Termination of Employment

Tuition remission or exchange will terminate at the end of the semester in which the full-time faculty, administrative or hourly member ceases to be employed by the College. Eligible spouses and dependents are entitled to tuition benefits as long as the staff member remains in the service of the College but their eligibility will not be terminated if the staff member retires under an approved College plan, dies or becomes totally disabled during service, provided the staff member has served a minimum of five years of service prior to retirement, death or disability. The tuition remission privilege would, however, terminate for the spouse upon remarriage.
