Excerpt from: University of Delaware Policies and Procedures Manual, Section: Personnel
The University offers a Tuition Remission Program for eligible full-time and part-time employees. This program allows up to two tuition remission requests per semester for each employee. The student must be either a spouse in a legally recognized marriage or civil union under DE law to the employee or dependent child of the employee or spouse/civil union spouse. The dependent child or spouse/civil union spouse must be a full- time matriculated undergraduate student. For this purpose matriculated means official acceptance by the University Admissions Office and full- time student status may be from twelve to seventeen credit hours (see #5 below).
Part-time employees with work schedules of less than 75% time (and 50% or more) receive one-half of the full-time benefit, that is, two requests per semester at half of the registered credit hours.
This policy is subject to the following conditions:
Full-time status is defined as a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester.
The employee must complete the "Request for Tuition Remission Program" web form and submit it to the Benefits Services Office before the end of the late registration and free drop/add period for the semester.
All registration materials must be returned to the appropriate University offices (for example, Admissions, Registrar, Cashier) before this benefit takes effect.
If the student does not maintain full-time status throughout the semester, the student will lose eligibility for tuition remission for that semester and will be billed for the number of credit hours taken.
