Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver

Keep the tradition alive.

Did one of your parents or grandparents earn a degree from USU? If so, you can now attend Utah State and the nonresident portion of tuition will be waived. Follow your parents' or grandparents' footsteps and become an Aggie. We want you here! To qualify for the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver, a future Aggie must:

  • Be admitted.
  • Have at least one parent or grandparent who earned an associate degree or higher from Utah State University (application required).
  • Enroll at USU as a first-time student.

Deadlines

Spring Semester: November 1
Fall Semester: August 1

*Note: Awarding of the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver for fall semester will start on December 1 and will continue to be awarded monthly until the August 1 deadline.

Time spent in Utah on the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver cannot be counted towards establishing resident student status. If you would like to discuss other options, please email Tad Sorenson at tad.sorenson@usu.edu.

The Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver was implemented July 1, 2009 and made possible by the signing of House Bill 364. The addition of grandparents to the waiver was implemented July 1, 2013 and made possible by the signing of Senate Bill 51.

*Note: Other requirements may apply. For further scholarship information, please contact the USU Admissions Office at 800.488.8108 or visit us in person at the Taggart Student Center, Room 102.
