Other Benefits

Tuition Benefits

Regular full-time faculty, staff, and administrative personnel may register for up to a maximum of two classes per semester, and one class per term provided one class has to be outside the employee's work schedule. Approval must be obtained from the employee's supervisors. Employees taking classes more than 1 hour in a semester/term must receive approval from their director in addition to their line vice president.

Employees hired after May 1, 2010, must have completed six months of full-time employment before becoming eligible for tuition benefits. After personnel has completed one year of full-time employment, their spouse and dependent children may be eligible for tuition benefits. Spouses are eligible for a full-tuition benefit for an unlimited number of credit hours. Dependent children are eligible for a half-tuition benefit for undergraduate work only, regardless of marital status. Benefits for dependent children cease when they receive an undergraduate degree, accumulate 152 credit hours, or reach age 30, whichever occurs first.
