Waivers and tuition discounts are applied to a students account as a credit towards tuition charges for eligible students; a small number of waivers can be applied to charges such as books and student fees. Since waivers and tuition discounts reduce the cost of attendance they are calculated as part of a student’s award package.
North Dakota State University is pleased to offer the Cultural Diversity Tuition Waiver to qualified students. For the purpose of the Cultural Diversity Tuition Waiver, cultural diversity is defined as anyone who comes from the following underrepresented groups:
- Native American/American Indian
