Faculty Tuition Benefit Provisions

Eligibility

2. Prior verification from the dean of the school in which a full-time faculty appointment is held is required.

3. Eligibility for this benefit is not cumulative or retroactive and applies only to the scholastic period being applied for.

4. A signed and completed form does not guarantee the ability to register for the class.

Specifications

1. This benefit applies to course work taken at La Sierra University.

2. Distance Learning courses, private lessons, laboratory courses, extension courses and other activity and studio courses are excluded. Charges for materials and field trips are paid by the enrollee.

3. The applicant must qualify scholastically for the work to be taken in any school and in any course in which admission is requested.

4. Admittance to a "limited enrollment" course is possible only if there is room after all regular tuition paying students have been accommodated.

5. If the number of regular tuition paying students does not justify offering a course, it will not be offered for the convenience of additional enrollees who are entitled to this tuition benefit. Also, the free tuition benefit may not be applicable if a low student/faculty ration exists in a particular course, and never if the student/faculty ration is 1:1.

6. If a class conflicts with an employee's work schedule, supervisory/chairman approval must be obtained and indicated.
