Definitions and Background

ASE Resident Operating Fee Policy

To determine eligibility for resident operating fee, see the Graduate School General Conditions of Appointment found at:

Tuition-based students, who are hired as ASEs (TAs/RAs/SAs) in the UW School of Nursing, receive a resident operating and tech fee waiver, and a waiver of the non-resident differential, if any, in the amount of the current tuition. This is the standard university practice.

Fee-based students who are hired as ASEs (TAs/RAs/SAs) in the UW School of Nursing receive course payments equal to Tier 1 resident operating and tech fee. This practice is consistent with the aforementioned OPB Brief.
