Tuition remission policy for Regis faculty and staff

The Regis tuition remission program is a benefit available to Regis employees which covers the tuition cost of one on-campus undergraduate or graduate course per academic semester, for a total of four courses per academic year (see Regis Faculty Handbook). To participate in the tuition remission program, employees must complete the Regis Tuition Remission Request form for Staff/Faculty. As stated on that form, the tuition remission benefit is subject to several conditions, including “[a]vailable classroom space and approval of instructor”.

The financial structure of the EdD program limits the space available for Regis employees to receive tuition remission for that program. Specifically, the EdD program was approved in December, 2012 on the condition that a maximum of two (2) employees may be admitted to the program and eligible for the 100% tuition remission benefit in any given year. All Regis employees have equal access to the two tuition remission spaces in the EdD program. In practice, these spaces are granted on a first-come-first-serve basis with a waiting list.
