  1. TUITION REMISSION
    1. Full-time Faculty (and Spouses)

      Regular full-time faculty may enroll in undergraduate or graduate courses at the University for two (2) courses per semester not to exceed eight (8) credits per regular semester and one (l) course each summer session not to exceed four (4) credits with full tuition remission. One (l) course during the January session may be substituted for one (l) summer session. After one year of continuous employment, spouses of full-time faculty members may be entitled to receive the same tuition remission benefits as full-time faculty members. This benefit does not include courses in doctoral programs, University College of Continuing Education, courses in the Law School or tutorial or independent study courses for which faculty are compensated on a per capital basis.

      In no case do the above privileges extend to fees.

      The University reserves the right to cancel any course in which enrollment of tuition paying students does not meet the minimum number of required students for the course to be offered.
    2. Dependent Child Tuition Remission

      The dependent children of regular full-time members of the faculty and staff of     the University may enroll as full-time undergraduate students in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree without payment of the tuition charges in excess of tuition scholarships and grants received from Federal, State, or other agencies in accordance with the following schedule:

      After one year of continuous employment, one quarter of the net tuition cost over and above the tuition scholarship and grant entitlements from non-university sources.

      After two years of continuous employment, one half of the net tuition cost over     and above the tuition scholarship and grant entitlements from non-university sources.

      After three years of continuous employment, three quarters of the net tuition cost over and above the tuition scholarship and grant entitlements from non- university sources. After four years of continuous employment, full tuition cost over and above the tuition scholarship and grant entitlements from non-university sources.

      NOTE:

      The dependent child must be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate (l2 s.h. or more) student in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree.

      Tuition remission is granted subject to reduction by amounts received by the student from other sources, including Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and the    Basic Opportunity Grants (BEOG). All required fees and deposits must be paid in full.
    3. Adjunct Faculty (or spouse, or dependent child)

      Adjunct faculty (or spouse, or dependent child) are entitled to tuition remission in accordance with the following schedule:

      After completing four (4) semesters of service - (exclusive of Summer Sessions) -

      one (l) course per semester and one (l) Summer Session to a maximum of four (4) credits per course.

      After ten (l0) regular semesters -
                             
      two (2) courses per semester and one (l) each Summer Session to a maximum of four (4) credits per course.

      The adjunct faculty member must be currently employed to be eligible for this benefit.

      This benefit does not include courses in doctoral programs, courses in the Law School, tutorial or independent study courses for which the faculty are compensated on a per capita basis, or graduate courses in the case of dependent children.
                  
      NOTES for Section I A-C.
      Courses must be taken outside of the regular working day.

      If an employee resigns or is released during a semester, the course(s) that she/he or the     spouse is taking may be dropped without payment. If the employee and/or spouse        elects to continue the course(s) while no longer in the employ of the University, tuition     will be prorated for the balance of the semester.
  2. CHILDREN'S SCHOLARSHIP PLAN

    The faculty children's scholarship has been developed by Hofstra University to provide financial aid for study at another institution.

    Dependent children of regular full-time faculty must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program pursuing a baccalaureate degree at another accredited four (4) year institution.

    Up to $750 per year is allowed toward the cost of tuition after five (5) years of employment. This amount is prorated for shorter periods of employment.

    These scholarships are awarded only during the time a faculty member is employed by Hofstra University, with the exception that the provisions of the Faculty Policy Series will be followed in the event of the death or retirement or disability of the parent. The dependent child or children entering college will be awarded a scholarship in the maximum amount as set forth above for the first semester of attendance. This scholarship will be renewed for each succeeding semester upon attainment of satisfactory scholastic standing. The program will be administered by the Director of Personnel who will remit funds directly to the college or university concerned. The Scholarship and Student Aid Committee of the Hofstra University Senate will be asked to adjudicate special cases not clearly provided for, as well as to interpret abnormal grading systems.

    Tuition shall be remitted for full-time faculty children who are legal dependents (as defined by Federal Internal Revenue Standards), irrespective of age and/or marital status while enrolled at Hofstra University. Exceptions will be considered under special circumstances.

    The maximum amount allowable under this program is eight (8) semesters.
