Tuition Waivers

Hunter College offers full or partial tuition waivers to certain students who are employed by the school or qualify in some other way.

All waivers must be received prior to your payment due date to avoid the cancellation of your registration and timely payment. If your waiver is going to be late, please contact the Bursar’s Office and your counselor/program at Hunter to avoid cancellation. If you provide the Bursar’s Office with your waiver late and the College has already billed CUNY for the term, you will be responsible for paying for your class(es) that the waiver covered.

Most waivers will not pay for: fees, class drop charges, late payment fees, or late registration fees.
