5.12.2 – Procedure – Tuition Waiver for Persons Under the Guardianship of the Commissioner of Human Services
Part 1: Authority. M.S. 136F.70, Subd. 1, provides authority to waive tuition for certain persons, courses, and programs.
Part 2: General Provision. The President or designee may waive tuition for persons under the age of 21 who are under the
guardianship of the commissioner of human services provided that those persons are qualified for admission to the college and that those persons contribute toward their expenses by gainful employment if they are able to work.
The President or designee may continue to waive tuition for persons removed from the guardianship of the commissioner of human services until they reach the age of 21 provided those persons were under the guardianship of the commissioner of human services when they reached the age of 18, are qualified for admission to the college, and contribute toward their
expenses by gainful employment if they are able to work.
If the person has attained the age of 21 and has made satisfactory progress in his/her academic program but has not completed the program, the individual may petition the college through their academic program advisor for continuation of the waiver until that program is completed. The academic program advisor will make a recommendation to the President or designee. The decision to continue to waive tuition will be at the discretion of the President or designee.
