Senate Bill 19-20-25

Bill ID: 19-20-25
Name: Review of the UMD Policies and Procedures Concerning Tuition Remission
Proposed: 10/30/2019
Sponsor: David Rieger, Assistant Director, University Human Resources
Proposal: The University of Maryland, College Park Policy and Procedures Concerning Tuition Remission for Faculty and Staff VII-4.10(A) has not been revised since 1991. It is not only out of alignment with the Policy on Tuition Remission and Tuition Reimbursement for Regular and Retired Nonexempt and Exempt Staff and Faculty Employees of the University System of Maryland VII-4.10 but also with evolving trends in higher education to offer courses in formats outside the traditional academic semesters (fall and spring). The policy also does not align with our current practice of providing tuition remission for courses taken during the winter and summer terms.

The policy should be revised to align with USM policy, current UMD practice, and varying course formats. The revised policy would support the implementation of new systems for requesting and approving tuition remission requests that UHR has already put in place.

Proposed revisions to the policy are attached to the proposal.
