Adjunct Faculty & Tuition Waiver

Adjunct faculty may be entitled to enrollment in courses at any University in the MnSCU System without payment of tuition or fees, excluding laboratory and special course fees.  

Generally an adjunct must teach four credits in an academic year (excluding summer) to be eligible.  The number of credits available to eligible adjunct faculty is equal to the number of credit hours taught by that individual within that year (a year begins the first day of fall semester and concludes the day before the beginning of the succeeding fall semester). 

The tuition and fee waiver must be used in the period from the first day of fall semester to the day before the succeeding fall semester in which the faculty member is employed. The faculty member’s spouse or dependent children may share this right within the credit limit established above, with waiver of tuition only.

Application for tuition waiver is time sensitive. Generally applications must be received on-line within 10 days of the start of the class for which the waiver is sought.
