Fill Out Employee Tuition Waiver Request Form

The following guidelines apply to employee waivers:

  • Refer to the information and guidelines for all tuition waivers.
  • Only the employee may submit the request for a tuition waiver. No one may submit on behalf of the employee.
  • An employee may receive no more than 6 total hours of waivers as a non-degree graduate student.
  • An employee who has been admitted to a degree or certificate program and who is in good standing in that program may request up to 6 hours of waivers per term.
  • Some programs and courses restrict the use of waivers. Students are responsible for determining if waivers can be used for particular programs or courses (see Restrictions on Use of Waivers).
  • Employee waivers may be applied to a maximum of one master’s degree, one doctoral degree and one certificate.
  • Although all full-time regular employees are eligible for waivers, employees must follow University guidelines to be eligible to use employee leave, work release, and flexible work arrangements for class attendance.
  • Gift aid, including the value of tuition waivers, is potentially taxable income to employees. Individuals may contact Tax Services for information concerning tax implications of tuition waivers.
  • Employee waivers are only valid for terms during which the employee has an active assignment. Employee waivers may not be submitted after a qualifying appointment has ended.
