Last year, the university announced new restrictions on one of its most popular fringe benefits: tuition remission. Beginning with fall term 2001, those changes will begin to take effect.
The limitations, approved by the UC Board of Trustees in 2000, apply to you, your spouse and your eligible dependents if you're in one of the following employee groups: unrepresented, Post Doctoral Fellow and Research Fellow, or annually appointed adjunct faculty.
In short, tuition must be paid for any course that you, your spouse or dependent, have failed or withdrawn from late. For employees covered by collective bargaining agreements, repayment will be required as outlined in the contracts.
Affected employees and their dependents must repay 100 percent of their tuition remission benefit for any course in which they:
- withdraw after the first three weeks of class.
- receive a grade of F.
- receive an Incomplete (I) that later changes to an F.
According to Betty Young, University Benefits director, tuition will have to be repaid before the student can register for any more courses.
Students who get passing grades or withdraw before the three-week deadline will continue to enjoy the same tuition benefits as before.
