Tuition Waiver

The purpose of the Tuition Waiver Program is to provide an opportunity for eligible employees to have tuition and fees waived for a course taken at any of the 16 campuses of the University of North Carolina. In order to be eligible for participation in the Tuition Waiver Program, an employee must be a permanent employee working thirty (30) or more hours per week for nine (9) or more months per calendar year.

Tuition and fee charges will be waived for a maximum of three (3) courses per academic year with no limitation as to the number of courses that can be taken each term. Courses may be taken in any term: Fall, Spring, or Summer, so long as the limit of three (3) courses per academic year is not exceeded. The Tuition Waiver Program does not cover non-credit courses, such as those offered through CallDCL. The employee is responsible for any and all additional tuition and fees charged to their student account during the term. Please visit the Cashier’s Office webpage to apply.
