Can qualified tuition reduction (QTR) be applied to the New Start program?
Yes, individuals wishing to use their qualified tuition reduction (QTR) to help pay for the cost of New Start may do so! Per university financial aid policies, QTR will be used instead of and not in addition to the New Start Tuition Scholarship for Arizona residents. Arizona residents with completed FAFSAs receive a scholarship that covers 68% of tuition, while QTR for dependents is a 75% reduction in tuition. This means dependents using QTR will pay approximately $125 - $150 less than those students using the New Start Tuition Scholarship.
If a student using QTR still has financial need they can apply for the New Start Friends and Alumni Scholarship to cover up to the remaining direct cost of the program.
