Several kinds of tuition waivers are available to Roxbury Community College students. These waivers include, but are not limited to, members of the National Guard, veterans, senior citizens, Native Americans, state employees, and wards of the state. In order to receive a tuition waiver, you must present the waiver at the time of registration or before the first day of class. If you present the waiver after the first day of class, the College will make no adjustment.  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not fund all courses; therefore, the use of certain waivers for those unfunded courses will be restricted.

Students with approved tuition waivers, tuition remissions, or tuition vouchers may register on a space-available basis, and fees must be paid. Tuition waivers, tuition remission, or tuition vouchers do not apply to special programs, seminars, or private instruction administered by the Division of Continuing Education (DCE). Also, certain tuition waivers, which apply to the state supported day division, do not apply to the Division of Continuing Education programs, including summer sessions. For example, the National Guard waiver cannot be applied to Division of Continuing Education programs.
