Full-time employees or members of the employee’s immediate family can apply for a waiver of tuition for courses taken at the College. When authorized and pre-approved, the College will waive the tuition; fees and other miscellaneous expenses such as books will not be waived. This tuition waiver will be considered for the following:
- Full-time employees and their spouses.
- Children of full-time employees.
- Retired full-time employees, their spouses and children.
- Spouses and children of full-time employees who become deceased while employed.
Enrollment of the above prospective students is subject to the same application criteria as students who are paying; the tuition-waived student will be processed in the same manner as a tuition-paying student would be processed.
If the employee is required to attend other college credit courses (other than faculty who are pursuing their bachelor's degree or master's level classes as a condition of employment), continuing education unit courses, seminars, or certification tests, expenses for those courses will be reimbursed. Employees must earn a passing grade of “C” or its equivalent or obtain a certification to receive any reimbursement. Expenses must be validated by receipts, and a copy of the final grade card or certification must be presented to show hours or certification received. Instructors who have been hired with the expectation of completing either the requisite Baccalaureate degree (technical faculty) or 18 credit hours of masters’ level courses (general education faculty) will complete these courses at their own expense.
