• Tuition Waiver Program

    Hamline University actively supports opportunities for the growth and development of the whole person. As a community, we strive every day to deliver lifelong learning as a cornerstone of our mission as a university. Hamline currently participates in five programs that provide tuition exchange or waivers with other cooperating institutions to fund or subsidize a portion of personal expenses associated with the cost of higher education. Hamline's participation in these programs is subject to change, as are the eligibility requirements of each program. The following sections will guide you through the various programs currently available.
