12. Tuition Waiver for Dependents

Tuition Waiver for Dependents

Full-time employees at Bacone College are entitled to a waiver of tuition for dependents. Dependent status is verified by immediate past or current year status in employees IRS filing. The maximum tuition waiver granted is for the full cost of tuition. In addition, activity fees are waived, but all other fees are charged according to the current fee schedule. All dependents are required to apply for all federal financial aid available to them. However, the financial aid director, in cases where it is apparent that the dependent is not entitled to any federal financial aid, may make a specific waiver of this requirement, in writing. When federal financial aid, including Pell grants and SEOG’s, is made available to a student, the tuition waiver will then be in an amount that when used in conjunction with the federal aid, meets the costs of tuition, additional fees, plus all required textbooks, for the courses in which the dependent is enrolled.

The tuition waiver is not granted in addition to the federal financial aid, but is used to supplement, as needed, the total cost of tuition fees and textbooks. Other financial aid granted to the dependent, such as work study and OTAG are allowed in addition to the tuition waivers, provided they do not exceed the demonstrated need budget of the student. Institutional financial aid is not given to dependent students in addition to the tuition waiver.
