Regents' Policy Manual - Section 6.11: Dependent Educational Benefits

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996
Amended: 08-10-2023


This policy applies to all faculty and staff employees of the University.


The University wishes to improve employer-paid benefits for faculty and staff to enhance recruitment and retention. As one means of accomplishing this goal, the Regents authorize the creation of an educational benefits program in which the spouse, domestic partner, and/or dependent children of employees may receive a waiver of tuition for up to eight semesters.


The President shall adopt administrative policies and procedures to implement this policy which will address eligibility requirements, the number of tuition waivers that will be granted, the process for granting the waivers, and other features of the program.
