Tuition Waiver - EMPLOYEE & DEPENDENT/SPOUSE WAIVER REQUEST FORMS
TUITION WAIVERS FOR EMPLOYEES ENROLLED IN UNIVERSITY COURSES
Full-time, regular employees may audit or enroll in classes, provided it can be done without interfering with their work assignments. By policy of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, regular staff members at constituent institutions in the Oklahoma System of Higher Education may enroll in courses at the institution where employed and be charged tuition at the rate of one-half (50%) of the general enrollment amount charged to regular students. The value of the reduced tuition may be taxable as income. This does not apply to class or non-tuition fees. Validation by the appropriate supervisor regarding the relevance/benefit of the course work will be required to authorize reduced tuition.
Employees may enroll in classes and the reduced tuition will apply to a maximum of six hours per term. All working hours missed must be made up by the employee and shown on the timesheet (non-exempt employees). Prior to enrollment, the employee's supervisor must present a completed enrollment schedule, and a request for the appropriate tuition reduction, to the appropriate Vice President for approval. If by agreement between the Vice President and the supervisor, the employee is allowed to enroll in any class(es) in excess of those outlined above, all such hours missed will result in an appropriate payroll deduction and cannot be made up.
Please submit the request form to the bursar office in the administration building or you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions please email email@example.com or call 918-444-2160.
TUITION WAIVERS FOR DEPENDENT CHILDREN AND SPOUSES OF UNIVERSITY EMPLOYEES
Northeastern has an undergraduate tuition waiver program for qualified residents of Oklahoma who are dependent children (24 years of age or younger on the first day of the semester) or spouses of full-time university employees. The applicant must be regularly admitted as a degree-seeking student in a program of study leading to a first undergraduate degree. The tuition waiver is for general enrollment tuition during the fall, spring and summer semesters and does not include any fees. The maximum award will be $600 for summer and $1200 per semester for fall and spring terms. The awards are based on $100 per hour enrolled up to $1200. Full-time students are funded first and part-time students will only be considered if money is available after all qualifying full-time students have been awarded. Part-time students must submit a written statement explaining reasons for part-time status and a plan for completing a bachelor’s degree. Keep in mind that the total amount of all combined tuition waivers cannot exceed the student's total tuition costs. The priority deadlines for the Tuition Waiver Program for Children and Spouses of University Employees will be:
- June 1st - Summer Semester
- August 1st - Fall Semester
- December 1st - Spring Semester
A request form must be completed once an academic year and the student must meet the following criteria to continue receiving the tuition waiver:
- Enroll in and complete at least 24 credit hours each academic year, unless a student has been granted a part-time exception (at least 12 per semester).
- Maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA for each academic year.
The application is updated yearly and sent via email to all faculty and staff towards the end of the spring semester.
