Graduate tuition rates depend on whether
you are a Washington State resident or not: non-residents pay tuition
at a much higher rate. To qualify as a resident, assuming you are
financially independent of your parents, you must have actually
resided in the state for the preceding 12 months. Such things as
voter registration, driver's license, vehicle registration, and
bank accounts in the state are important for demonstrating residency.

University Web pages:
If you are offered financial aid in
form of a teaching assistantship, research assistantship, or fellowship,
you will also be offered a waiver of tuition (except for approximately
$350 per quarter in fees).
International applicants will
be asked to show evidence that they have sufficient
resources to cover their cost of living plus tuition for the
first year, which in recent years has amounted to more than US
$40,000. If the applicant
is offered support
by the Mathematics Department, the usual Teaching Assistantship
salary and tuition waiver will cover most of this amount. The
applicant might need to provide a small additional amount from
other sources, however.
