This policy applies to full-time and part-time (20 hours per week or more or at least half time) regular status faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University and to their dependent children, spouses or registered domestic partners, unless specifically covered by collective bargaining agreements made between Gallaudet University and certified bargaining agents.
Gallaudet University encourages employees and their family members to continue their formal education and provides tuition waiver at Gallaudet for approved coursework, including sign language, provided the applicant meets the admissions requirements and is accepted, and, following admission of tuition-paying students, there is available space within the class. Tuition and mandatory fees (those required of all students at the time of registration) only are waived.
All IRS and U.S. Tax Court rulings regarding withholding and reporting requirements for tuition waiver benefits are followed by the University. A dependent child is defined in accordance with IRS regulations.
An employee who receives tuition waiver on his/her own behalf or on behalf of his/her family member acknowledges the terms and conditions outlined in this policy and on the application form. If the employee or family member does not comply, the University will implement collection procedures if necessary.
