4.9 Tuition Waiver for College Volunteers
A college volunteer (in a position authorized by the appropriate Dean) may be eligible for tuition waiver. To be eligible, the college volunteer must have completed one hundred (100) hours of service (July 1 to June 30). In the subsequent year, the eligible volunteer may enroll in credit courses up to three credits per semester and/or one noncredit course on a space available basis (trips are excluded). Spouses and dependent children are not eligible for this benefit.
College volunteers may elect to pay full tuition to secure a seat but, in doing so, forfeit their tuition waiver for the semester. Students who choose this option should report to a scheduled registration.
To qualify for this nontransferable waiver, volunteers must register during the period designated by the college in its semester registration publications. Proof of college volunteer service will be required. Tuition is waived but all other applicable fees must be paid at registration. Tuition waiver does not include fees, other than capital fee, or charges for textbooks.
Volunteers are eligible for 100% waiver of tuition and capital fees. All other applicable fees are to be paid at the time of registration. A letter of eligibility, signed by the appropriate dean, will be sent to the volunteer. Prior to registration for credit classes, an eligible volunteer should complete a tuition waiver form, which is available in the Human Resources office, and submit it to his/her supervisor for approval. The supervisor will sign the form and forward it to the appropriate dean who will sign approval and forward the form to Human Resources for processing. Volunteers are permitted to register for classes during the period designated for Senior Citizen Registration only, as listed in the college catalog. Registration in non-credit courses must be accompanied by a copy of the letter of eligibility. Registration for volunteers is on a space available basis. Spouses and dependent children are not eligible for this benefit.
