Employee Tuition Waiver

The university offers a waiver of tuition (undergraduate and graduate level) to all eligible employees for academic credited courses offered at the university each semester. This program is for both degree and non-degree seeking students. Books, application fees, special course or departmental fees, and readmission fees are not covered. Refer to the appropriate policy for eligibility, enrollment information, and course restrictions.

The waiver policy does not apply to individual courses offered through School of Professional & Continuing Education or other self-supporting programs, except as provided by university policy. Waivers can be used for employees who are fully accepted into the Adult Degree Program. Waivers can also be used for employees who are fully accepted into a Certificate Program or a Degree Program if space is available and with approval from School of Professional & Continuing Education.
