Who Is Governed by this Policy
Students, Faculty and Staff
Many schools, like Adelphi, offer tuition waiver certificates or tuition credit vouchers to school districts or agencies which have provided student teaching and field placement experiences to its students. It provides a means for these mentors to attend a limited number of classes free of charge so that they can continue their own professional development.
These waivers have expiration dates and are limited to no more than 6 credits per semester and 12 credits per academic year.
The School of Education has included these policies on the use of these waivers in the manual given to each cooperating teacher’s school district.
These certificates are not permitted to be bought or sold.
Adelphi has a generous package of tuition remission benefits for its employees and their dependents as well as tuition exchange and graduate assistantships.
