CUNY EMPLOYEE TUITION WAIVER
Congratulations on your decision to advance your personal and professional development by attending classes at one of our CUNY Colleges.
Tuition may be waived for undergraduate and graduate courses at any CUNY college on a space available, no cost basis depending upon the term the employee is registered for, their category/title, the number of credits attempted and their amount of service time. (Please see chart below.) Please note: Tuition Waivers do not cover Winter Session.
Part time titles, such as College Assistants, IT Hourly, NTA's, etc. are not eligible for Tuition Waiver (except for TEACHING Adjuncts with at least 10 consecutive semesters, not including summer). Part time titles should contact their union for information on any available tuition reimbursement. DC37 members such as CA's and IT's, click here to find out more information.
Staff members must visit the Human Resources department to get their tuition waiver approved. This must be done for EACH term.
Waivers are applied to tuition charges based upon how the class is being credited towards the employee's degree. If a staff member has a waiver for 6 graduate credits and 3 undergraduate credits and the undergraduate credits are being used towards a graduate degree, the employee cannot use the undergraduate waiver and must pay for the class.
Waivers MUST be received PRIOR to your payment due date to avoid the cancellation of your classes. If you provide the Bursar's Office with your waiver LATE, you will be responsible for paying for your class(es).
Waivers will NOT pay for:
- class drop charges
- late payment fees
- late registration fees
Once your tuition waiver form has been approved:
If you indicated that you will be attending Queens College, then the original copy of the tuition waiver will be sent to the Bursar's Office for further processing. A copy will be sent to you for your records.
If you are attending a school other than Queens College, we will contact you once it has been approved so you can pick up your tuition waiver. You must take the original copy to the Bursar's Office of the school you will be attending. Keep a copy for your records.
