Academic Year 2001-2002 brings some significant changes to the tuition and residency systems. These changes, in turn, have affected the structure and values in the 2001-2002 Guide Memo 24.2S (Tuition Allowance Tables). Summarized below are the basic changes (other than normal value increases) to these tables:
- Since the tuition charge for 1, 2, and 3 units is now the same, the 10%, 15%, 85% and 90% Research Assistantship appointments all provide the same amount of tuition allowance. Therefore, a student holding such an appointment has a choice of how many units he/she will take, with the maximum allowable being 3.
- Since the tuition charge for 8, 9, and 10* units is now the same, the 40%, 50%, and 60% Research Assistantship appointments all provide the same amount of tuition allowance. Therefore, a student holding such an appointment has a choice of how many units he/she will take, with the maximum allowable being 10. Note that a stand-alone or combination 40% appointment is only allowable during the Summer Quarter.
- Earned residency values have been removed from the Tuition Allowance Tables. Since the new residency system is strictly based upon units completed, the old "units earned" residency column has been removed to reflect the new and future system.
- Students matriculating prior to Fall Quarter 2001 will have a one-time choice of which residency system they want to proceed with. In order to aid students deciding which system will be most beneficial for them, Section 4, including Unit/Residency Conversion Tables and Sample Calculations, has been added. These calculations and tables should provide the information and processes necessary to calculate a student's residency in both the old and new system. [Tables and calculations are pdf files.]
The Law School begins charging full tuition at 10 rather than 11 units like the other schools. Therefore, 40%, 50% and 60% appointments in the School of Law allow a maximum of 9 units.
