Appendix A
EDUCATION TUITION REMISSION FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDY
Full-time continuing employees and their dependents are eligible to receive tuition benefits at the
College.
Part-Time Undergraduate Study
Employees and their spouses are eligible from the date of employment for 100% tuition
remission for part-time undergraduate study. Tuition remission will be granted for only one unit
of study at a time and an individual may take no more than three (3) full units per fiscal year with
tuition remission.
Applications for tuition benefits for employees and their spouses must be endorsed by the
department head and submitted to the Office of Student Financial Aid for eligibility approval. An
application must be filed each term a course is taken. Tuition remission for the employee and
spouse includes tuition, student activity fee and post office rental
Full-Time Undergraduate Study
The employee's children, adopted children, or legal wards under the age of 25 and the employee's
spouse are entitled to full tuition remission after the employee has completed two (2) consecutive
years of full-time continuing employment (i.e. work hours totaling at least 35 hours per week for
staff employees). Should an eligible employee die, retire, or become disabled while in the service
of the College, his or her dependents will be eligible to receive the same benefits as if the
employee had lived or remained in full-time employment.
The dependent must be enrolled as a candidate for a first baccalaureate degree and must meet all
the standard requirements for admission and maintain satisfactory academic progress. Eligibility
will continue for no more than six (6) calendar years from the date of first enrollment.
Participating students may apply for need based Student Financial Aid in addition to tuition
remission (Pell Grant, Alabama State Grant, Work-study, etc.). Under no circumstances will the
total financial package exceed the total need of the student.
Applications to establish the eligibility of employees and dependents are available in the Office
of Student Financial Aid and must be submitted each year for eligibility determination. Tuition
remission for dependents covers tuition only; the student must pay all fees. Rev. 4/03
