05:01:03   Fee Waiver for TBR/UT System Employees

TBR Guideline P-130, Section IX, Public Higher Education Fee Waiver for State Employees, allows for the payment of one credit course, graduate or undergraduate, per term for Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) employees who attend a public Tennessee college or university. This payment covers tuition, maintenance fees, debt service fees, student activity fees, technology access fees, online course fees, Regents Online Degree Program fees, service charges and registration fees.

The term shall mean any period of time in which a student may receive a grade for the completion of a course. Employees are responsible for special course fees, books and supplies, applied music fees, lab fees, off-campus facility fees, parking fees, traffic fines and similar fees.

Employees are not eligible for fee waivers at more than one institution per term.

Courses under this program must be for credit, and employees must meet the regular academic rules and regulations of the institution offering the course.

Employees participating in the program must complete a Fee Waiver form, available in the office of Human Resources. Individuals utilizing the Fee Waiver form to enroll in courses at Northeast State may register no earlier than four (4) weeks prior to the first day of classes. The registration date for each term will be printed in the schedule of classes for the term. The employment status of an employee on the published first day of classes for each term determines eligibility for participation in this program. Any change in employment status after the first day of classes shall not affect eligibility for that term or the amount of assistance received.
