Important Change to Tuition Waivers

Beginning, January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2019, students that meet conditions in the Pilot Program SB1208 Arizona Revised Statutes 15-1809 , may be eligible to participate in the Foster Care Supplemental Tuition Waiver program, for up to sixteen (16) credit hours per semester (64 total credit hours for the duration of the pilot program).

Beginning July 1, 2013, dependents and spouses of Full-Time Board- approved regular employees and dependents and spouses of Full-time Board-approved specially funded employees can take up to a maximum of sixteen (16) credit hours per semester.

Beginning May 1, 2013, Full-Time Board-approved regular and full-time Board-approved specially funded employees are eligible for a maximum of twelve (12) credit hours per semester.

Beginning July 1, 2011, MCCCD tuition waivers will only cover the in-county cost (for FY11-12 that will be $81 per credit hour). It is important for employees, spouses and dependents to establish residency with the appropriate college Admissions and Records/Enrollment Services Office.

Considerations
An out-of-county employee residing in a county where we have established a reciprocal agreement allowing students to be charged at the in-county rate will still be able to take courses at the in-county rate. MCCCD has established reciprocal agreements with every county in Arizona except Apache and Greenlee. However, students living in those counties may present an Out of County Residence Affidavit to avoid the out-of-county surcharge.

No course, regardless of format or method of delivery (including distance learning or study abroad), will be funded above $84 a credit hour. In essence, the value of a tuition waiver is $84 per credit hour.

Teachers/classroom aides who qualify for the exemption of non-resident tuition will be fully covered for classes which apply since they are eligible for the in-county rate per state statute.
