Part 1. Authority. M.S. 136F.70, Subd. 1, provides the board with authority to waive tuition for certain persons, courses, and programs.

Part 2. General Provision. The presidents 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 a Minnesota state college or university and that those persons contribute toward their expenses by gainful employment if they are able to work.

The president 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 a Minnesota state college or university, 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 or university 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. The decision to continue to waive tuition will be at the discretion of the president.
