Full time employees at the University are eligible to participate in the Tuition Waiver Program on a space available basis. Employees on leave status are not eligible for a tuition waiver except when the leave is granted as part of an educational program or professional development leave; however, employees’ eligible family members will be permitted to apply for the tuition waiver during the period the employee is on an approved leave. The employee is responsible for any tax liability arising from the use of this Tuition Waiver as per the Internal Revenue Service Code § 127 – Educational Assistance Program.

Eligible employees and their qualifying family members, may enroll for up to a combined maximum of ten (10) credit hours of FIU instruction per term (Fall, Spring, or Summer) with eligible employees enrolling in no more than six (6) credit hours of the total ten (10) credit hours per term, without payment of the in-state portion of tuition, tuition differential, or the following per credit fees: financial aid fees, capital improvement trust fund fees, athletic fees, technology fees and activity and service fees.
