Tuition Waivers

Tuition Waivers

IMPORTANT NOTE OF CHANGE: All Non-FSU employees must submit completed Tuition Waiver application directly to FSU Student Accounts/Third Party Billing (Attn: Kristen Aube). Non-FSU employees should not submit Tuition Wavier applications to FSU's Office of Human Resources; doing so will only delay your application approval and submission process.

Important tips for Fayetteville State University Employees:

  • A completed application for Faculty and Staff Tuition/Fee Waiver must be submitted to the Office of Human Resources (HR) no later than one day prior to the Tuition /Fee Waiver submission deadline for review, approval, and forwarding for bill processing.
  • No Exception to Policy: Late submissions are not accepted.
  • This is an employee benefit. Employees are responsible for completion, timely submission for approval, and tracking of waiver for fee processing.
  • Tuition waived is considered reportable taxable compensation subject to social security, federal and state tax withholding if the value of the benefit exceeds the IRS established limits. Depending upon prevailing tax laws, for each calendar year, the tuition benefit amount over the IRS threshold will be reported as income on the employee's W-2 form.
