Tuition Remission Program

Effective Date: 01/01/97

Revised: 10/01/99


To provide the benefit of tuition remission for full time Centenary College employees and their dependents.


Centenary College wishes to encourage its employees to continue their education through either auditing or registering for and attending undergraduate classes. All full time employees may take any undergraduate course free of charge (Limited to one course per semester) after a year of continuous employment at the College.

Dependents of full time Centenary College employees are entitled to a discount schedule for remission of their tuition. A dependent is defined as a legal spouse or biological child of an employee or a child which is the legal ward of an employee.

During the first 12 months of employment dependents are entitled to a 25% discount on tuition; after 12 months of employment a reduction of 50% will be given, after 24 months of employment a reduction of 75% will be given, and after 36 months employees may have full tuition benefits. No fees are included in the remission. Percentages apply to the number of hours the dependent is taking.

Retired and disabled full time employees, as well as dependants of full time employees who die while employed are also eligible for these benefits.

No tuition remission is available for graduate training.

Those eligible for scholarship and federal aid benefits are encouraged to apply for these sources of aid that may be available to them in an effort to reduce the financial burden to the College. College tuition remission will be reduced by the amount the dependent receives from other sources designated as tuition scholarship aid.
