​State of Florida Employees

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. TCC is proud to offer state employees this opportunity to enhance their skills and job competencies for a better future.

Steps to Apply


 Step 1


​Apply for Admission

The links below will take you to the appropriate application steps.

New Student Application

New students who have never attended TCC must follow the TCC 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 Application

Returning students who have not enrolled at TCC in the last twelve months must submit a new application.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

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

 Step 2


​Register for Classes 

Students must register for classes on TCC Passport during the established state employee registration period. The program works on a space available basis.

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.

 Step 3


​Submit a TCC State Tuition Waver Form

State employees must submit the State Employee Tuition Waiver.pdf with all of the required signatures immediately after a successful registration for a eligible course(s). The supervisor signatures cannot be dated more than two weeks before the opening of the state employee registration window. The Student Identification Number must be included on the waiver form in order to process it in a timely manner. In addition, state departments that handle their own payroll must submit a payroll authorization letter verifying the student's employment status, if applicable. 
"Intent to Apply" and "Participation Forms" are agency forms only.  State Employees MUST complete the appropriate TCC State Tuition Waiver Form.


Remember that the waiver form must be submitted each session for which the student is registering and signatures must be dated no more than two weeks prior to the state employee registration dates for each session. For your convenience, documents should be scanned and e-mailed to the Admission and Enrollment Services office at

 Step 4


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 TCC State Tuition Waiver.

Who is eligible?

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 TCC State Employee Tuition Waiver. Note: State University System, City of Tallahassee and Leon County employees are not eligible for the TCC State Employee Tuition Waiver Program.  

What costs are covered?

The TCC State Employee Tuition Waiver program covers tuition up to six (6) in state credit hours per term. Please remember that textbooks, lab fees, the distance learning lab fee, and the student services fee are not covered by the TCC State Tuition Waiver. These fees are the responsibility of the student.

What courses are covered?

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

How does it work?

In order to qualify for the TCC State Employee Tuition 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.
