Policy Statement

Article 49 of the State-UUP Agreement provides a UUP Space Available Tuition Waivers program. This program provides UUP represented employees one Space Available Tuition Waiver per semester and special session.



When space is available, employees may enroll in a course on a tuition-free basis at any four-year SUNY school subject to the following requirements:

  1. Employees must meet admission requirements and course prerequisites.
  2. All fees other than tuition shall be paid by the employee. If the employee drops the course, the waiver is void and they are responsible for all fees associated with the course.
  3. Employees may enroll in a maximum of one course per semester and special session, for example, summer session and intersession.
  4. Currently, under Internal Revenue Services (IRS) regulations, employer educational assistance plans are taxable. Employees are eligible for exclusion from taxable income, up to $5250 in a calendar year. Any excess benefit over $5250 is taxable.



You are eligible for a UUP Space Available Waiver if you are on the payroll in a UUP position when the course is regularly scheduled to commence.
