SUNY B-140W Tuition Waiver Program
Application is made directly through the Human Resources Department, 201 Culkin Hall.  Documentation of other tuition support requests/payments is required.  This program is used for supplemental support AFTER the employee has sought/received support from other sources.  This program can only be used for courses at SUNY schools.  Actual support received varies, but traditionally the maximum amounts awarded are 75% for the first course (either graduate or undergraduate 3 credit course) and 50% for the second course.  A maximum of two courses per semester may be awarded at the same rate of an employee's current employment percentage (i.e. $810 {3 cr. UG} x 75% = $607.50 for 1st course, and $810 {3 cr UG} x 50% = $405 for a total of $1012.50 for two courses B-140 award).
