Faculty and Staff Tuition Waiver Program
The 1997 First Extraordinary Session of the General Assembly resulted in the creation of a faculty and staff tuition waiver program [KRS 164.020(32)] with the express purpose of promoting employee and faculty development.
According to this interim policy, any regular full-time employee of a Kentucky post-secondary public institution may, with prior administrative approval of the course offering institution, take a maximum of six (6) credit hours per term at any Kentucky public post-secondary institution. The institution shall waive the tuition up to a maximum of six (6) credit hours per term. The program applies to the waiver of tuition and does not include mandatory student fees, course and other fees, text books and other charges assessed by a course-offering institution. Tuition waivers under the program may generate taxable income under provisions of the federal tax code for graduate, professional, and doctoral level programs.
An employee, to be eligible for participation in the Faculty and Staff Tuition Waiver Program, must be classified by the employing institution as a regular full-time employee. Certification of employment shall be provided by the employing institution for each academic term in which the employee seeks to participate in the program. If employment is terminated prior to the first day of classes, an approved tuition waiver will be cancelled.
The program does not provide for credit hours over and above the six credit hours per semester. Employees who use their credits at the University of Louisville will not be eligible for any additional tuition waiver credits in excess of six hours either at UofL or another post-secondary institution.
