State of Florida Employee

 

Through TCC's 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.  We are proud to offer state employees this opportunity to enhance their skills and job competencies for a better future.

****State Employee Tuition Waiver Process Changed****

State Employee students are now allowed to register during the same periods as all other students (during the appropriate registration window) instead of being restricted to a 3-day registration period.  

We are no longer accepting state employee tuition waiver forms for Fall 2021. The deadline to submit a waiver for Fall 2021 was August 24, 2021. We're now accepting state waivers for Spring 2022.

 

Spring 2022 Registration Windows:

Special Populations: October 27, 2021

30+ credit hours: November 1, 2021

0+ credit hours (all students): November 8, 2021

Deadline to submit waivers for all sessions (including express and mini):

Spring 2022: January 4, 2022

 

Eligibility

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 (FSU and FAMU), City of Tallahassee, and Leon County employees are not eligible for the program.  

Costs

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, Career and Technical clock hour courses and non-credit courses/workshops do not qualify.

How it Works

In order to qualify for the program, students must register for classes on *Workday during registration.

The TCC tuition waiver form must contain the signature of the supervisor and the agency head (or Human Resources Director). The supervisor's signatures should be dated during the registration period (not before).  Waivers must be submitted prior to the fee payment due date listed on the student's course schedule in order to avoid being dropped for non-payment.

**The deadline to submit a waiver for all sessions (including express and mini sessions) is by the last day to register for the MAIN session. Dates are posted on the Academic Calendar. 

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.

Non-degree seeking students must submit the Non-Degree Seeking form each semester for which the student is registering.

Register for Classes

Check the Academic Calendar for registration dates and deadlines. Students must register for classes in Workday during the registration period.

Make sure the TCC state employee tuition waiver form (located in the next step) is submitted by the payment deadline on your schedule in order to avoid being dropped from class(es).

Submit a State Employee Tuition Waiver Form

State employees must submit the State Employee Tuition Waiver form with both of the required signatures.  The supervisor's signatures cannot be dated before the opening of the registration windows.
 
The Student Identification Number must be included on the waiver form in order to process it in a timely manner.

Note:  "Intent to Apply" and "Participation Forms" are agency forms only. State Employees must complete the appropriate form.

For your convenience, documents should be scanned and e-mailed to the Admissions and Records Office at state-ee-waiver@tcc.fl.edu.

Pay Remaining Fees​

Check your TCC Workday account to see your fee payment deadline. Before the fee payment deadline, be sure to pay all lab fees, the distance learning lab fee, the 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.
