The College of Natural Sciences Common Scholarship Application, which includes the waiver application, is now available for current CNS students.  Be sure to carefully read the instructions before applying.  Current students can access the 2021-2022 CNS Common Scholarship Application here.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students should contact scholarships@cns.utexas.edu for information on how to apply as the CNS Common Scholarship Application is for current students only.

The deadline for all students to apply for an Out-of-State Tuition Waiver is March 15, 2021 (11:59 PM CST).  You must apply for a 2021-2022 waiver by the March 15 deadline regardless of your scholarship and/or admission status at the time of the deadline.  Late applications are not accepted.

Out-of-State Tuition Waivers allow non-resident students to pay tuition at in-state rates.  In order to be eligible for a waiver through CNS, students must be a recipient of a scholarship worth at least $1000 that has been administered and awarded by the University. Being a recipient of a scholarship does not guarantee a student of a waiver, it simply makes them eligible should they complete the proper waiver application and should the scholarship committee rank their application highly enough. We normally receive 60-70 waiver applications and usually only have between 5-7 waivers to award per year. It is a highly competitive award.

CNS waivers are awarded on a semester-to-semester basis though the intention is to award them for an entire academic year. They are also non-renewable awards, which means students must apply for a waiver on a yearly basis. There is no guarantee that a student would receive a wavier from one year to the next. Out-of-state students should plan on paying out-of-state tuition for the entire four years at UT as waivers for undergraduates are extremely limited, not only through CNS but across campus as well.

Current CNS students interested in being considered for a waiver should submit the CNS Common Scholarship Application by the established deadline regardless of their scholarship status at that time.  Incoming freshmen and transfer students should contact scholarships@cns.utexas.edu for information on how to apply, but must also submit an application by the established deadline regardless of their scholarship status at that time.  Late applications are not accepted.
