There is an opportunity to have tuition for certain elective courses waived if 1) the elective course is not needed to court towards your degree requirements (required courses + 12 hours of electives, and 2) you are taking the non-required course while you are taking at least one course that will count towards your graduate degree. If you are planning to take a course like this, you should 1) remove the course from your Planned Program of Study (PPOS) and get your PPOS approved without listing that course, and 2) apply well in advance of taking the course(s) for a fellowship from the School of Graduate Studies:
