Educational Assistance

The University provides a Tuition Waiver and an Academic Assistance program for eligible University employees. The current policy on Tuition Waivers and Academic Assistance is out of date in a number of ways. As we work to make the necessary adjustments, please refer to the Tuition Waiver Guidelines below for temporary guidance. For further questions, please contact Emily Wilson, wilsones1@appstate.edu or 262-6486.

Deadline for 2017-18 Year

The State of North Carolina requires member institutions to publish a due date for waiver requests. The deadline for requests has been, and will continue to be, the last day of the drop/add period. Below are the deadlines for the 2017-2018 Academic Year. We encourage employees to utilize this valuable resource to further your professional and personal development.

  • Fall 2017 Deadline - August 28th, 2017
  • Spring 2017 Deadline - January 22nd, 2018
  • Summer 1 Deadline - May 30th, 2018
  • Summer 2 Deadline - July 6th, 2018

Waivers must be processed electronically from the Office of Human Resources to the Office of Student Accounts, so the form must be received prior to 12pm on each deadline. Waivers received after this date will not be processed.
