Employee Benefits

Tuition Waiver

The University of Wyoming encourages benefited employees to make use of the opportunity to enroll in academic courses.  Tuition and mandatory fees for one course up to 6 credit hours will be waived each semester, including the summer session.  Spouses of benefited employees enrolled as a part-time or full-time University student may enroll in one course of up to six (6) semester hours of credit during each fall semester, spring semester (or J winter term) and summer session at one half the tuition rate as outlined in the University Fee Book. A tuition waiver form is required for each separate semester and summer session. Read the full policy in UW Regulation 7-11.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I sign up to take a class?
After enrolling in the course of your choice, please submit the completed tuition waiver to your supervisor for both their signature and an appointing authority's signature, who has full signing authority. After all signatures are in place, the form can be turned into Human Resources on or before the first day of class.

My tuition waiver is not showing on my account. What now?
Tuition waivers are processed after the last drop/add date each semester. Please note that the posting of the tuition waiver can take up to ten days to process after the last drop/add date.

Why didn't my tuition waiver pay for everything?
Tuition waivers only cover tuition and mandatory fees for one class up to six credit hours. Computing and course specific fees, like Outreach delivery fees or studio fees, are not covered by your waiver and are your responsibility to pay. If you are taking more than one class, you are responsible for the full tuition of additional classes, plus any course specific fees.

Where do I find the Laramie County Community College tuition waiver?
There is a separate form for LCCC which may be found on the LCCC website, or by contacting them directly. Please note that the employee is responsible for submitting this form to LCCC after all signatures are in place, including the HR representative’s signature.  LCCC waiver does not apply to spouses.

Do I get release time for LCCC classes or other Wyoming community college classes?
Release time is not granted for classes taken at LCCC.
