Dependent Child Waiver Eligibility
Employee Status: A UConn employee must be employed a minimum of 50% to be eligible for a dependent child tuition waiver. Less than 100% employment requires a waiver to be prorated to the current percent of employment (from 50% – 100%).
Student Status: The student who will be benefitting from the waiver must be the dependent child of an eligible University employee and less than 24 years of age in the calendar year in which the child will receive the waiver. If the dependent’s surname differs from the University employee’s surname, a brief explanation must be provided.
The student must be matriculating into an undergraduate program at the University
Upon initial application proof of age and dependent status must be provided to Human Resources in the form of an original birth certificate. HR may request a non-amended copy of an original State of CT or Federal Tax return upon initial application, or upon request by Human Resources at any time while the child is benefiting from a waiver.
The benefit applies to Fall & Spring semesters only.
A separate waiver request must be submitted for each child, each semester.
Specifically Excluded from the Tuition Waiver
- General University fees; or any other fees.
- Intersession, summer session, graduate classes.
Special Considerations for Education Abroad Students
Dependent Child Tuition Waivers cover only the tuition component of an eligible dependent’s course fee. It will not cover any room and board charges or any other assessed fees.
Most Education abroad programs have no tuition component or a tuition component that is considerably less than the UConn tuition fee. The waiver will equal the actual amount of the tuition charge for the student’s program.
Please check with the Education Abroad Program administration for the specifics of your dependent’s particular Education Abroad Program.
