for tuition purposes. Graduate assistants appointed to at least a 50% position will be classified as

The process for your graduate waiver begins in your employment department. After it is entered in the BASIS system
and approved by your department head, the Graduate School or Graduate School of Business must approve the waiver. Once
the waiver has completed the approval process through BASIS, it is applied to your student account in UAConnect. If your
waiver has not been applied to your student account, contact your department to verify that your waiver has been submitted.
If it has, contact the Graduate School or the Graduate School of Business to request a status report. Once the wavier
applies to your account, any funds used to pay your tuition charges from your financial aid will be refunded to you.
