Dependents of regular, full-time faculty or staff who have been employed for 9 or 12 consecutive months, respectively, may take UM courses for credit on a space available basis without charge for tuition. The term "dependents" is defined as spouse and other persons who meet the following qualifications:
If a faculty or staff member with 10 or more consecutive years of regular, full-time UM employment dies or retires while employed by UM, only his/her qualified non-spousal dependents remain eligible for waivers of undergraduate tuition. Eligibility continues until the total of all waivers received prior to and after the death or retirement equals 130 undergraduate semester hours for each qualified dependent, or until they are no longer claimed as dependents on federal income tax returns, whichever occurs first.
Dependents of regular, full-time faculty or staff who have been employed for less than 9 or 12 consecutive months, respectively, may take UM courses for credit with a prorata waiver of tuition, based on the number of months of employment as of the beginning of the academic term(s) for which the waiver is requested.
Tuition only is waived (not fees and other charges). The appropriate form for requesting a dependent tuition waiver is available from the Office of Human Resources.
