Eligible categories: Faculty, Administrative, Research, Professional, Regular, and Hourly Staff.

Employees

The University provides for the waiver of tuition fees to eligible full-time employees on regular appointment for courses taken at the University.

Employees are eligible for tuition remission after they have completed six months of full-time regular employment.

The following table illustrates how employee eligibility is determined:

Length of service Maximum number of credits allowed
Six months to One year 4
1-2 years 7
2 yrs. or more 11

Employees must satisfy normal academic enrollment requirements including prerequisites and registration deadlines and are responsible for paying registration, laboratory, and other related fees.

To apply for tuition remission, employees must complete a Tuition Remission form (I believe I sent you this already) and submit the form to the Human Resources Manager for certification of eligibility.

Dependents

The University provides for the waiver of tuition fees to the spouses and dependent children of full-time employees for University courses.

Spouses and children of eligible employees in the Administrative, Executive, Research and Teaching Faculty are eligible for this benefit at the start of the semester following employment.

Spouses and children of eligible employees in the Professional, Regular, and Hourly staff categories are eligible for tuition remission at the start of the semester after the eligible employee has completed five consecutive years of full-time regular employment.

Spouses and children are eligible for tuition remission for undergraduate courses only and are responsible for payment of registration, laboratory and other related fees.

For verification of eligibility for a spouse, an employee must submit a marriage certificate with the initial registration form. For verification of eligibility for a child, an employee must submit a birth or adoption certificate with the initial registration form and must submit a federal income tax form listing the child as a dependent each applicable year at the beginning of the fall semester.

Retirees

The University provides for tuition remission for course work for qualified spouses and dependent children of long-term employees who are retired or deceased. The extent of this benefit depends on the employee's accrued years of service at the time of separation from service.

"Spouse" is defined as the legally recognized husband or wife of an eligible employee. "Dependent children" are defined as the natural or legally adopted children under the age of 25 of an eligible employee whom the employee claims as dependents for income tax purposes. Step-children who have not been legally adopted do not qualify.

Eligibility for this benefit begins at the start of the next semester following the employee's retirement or death. For employees with 10 to 14 years of service, the benefit is for one academic year; for those with 15 to 19 years of service, 2 academic years; for those with 20 to 24 years of service, 3 academic years; and for those with 25 or more years of service, 4 academic years.

Spouses and children are eligible for tuition remission for undergraduate courses only and are responsible for payment of registration, laboratory and other related fees.

For verification of eligibility for a spouse, an employee must submit a marriage certificate with the initial registration form. For verification of eligibility for a child, an employee must submit a birth or adoption certificate with the initial registration form and must submit a federal income tax form listing the child as a dependent each applicable year at the beginning of the fall semester.
