Employee Tuition Waivers
Employee tuition waivers are available to employees of UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC Healthcare, and other UNC System campuses under certain conditions in accordance with UNC-Chapel Hill’s tuition waiver policies.
Employees of other UNC System campuses should seek assistance from their campus Human Resources office on specific procedures and forms for using this benefit.
Noncredit courses offered through the Friday Center for Continuing Education are not covered by Tuition Waiver.
Employees seeking a waiver should confirm whether the tuition waiver applies to the particular program or school offering the course(s) of interest by contacting that program office directly. Not all coursework is eligible for the tuition waiver.
This feature may not be available to UNC-Chapel Hill employees enrolled elsewhere and is not available to other state employees enrolled at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Tuition waiver will also waive all student fees for the academic term, even if additional courses not covered under the tuition waiver program are taken the same term. Tuition Waiver does not apply to other course-related expenses such astravel, laboratory, registration, or material fees.
An employee may enroll in more than one University course during a single academic term. The Cashier’s Office of the institution at which the employee is enrolled will apply the tuition waiver per the guidelines established by that office. Any tuition costs for the academic term that are not covered under the Tuition Waiver Program remain the responsibility of the employee.
The Request for Waiver of Student Fees form must be submitted to the Cashiers Office for approval no later than the last day to drop a class for tuition credit (the term census date) for the term for which the waiver is being applied. UNC employees who have submitted a Tuition Waiver Application for Faculty/Staff form through the Office of Human Resources – Benefits office do not need to submit the Request for Waiver of Student Fees form to the Cashiers Office for the same term.Student Fee Waiver Policy
