1.01 Credit Courses
Full-time employees may enroll without charge in up to seven semester hours of credit courses per semester. Tuition and all other fees (except other fees charged for private music lesson, and special fees as designated) are waived for such employees. Only one of these courses may be taken during the employee’s regularly scheduled work hours if it is directly job related, and is approved in writing in advance by the employee’s supervisor. Employees must complete an Employee Tuition Exemption Scholarship Application (see DEB Exhibit A).

1.02 Noncredit Courses
Fulltime employees may take community services courses without charge. Only one course at a time may be taken during the employee’s regularly scheduled work hours if it is directly job related, and is approved in writing in advance by the employee’s supervisor. Tuition and fees are waived for all courses except Driver’s Safety, and special materials, supplies, and certification fees. When the College District offers courses and programs in partnership with other entities, the amount of the tuition and fee waiver may not exceed the total revenue allocated to the College District for each student.

1.03 Retirees and Trustees
Fulltime employees officially retired from the College District, their spouses, and current and retired Trustees may also take Community Services classes and up to seven semester hours of credit courses without charge. Books, special materials, supplies, and certificate fees are not waived.
