Minnesota State offers tuition waiver benefits to most employees, their spouses and dependents based on criteria provided in the various union contracts or salary plans. The waiver covers the cost of tuition and, in some cases, course fees. Please refer to your specific bargaining contract/plan for eligibility and benefit details. Also see "Additional Resources" below for more information.
Things to Remember
- Deadline: To qualify for the tuition waiver, you need to have submitted the waiver request no more than 10 days after the start of the class. No exceptions will be granted. If no class date is specified (e.g. Independent Study), the deadline is 10 days after the start of the respective semester/session.
- Please be aware of Student Financial Service's "Important Dates" to avoid having classes dropped for non-payment. (e.g. If classes are registered for but tuition waiver has not been filed for by Early Registration Guarantee Date, classes will get dropped.)
- Please check back in the Tuition Waiver System to see when/if the waiver is processed by Human Resources. You will not receive a confirmation or notice of denial. It is the responsibility of the employee to check.
- Make sure you or your dependent checks their billing information to make sure the tuition waiver gets processed in a timely manner.
