How does the State Employee Tuition Waiver program work?

Through the State Employee Tuition Waiver Program, state employees are eligible to take up to six in-state credit hours per term and the tuition is waived. 


All full-time permanent state employees as certified by the employee's supervisor and agency/department head, and by the Bureau of State Payrolls in the Department of Financial Services. State employees who are also receiving federal financial aid are eligible to use the tuition waiver. Note: State University System, City of Tallahassee and Leon County employees are not eligible for the program.  


The Program covers tuition up to six (6) in state credit hours per term. Textbooks, lab fees, the distance learning lab fee, and the student services fee are not covered by the tuition waiver. These fees are the responsibility of the student.

Available Courses

Web-assisted, web-based, developmental education and credit classes qualify for the program; however, postsecondary adult vocational clock hour courses (PSAV) and non-credit courses do not qualify.

How it Works

In order to qualify for the Program, students must register for classes on TSC Workday Student   There is a deadline to submit waiver forms and all forms submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed.  Consult the academic calendar for deadlines.  

The tuition waiver form must contain the signature of the supervisor and the agency head (or Human Resources Director).   To access the form, click on the state employee tuition waiver form found on the Admissions and Records forms page.
