Electronic form to streamline employee tuition waiver application process

An electronic application tool currently in development will simplify the process of applying under the Tuition Remission Benefit Program for faculty and staff, says Cheryl Paglione, associate director of pensions, benefits and HR systems in the Department of Human Resources.

She calls the eTuitionWaiver part of the department’s ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality and most effective levels of service delivery. While the electronic application will not be available until later in the school year, applicants will already see one benefit.

“Rather than applying every semester, applicants will now submit one application that will cover the entire academic school year, from September to August,” Paglione said. “Besides improving record keeping for us, it will represent a time savings for everyone.”

Elimination of the paper application also supports the University's commitment to environmental responsibility.  

For this year, once the 2011 paper forms are approved, the tuition waiver will be automatically renewed through to August 2012. Details are available on the Human Resources Web site.

As a reminder, tuition waiver applications are to be submitted prior to tuition fee payment due dates. Please submit any outstanding applications to Human Resources without delay.
