Human Resources - Tuition Waiver Program

To encourage professional growth, members of Management and Confidential Professional Personnel, faculty participating in the American Association of University Professors union (AAUP), and administrators participating in the State University Organization of Administrative Faculty union (SUOAF-AFSCME), may qualify to participate in the Tuition Waiver Program.

 

The Tuition Waiver Program allows employees to waive the tuition and other fees associated with course enrollment.  A schedule of Tuition Exemptions is noted below. A tuition waiver form is available through the Human Resources Department. 

 

Management & Confidential Professional Personnel 

 

Course Privileges:  Subject to the approval of the university offering the instruction, a non-temporary employee who regularly works more then twenty (20) hours per week covered under these Policies, the employee’s spouse and unmarried dependents under the age of 25 of such an employee may take courses at any of the four universities on a space available basis without payment of tuition, State University Fee and University General Fee for full-time students, and Extension Fee and Registration Fee for part-time students;  provided that participation in courses does not interfere with the employee’s professional obligations.  This benefit shall also be available to the above-mentioned spouse and dependents surviving a deceased employee (death having occurred on or after July 1, 1990, during the employee’s active service) who had accumulated ten (10) years of service in the CSU system.

 

Space available means that there is space in the class without the displacement of a regular student or a fee-paying student and that admission of the employee, the spouse, or the employee’s dependent will not create a workload entitling the instructor to additional pay or to a reduction in the number of hours the instructor is required to teach.

 

With the exception of the death benefit described above, emeritus employees shall be eligible for course privileges on the same basis as full-time, non-temporary employees.
