- Prior to Registration Each Quarter
Faculty/staff tuition-exempt students must submit the required Tuition Exemption Request form, signed by his/her employing

s/he wishes to use the exemption, to the Registration Office, Box 355850, 225 Schmitz Hall.
Tuition-exempt students may not register for any credits before the third day of the quarter (or they will be charged full
BIOST 511 in Autumn may fill prior to the 3rd day of the quarter due to increased enrollment in the School. If you plan to use the
Faculty/Staff Tuition Exemption, you may not be able to get into the class. See Academic Calendar for quarterly dates.
GNM students using the Faculty/Staff Tuition Exemption will be charged about $75 for up to 6 course credits ("course credits" = below the

for at least 2 course credits that are covered by the tuition exemption during the same quarter. In other words, it is more
expensive to take
only the capstone credit in a quarter than to take the capstone plus between 2 and 18 course credits.
