11. Who can use tuition waivers?

The Tuition waiver benefit was updated for 2013 to include a probationary period for newly hired employees, additional credit hours available for employees and minimum cumulative GPA standards.  Regular part-time and full-time employees and their families may take advantage of the university’s tuition waiver program to work toward a degree or improve their job skills.  Employees hired on or after January 1, 2013 must satisfy the six-month new employee probationary period to be eligible for the tuition waiver benefits for themselves and their dependents.

Continued Eligibility: Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 for undergraduate and 3.0 for graduate students is required to continue receiving tuition waiver benefits.

 

Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver

Tuition Waivers are available for senior citizens who are Alaska residents and are otherwise age eligible to receive full social security retirement benefits.  Registration on a space available basis is only allowed on or after the first day of instruction.  Senior citizens who register before this day are not eligible for the tuition waiver.  Also, senior citizens who paid normal tuition to register early will not be allowed to drop and later re-register the class in order to take advantage of the waiver.  Tuition waivers must be turned in before payment.  No reimbursements will be made.  Waivers cover tuition ONLY.  Fees not covered by the waiver (i.e. student activity fees, course lab fees, health center fees, technology fees, etc.) are the student’s responsibility and must be paid by the deadline.

Please submit tuition waivers to the Student Accounts office after registration is complete.
