SUBJECT: FACULTY/STAFF DEPENDENT TUITION WAIVER
The Washburn University Board of Regents, on June 9, 1999, approved:
1.) A 50% waiver of tuition for dependent children of full-time faculty and staff.
2.) A 25% waiver of tuition for dependent children of faculty and staff employed at least half-time, but less than full-time.
The goals for the policy included:
1.) Increased enrollment
2.) Assistance in recruitment and retention of qualified faculty and staff.
3.) Revenue enhancement
The tuition waiver for children of faculty and staff has produced positive results over the past two years.
# of Children of Faculty and Staff
The original proposal set a revenue neutral enrollment level at 46 students. In 2000-2001 tuition revenues derived from children of faculty and staff increased over 1998-99 as enrollment moved to 51.
3. It is apparent that the program has been well received and is viewed as a benefit to faculty and staff.
4. The goals outlined above have been met.
