To qualify for the discount, all siblings must be matriculated and enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program, for each period (semester) of eligibility. The sibling discount will be applied as follows:

    • 10% tuition discount per student for the 1st and 2nd siblings, enrolled concurrently
    • 20% tuition discount for the 3rd and additional siblings, enrolled concurrently

    The Sibling Discount does not apply to, and, if applicable, will be removed in the following situations:

    The Sibling Discount applies only to tuition, NOT to housing (room and board) or any other fees that are assessed to student accounts.
