Olivet University Room & Board Fee Waiver Policy

The purpose of this policy is to achieve several objectives:

1. Supporting diversity and inclusion: A large portion of Olivet University's students have had missionary experience or will be involved in missions directly or indirectly, and many of them come from all around the world, including non-developed countries. In order to promote diversity and inclusion by ensuring that individuals from different socioeconomic backgrounds have the opportunity to participate, the University's Business Office has decided to set up this fee waiver policy, which can help remove financial barriers for those who want to participate in missions.

2. Fulfilling social responsibility or enhancing public relations: Since the University receives donations from alumni all around the world, it feels a responsibility to give back to their support and to support the students coming from their countries. By extending this support to all students, Olivet University can enhance its public relations and reputation with the alumni.

3. Encouraging recruitment: A fee waiver policy can encourage more students to enroll in programs or services by reducing financial barriers and making them more accessible to a wider range of individuals all around the world.
