Faculty and Staff Tuition Waiver Program
If you were employed with UK and had applied to or enrolled in another Kentucky public institution by April 26, 2018, you remain eligible for a tuition waiver at that institution.
Employees must follow admission and registration procedures and deadlines established by the university they are attending. Be aware of fee and payment deadlines and fee assessment when courses are changed. A tuition waiver form must be turned into the Benefits office, 112 Scovell Hall, 0064, by the deadline established. Please check online or with the Benefits office for the most current forms available each semester. Only one course may be taken during work hours with approval by your supervisor and department head.
For those eligible, the program is available for classes taken for credit at any of the KCTCS institutions (i.e. Community and Technical Colleges), Eastern Kentucky University, Kentucky State University, Morehead State University, Northern Kentucky University, Western Kentucky University, the University of Louisville or Murray State University. The tuition waiver is not available for audited, non-credit, continuing education or community education courses.
Family Education Program (FEP)
Ease tuition costs by utilizing the tuition and mandatory fee discount now available to eligible family members of regular full-time employees. The discount is applied toward undergraduate coursework and is determined by the employee’s years of service. Read more »
