Through TCC's State Employee Tuition Waiver Program, state employees are eligible to take up to six in-state credit hours per term, on a space-available basis during the specified registration window. We are proud to offer state employees this opportunity to enhance their skills and job competencies for a better future.
How it Works
In order to qualify for the Program, students must register for classes on TCC Passport during the established state employee registration period given that the program works on a space available basis. Tuition/fees for registration made prior to this date will not be waived. Therefore, students who register for classes before this period or who are "holding seats" will be responsible for the full cost of instruction for those courses.
The tuition waiver form must contain the signature of the supervisor and the agency head (or Human Resources Director). The supervisor signatures cannot be dated more than two weeks prior to the registration dates for state employees. The forms must be turned in immediately after the state employee has successfully registered for an eligible course(s) to avoid being dropped for non-payment.
Steps to TCC
Apply for Admission
New students who have never attended TCC must follow the admission process and meet all of the established admission deadlines. In addition, if you are a first time student at TCC, you will need to attend Orientation.
Returning students who have not enrolled at TCC in the last twelve months must submit a new application.
Register for Classes
Please make sure the state tuition waiver form (see Step 3) is submitted by the payment deadline on the fee slip or immediately after a successful course registration in order to avoid being dropped from class(es).
Because the College is closed on the weekends and fees are due at the time of registration, State Employees are asked to register for courses during regular business hours. Note, do not register before 8 a.m. on the first registration day for state employees.
Submit a State Tuition Waiver Form
Note: "Intent to Apply" and "Participation Forms" are agency forms only. State Employees must complete the appropriate TCC State Employee Tuition Waiver form.
Pay Remaining Fees
Check your TCC Passport account on the day of registration and pay all lab fees, the distance learning lab fee, third attempt full cost of instruction fees or the student services fee that you may still owe. These fees are not covered by the tuition waiver.
