Most graduate students, who hold assistantship positions of at least 25% of the time,
are eligible for tuition benefits. Tuition remission is awarded by the University to reduce
the amount of tuition you pay. Tuition remission is credited to your student account.
Financial Aid assumes that most graduate students will hold an assistantship and
receive tuition remission; thus tuition remission may be included on your award
package. However, the estimated tuition remission is not a guarantee that you will
receive an assistantship or other academic appointments.
Dependent children of current employees, retirees and deceased employees are
eligible for tuition remission.
Full-time members of the faculty and staff of Howard University who have served a
minimum of one year continuous service are also entitled to remission of tuition. For
