Proposed Tax on Graduate Student Tuition

Created: December 8, 2017

Dear TGS students,  

During the past 3 months, I have heard from many of you about your science, your future and your Northwestern direction. I look forward to working more with you to enable your work!

I have also heard from many of you about the tax reform bill. Please know that our Government Relations office and The Graduate School are staying in close contact! The exclusion from taxation for graduate student waivers remains in the Senate version of the tax reform bill, and it is our understanding that the House Ways and Means Chairman is committed to keeping it out of the final version. This is good news. We will remain watchful over your interests and I will be in touch again as the situation becomes more clear.
On behalf of the entire faculty and staff of The Graduate School, I wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
