The maximum number of courses for which eligible employees may enroll under Fee Waiver is 2 courses or 6 units, whichever is greater. Courses in self-support programs may not be taken on the fee waiver program.
If you are a full-time tenured employee on a full or partial leave of absence, the following number of units may be taken under Fee Waiver:
Percentage of Leave / Maximum Semester Units
Courses above the maximums may be taken. However, an employee taking courses in addition to the maximums for his/her unit will be required to pay an additional charge.
Employees participating in the Career Development Program may wish to enroll as a regular student. In order to matriculate, an employee must also file a CSU Application for Admission, submit official transcripts from previous schools and be determined eligible for admission like any other student. Advantages of matriculation are 1) employees may work on completing a degree and 2) employees can register early for subsequent terms like any other "regular" student, as long as you are in continuous attendance.
Employees participating in Job-Related Employee Training or those participating in the Career Development Program who do not wish to apply for admission are not required to complete an Application for Admission and may be admitted as Special Admissions under the authority of Subdivision (e) of Section 41804 of Title 5, California Administrative Code as implemented in these procedures. Usually, courses are taken under the "Special Admission" provision unless the goal of the Fee Waiver plan is a degree.
Fee Waiver application materials are available at http://www.humboldt.edu/hsuhr/employee/waiver/. If participating in the Career Development Program, employees must first complete and have approved a Career Development Plan. The Fee Waiver application process is the same for both the Career Development and Job-Related Employee Training Programs:
Fee waiver applications are due three weeks prior to the first day of instruction. This deadline must be adhered to in order to avoid late fees and class cancellation.
Fee waiver applications will not be accepted after the conclusion of the current semester.
Permission may be granted by the Fee Waiver applicant's supervisor or department head to take one Job-Related or Career Development Course during work hours. Or, alternate work hours may be assigned so that a course occurring during normal work hours may be attended while still maintaining a normal workweek. Approval to take a course during work hours is subject to the supervisor's or department head's judgment that the operational needs of the department will continue to be met.
