Students, who are career employees at UCI, UCI Medical Center, or another University of California campus, are eligible for a two-thirds reduction
of the Student Services fee, the University Tuition and Fees, and campus-based fees. This applies for up to 9 units or
3 regular session university courses per quarter, whichever is greater. The Registrar's Office is responsible
for producing a waiver on an approved Employee Application for Reduced Fees.
Examples of what is permitted:
- 3 courses totaling 9 units
- 3 courses totaling 9.5 units
- 3 courses totaling 12 units
- 4 courses totaling 9 units
- 5 courses totaling 9 units
Examples of what is not permitted:
- 4 courses totaling 9.5 units
- 4 courses totaling 10 units
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE STUDENT (Career Employee)
- Employees must follow the university application process and be accepted for admission in a UCI
degree program in order to receive this fee reduction.
- Approval of the Employee Application for Reduced Fees is for one quarter only. A new application
must be completed for each quarter the student desires reduced tuition and fees.
- A student who files an application is not eligible to receive a tuition and fees reduction for part-time status
also, and vice versa.
- Graduate level courses are subject to taxation. The Technical and Miscellaneous Reform Act of 1998 (TAMRA)
has several areas which could impact a UCI employee who receives reduced fees and/or financial
assistance for various courses. University of California undergraduate courses do not fall
within TAMRA's provisions.
- Full-time, career status employees who wish to attend UCI Extension
courses (excludes Access UCI) receive a reduction in the tuition and fees for some courses. Current UCI Extension policies apply.
