Easier employee tuition fee waiver process

The University of Toledo Human Resources and Talent Development Department has implemented an online process for submitting tuition fee waivers.

Employees of the University who are eligible to participate in the tuition fee waiver benefit for themselves, spouses, domestic partners or dependents now can submit waivers online, which is easy and less time-consuming. Previously, employees were required to complete a paper form for each family member registered for each semester.

“This new system is faster and leaves less room for error,” said Laura Miller, director of benefits.

Employees can access the tuition fee waiver registration through the myUT portal in the employee tab. You must have your UTAD username, password and Rocket number for each person who will use the tuition fee waiver. The student must be registered prior to submitting the waiver.

This is phase three of the Benefits Department enhancing its processes to assist employees in submitting information to participate in University-provided benefits.

“This conversion is a great way to cut costs and help the University’s effort to be green,” Miller said.

Online open enrollment was implemented in October 2011 for 2012 benefits, online new hire enrollment was implemented in January, and the online tuition fee waiver process has been implemented for fall semester.
