Employee Educational Scholarship Program for Faculty Dependent Children (EESP-D) – Tuition Waiver

Purpose of Program and Eligibility Requirements:

This program provides a University benefit that will aid in the recruitment and retention of FAU faculty. Employees eligible for FAU’s EESP who do not use their six (6) credit hours of instruction (graduate or undergraduate) per term may instead participate in the dependent child tuition plan for an IRS qualified dependent child. The dependent/student will be responsible for any and all non-refundable fees as identified in the university catalog and regulations


Only Undergraduate classes are eligible. These credits do not accrue.


A dependent child must be duly admitted to an undergraduate degree program and must be enrolled in a minimum of thirty (30) credits per academic year, with a minimum of twelve (12) credits in the Fall semester, and twelve (12) credits in the Spring semester.


The parent or employee will be responsible for paying the tuition and fees for any courses dropped (except for courses dropped on an emergency basis) by the student after the official Drop/Add period during the first week of classes. If the individual withdraws from the university before the end of the last day to withdraw the parent or employee will be responsible for paying that portion of tuition and fees that is not subject to refund.


Students enrolled must maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA. If the student falls below a 2.0 cumulative GPA for the term, the parent or employee will be responsible to repay the credits applied for that semester’s EESP.


All other policies and rules of the EESP apply. Please see Standard EESP for additional Details.


Implementation Date: Beginning Spring Semester, 2019 for UFF CBA (2018-2021). Ratified 11/13/18.
