State employee tuition waiver

Eligible State of Washington employees may enroll for up to 6 credits (fall and spring term) as described in the WSU Business Policies and Procedures Manual 60.70 (BPPM).

Employees should read through the BPPM for eligibility, course exclusions and other important information.

  • Admission to WSU is required.
  • Course exclusions include 100% online (asynchronous) courses (including all Global Campus courses), internships, practicums, independent study, and others as listed in BPPM 60.70.
  • Some College of Nursing and College of Education courses are ineligible; contact a department advisor for more information.
  • If a Vancouver course has online synchronous meetings, it MAY be eligible (contact the Registrar’s Office with questions).
  • Human Resources begins approving employee tuition requests a week before the term begins.
  • Employee waiver students will be enrolled by the Registrar’s Office on the first day of the term if there is space in the class. If a student enrolls themselves in courses for the waiver, the waiver will not apply.
  • Deadline for submission of completed form: 2nd Friday of the term.
