SUBJECT: FACULTY/STAFF DEPENDENT TUITION WAIVER





Description:

The goals for the policy included:

1.) Increased enrollment

2.) Assistance in recruitment and retention of qualified faculty and staff.

3.) Revenue enhancement



Status Report:

The tuition waiver for children of faculty and staff has produced positive results over the past two years.
