GRCC Tuition Waiver Benefit
Employees interested in waiving GRCC tuition for yourself, spouse, or unmarried children up to the age of 24 must complete the Tuition Waiver Form. The tuition waiver benefit applies to tuition and fees. Please refer to your employee contract or handbook for details on tuition waiver benefit.
A tuition waiver form must be completed for each dependent and for each semester that you are requesting the tuition waiver benefit. Tuition waiver form must be submitted no later than seven days prior to the posted tuition due date or you risk having classes dropped. Please forward completed tuition waiver forms and any Required Dependent Documentation to Benefits Manager Maria Belmares Herrera via email at email@example.com.
Adjuncts teaching 7.5 contact hours, or 6 if teaching English Comp, qualify for the tuition waiver. Please refer to the faculty contract for details on tuition waiver benefit eligibility. We are unable to confirm adjunct teaching schedules in the Peoplesoft system until after classes start each semester. Adjuncts who have been offered and accepted classes should attach a copy of signed FIF to the tuition waiver form. Please forward completed tuition waiver forms and required dependent documentation (if not already on file) to Benefits Manager Maria Belmares Herrera via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
