Tuition Waiver For Spring 2022 Is Now Open!

November 22, 2021 8:30 AM

Tulane University’s Tuition Waiver Program for 2022 Spring Semester form is now available and will close on Friday, January 28, 2022.

The Tuition Waiver Program provides the opportunity for employees and their family members to continue their education at Tulane. Each semester, eligible employees and their eligible family members may receive an exemption from tuition only by completing the online tuition waiver form.

Below are the steps eligible employees should consider before submitting a waiver for you or your dependents:

  1. Register with Tulane University as a student in an Approved Program
  2. Obtain a Student Banner #
  3. Register for classes
  4. Dependents should be listed in Self-Service and on your most recent tax return
  5. Apply in Gibson Online for a Tuition Waiver (See: How to complete an employee waiver or How to complete a dependent waiver

For more information, please see page 58 of the Staff Handbook or visit the Tuition Waiver Program

Please Keep In Mind:

  • Value of the waiver: 
    • The amount of the waiver for a dependent will equal the total tuition for the courses, which the student is enrolled in for the semester at the time of posting.
    • The amount of the waiver for an employee is equal to two classes or six hours (with the two most expensive classes being credited first) at the time of posting.
  • If you have issues with the amount waived: 
    • Since students may be adding and dropping classes, the credit may not cover all of the courses available for waiver. If you have questions concerning the value of the credit, please contact: Account Receivable at 504-865-5368
  • Tax Returns: 
    • Attach a copy of your most recent Federal Income Tax Return indicating that the student was claimed as a dependent. You may blackout all financial information and Social Security Numbers. Please do not include schedules and supporting forms.
