Bursar's Office | Tuition/Fee Exemptions and Waivers

The Comptroller’s Office maintains a listing of all current Legislative Tuition/Fee Exemption and Waivers for each legislatively mandated tuition/fee exemption and its corresponding Louisiana Revised Statute (LRS). Exemptions/Waivers are only available during regular registration. No exemptions or waivers will be processed during late registration or any time thereafter. Under no circumstances will any exemptions/waivers be processed for a previous term. Students must demonstrate eligibility, and they are responsible for requesting the waivers and certifying eligibility pertaining to the specific waiver with the Comptroller’s Office. The University reserves the right to administer unfunded legislative mandated exemptions and waivers based on fund and classroom space availability. All tuition/fee exemption & waiver request must be made by the 14th day of class. Request made after the 14th class day (fall & spring semesters) and the 7th class day (summer semester) will not be honored.
