POLICY ON THE WELCOME HOME WAIVER PROGRAM
The University shall award an annual mandatory fee waiver of up to $2,000 to all degree-seeking Massachusetts resident undergraduate and graduate student veterans who have received a bonus from the commonwealth pursuant to Subsection (1) of Section 16 of Chapter 130 of the Acts of 2005.
Said waivers are granted for a maximum of eight semesters, or $8,000, to recipients who maintain good academic standing while taking twelve or more credits each semester in state supported courses.
In the future the University will integrate this program with any new State or Federal programs providing educational benefits to Massachusetts resident student veterans.
