MCCCD Tuition Waiver

MCCCD Tuition Waivers and Handbook

MCCCD Tuition Waivers: If all or part of your tuition and fees are being paid by an outside organization or agency (ex. your employer, military, government agency), EMCC must have

  • Employee prints tuition waiver form
  • Employee completes all sections of the tuition waiver form
  • Employee determines if signatures are required for accountability using A, B, C or D options below 
    • Employee routes tuition waiver for signatures (if applicable) and signs

 the form of authorization (letter, card, voucher, purchase order, etc.) on file prior to your tuition and fee due date.  The form of authorization must be for the current term and must explain if all or part of the fees will be paid by that source. If you are eligible for a Pell Grant, please note your authorization may be applied after all Pell Grant Funds have been exhausted. If at any time the student becomes ineligible for funding through the agency, the student is responsible for any outstanding debt on the student account.

Steps for Employee:

    • Employee takes completed and signed tuition waiver for EMCC or SWSC courses to Cashiers for processing with payment for registration and course fees
      • If submitting via fax/email, payment must be made prior to submission
    • Accountability is the employees accountable work schedule (ex: M-F 9:00 am to 6:00 pm). If the employee's class is during their hours of accountability or between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, the tuition waiver will require additional signature
    • Adjunct faculty is always required to have a signature
