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 (Regis College Faculty Handbook, Section IV(12), page 49 (2011)). To participate in the tuition remission program, employees must complete the Tuition Remission Request form. 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 limited the space available for Regis employees to receive tuition remission for that program. Specifically, Regis approved the EdD program 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. These spaces are granted on a first-come-first-serve basis and Regis currently maintains a waiting list of other employees who are currently unable to enjoy the tuition remission benefit, but have expressed interest in doing so in the future.

In practice, these tuition remission spaces are prioritized for full time teaching faculty at Regis in accordance with appointment and reappointment critieria indicated in the most recent Faculty Handbook. Regarding Regis staff, these tuition remission spaces are prioritized for full time staff who have worked full time at Regis a minimum of three (3) years. Those interested in being considered for these tuition remission spaces are required to complete the application process for the EdD in Higher Education Leadership by December 1, be accepted into the program, and indicated they would like to be considered for this tuition remission benefit on their application. The Director of the EdD in Higher Education Leadership and Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences maintain the waiting list with the Office of Human Resources.
