Program Details

The WRGP is an exchange program for graduate students. It allows students to pay 150% of resident tuition for their specific graduate program. Students are automatically considered for enrollment for the WRGP Waiver upon full acceptance into a qualified UT graduate program.

The only deadline is the graduate program acceptance deadline.

Participating UT Graduate Programs:

  • Masters of Accountancy (MAcc)
  • Masters of Athletic Training
  • Masters of Technical Writing and Digital Rhetoric


Participants on the WRGP Waiver must understand the following:

  • This waiver will keep you at 150% of resident tuition for your specific graduate program.
  • To maintain eligibility you must be a student in good status with your graduate program and making progress towards degree.
  • There are no credit or GPA requirements for each semester to keep eligibility.
  • If you are enrolled in less than 12 credits for any given semester, this waiver will prorate to the number of credits in which you are enrolled. This happens on a daily basis through the first 3 weeks of a semester, if you change your enrollment.
