From the semester you start your graduate courses;
If you are a Master’ s student after 4 semesters,
If you are a PhD student after 8 semesters,
After 10 semesters, if you are a Ph.D. student who has started directly after your undergraduate program,
you start paying student tuition.
Students who are Research Assistants at a state university do not pay tuition on condition that they document their status.
