Program Details:

The Alumni Legacy Waiver is renewable for up to 4-years (8 full-time semesters) and requires full-time enrollment of 15 or more credit hours.

Time spent in Utah on the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver can now be counted towards establishing resident student status.

The Alumni Legacy Nonresident Waiver was implemented July 1, 2009 and made possible by the signing of House Bill 364. The addition of grandparents to the waiver was implemented July 1, 2013 and made possible by the signing of Senate Bill 51. You can read the most updated version of this bill online here.

Participants in the Legacy program must do the following to remain eligible:

  • Complete no less than 15 credit hours per semester. The Legacy Waiver will not pay on more than 20 credit hours per semester
  • Maintain a 3.2 yearly grade point average
  • Have not accepted any other Utah Tech scholarship in the form of tuition waiver or tuition reduction (private cash awards or scholarships are acceptable).
