Tuition & Fee Waivers for Cooperating Agency Personnel

 

Tuition and fee waivers are provided, under the following conditions, for cooperating teachers and administrators who receive assignment of practice teachers, who receive assignment of students meeting the "clinical experience" requirement in teacher education curricula, or who cooperate in research projects related to teacher education.  Such persons who register in University courses are exempt from both tuition and the service fee for one semester or summer session for each semester or equivalent of service rendered within two consecutive semesters.

Effective January 15, 2009, except in the Chicago Public School System, in school districts that accept a total of ten or more practice teachers or students meeting the "clinical experience" requirement in teacher education curricula, one-tenth of all tuition and fee waivers may be assigned to a district pool, such that any full-time district employee who registers in University courses may use one of the waivers and be exempt from both tuition and the service fee for one semester or summer session for each semester or equivalent of service rendered within two consecutive semesters.  In the Chicago Public School System, in schools that accept a total of eight or more practice teachers or students meeting the "clinical experience" requirement in teacher education curricula, one-eighth of all tuition and fee waivers may be assigned to school-level pool, such that any full-time school-level employee who registers in University courses may use one of the waivers and be exempt from fees as stated above.

The exemption shall apply to the semester or summer session of registration, as designated by the student, which follows the term of service, but must be applied not later than four terms (including summer as a single term) from the end of the term service.  Concurrent registration on more than one campus of the University or in University extramural courses constitutes one semester or summer session of eligibility for exemption.  Use of tuition and fee waivers is contingent upon admission to one of three campuses of the University of Illinois and/or to one of their academic programs. The tuition and fee waiver will be accepted at any of the three campuses, with the understanding that campuses may reserve the right to restrict the use of waivers.
