Educational Opportunities


Educational benefits are available to faculty, staff and their spouse/partner and dependents. Please refer to the NDSU Policy Manual regarding tuition waivers.  Forms may be obtained from the NDSU Forms page.

Faculty/Staff Tuition Waivers

Each employee is eligible for a tuition waiver for three classes per calendar year.  The Faculty/Staff Tuition Waiver Request must be submitted and approved prior to the beginning of the class for which the waiver is requested.  A separate Waiver Request form is required for each class you are requesting to have waived.

Spouse/Partner and Dependent Tuition Waivers

Spouses/partners and dependents of the employee are eligible for a 50 percent waiver on tuition.  A Spouse/Partner/Dependent Tuition Waiver Application needs to be submitted to Human Resources/Payroll by the Monday two weeks prior to the start of classes each semester for which the waiver is requested.  To ensure that your waiver gets processed and routed to the appropriate entities, please have all requests submitted as soon as possible.
