligible to apply for graduate fee waivers in FGCU’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program after completing 6 credit hours following admission to the program and having earned a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Application for a tuition waiver from the Division of Public Affairs requires:

Eligible MPA students may be awarded tuition waivers for either in-state or out-of state graduate fees to cover tuition only. Students receiving graduate fee waivers are responsible for paying all other student fees assessed by the FGCU Bursar.

Waiver awards are based on the University’s established selection criteria of recruitment, retention, diversity, and service. Review of applications begins following the deadline for each term (fall, summer, spring). Applications are submitted for each term that the student requests a waiver. Applying for one term neither guarantees nor implies a continuation or renewal of the fee for subsequent terms.

The following factors are considered when awarding tuition waivers, within the limits of funding availability:

  • Out of state/in-state status
  • Employment status (full-time/part-time)
  • Financial need
  • Scholarship (GPA)
  • Other factors related to the need for tuition support as determined by the Division Chairperson.

Tuition waiver awards are for one term only. Students must reapply for a graduate tuition waiver each term using the Supplemental Application Form and the FGCU Graduate Student Tuition Waiver Application.

Application Deadlines:

Fall Term May 1st
Spring Term October 1st
Summer Term March 1st
