Michigan Indian Tuition Waiver

The Michigan Indian Tuition Waiver (MITW) is a program enacted by Public Act 174 of 1976, which waives the tuition costs for eligible Native Americans in public community colleges or universities within Michigan. The student must be a member of a federally recognized tribe, posses 1/4 BQ, and be a resident of Michigan. The Michigan Department of Civil Rights currently administers the MITW.
