Tuition Waiver Process
Who is eligible?
All regular full-time employees, their spouses and dependent children, and all regular part-time employees are eligible for the OCCC Tuition Waiver Program.
What does the waiver cover?
Regular full-time employees may waive tuition for a maximum of six (6) credit hours during fall semesters, a maximum of 6 credit hours during spring semesters and a maximum of three (3) credit hours during summer semesters during a fiscal year.
Regular part-time employees may waive tuition for a maximum of three (3) credit hours during fall semesters, a maximum of three (3) credit hours during spring semesters and a maximum of three (3) credit hours during summer semesters during a fiscal year.
A regular full-time employee’s spouse and dependent children have the same tuition waiver benefit as the full-time employee.
How do you participate in the Tuition Waiver Program?
Tuition waivers are not automatically applied and must be requested by the employee prior to the beginning of every semester.
To participate in the TuitionWaiver Program you will need to complete a TuitionWaiver Request before each semester. The Tuition Reimbursement Request form can be located at the Employee Portal under “HR Forms” and “Employee Benefits”.
Once the waiver has been approved, you will be notified by e-mail. A copy of this approval will be submitted to the Bursar’s office for the waiver to be placed on the student’s account. It is the employee’s responsibility to contact the Bursar’s office prior to the semester starting to ensure the waiver has been applied.
Per OCCC’s policy, any student who withdraws from the class prior to completion or fails to earn a grade of C or the equivalent will be required to reimburse the College for the tuition waived for the semester. Grades must be submitted to Director of Benefits within 5 days of availability. Failure to submit grades will result in waiver removal and charges applied to account.
