Tuition waivers are applied to the semester that follows the semester of instruction. Adjuncts can take graduate courses upon prior approval from the SVPAA. There are, however, some restrictions and tax implications for some programs. This information can be found on the Tuition Waiver Benefit form.


Tuition waivers are transferable to the spouse of the adjunct faculty member, or any dependent child who is 25 years old or less, who meets the IRS definition of a dependent AND who resides in the parents’ home.

Time Limitation

一道本不卡免费高清Waivers must be utilized within three (3) calendar years of the semester or term in which teaching credits are earned.
