The State of Tennessee offers to its employees the benefit of a free class per semester/term in the form of a fee waiver. Employees participating in the Title IV-E Tuition Assistance Program at a public in-state institution are required to pay for one of their courses each semester or term using this Public Higher Education Fee Waiver Form. If attending a private institution that does not recognize/accept this Fee Waiver, the student must personally pay for 3.0 hours (non-reimbursable). To download this form and/or view complete details on rules and regulations governing its use, please consult these links:
