  • Tuition Waiver Applications Due for Summer


    MnSCU employees and dependents that are eligible for a tuition waiver should complete the waiver application within 10 days of the beginning of classes. If the waiver is the only method of payment on your account, please complete this form as soon as possible. This will allow Human Resources sufficient time to process the waiver prior to the fifth day of classes (May 27), and avoid the possibility of your registrations being cancelled for nonpayment. Information about how to complete a waiver request is available at www.smsu.edu/administration/humanresources/?id=7981 Questions about the waiver process should be directed to Business Services or Human Resources.
