Employees may take up to eight (8) credit hours of university course credits per semester, to a maximum of 16 credit hours per academic year without paying tuition.
The academic year begins each fall and ends with the following year's summer semester.
Course fees other than tuition (such as lab, supply or technology fees, student activity or health center fees, and books, etc.) are not covered by the tuition waiver and are the student’s responsibility.
Employees may take up to three credit hours during working hours without being required to make up the time if the course will enhance job-related skills or knowledge. Prior approval must be granted by the employee's supervisor and the appropriate forms completed.
Employees may have course charges waived for up to four (4) non-credit courses from a UA-approved list per semester, with prior approval from your supervisor. These non-credit courses are designed to enhance job-related skills and work performance.
If the courses taken are considered graduate level courses, the value of these classes will be added to the employee’s gross income and taxed as if it were regular earnings. If the employee is taking graduate-level courses that are a requirement of an employee's position, these courses may not be subject to taxation.
