Tuition Waiver for Summer Sessions - 302.6
|University of Arkansas at Little Rock|
|Policy Name: Tuition Waiver for Summer Sessions|
|Policy Number: 302.6 (formerly 465.0)|
|Effective Date: May 11, 2000|
To ensure that abuse does not occur in the future and to express fairness for all employees, both classified and non-classified, the following policy has been adopted.
UALR will allow tuition remission on a maximum of two courses (six credit hours) during the summer semester. The summer semester is defined as the entire period between the end of the spring semester and the beginning of the fall semester. A supervisor may approve tuition remission for a maximum of one course during working hours during the entire summer semester. However, no supervisor is required to grant such approval.
Under Section IV, Employee Enrollment and Work Assignment Responsibility, there is no reference to allowing courses during working hours in summer. UALR employees have traditionally been allowed one course during working hours in the summer. UALR will continue that policy, if the supervisor approves. Allowing an employee to take a course during working hours in the summer is an exception to board policy and does not have to be granted. Allowing an employee to take a course during working hours in spring and fall, though permitted under the policy, is not required at any time, supervisors are urged to grant this exception only if coverage of the employee’s responsibilities can be properly maintained.
