Pursuant to North Carolina General Statutes 115D-39(a) and 116-143.3, when an employer other than the armed forces pays tuition for an employee to attend an institution operating pursuant to G.S. 116-143.3 and when the employee works at a North Carolina business location, the employer shall be charged the in-state tuition rate.
To sponsor a student at Wake Tech, the student's employer must complete and sign the Sponsorship by a North Carolina Business form. Completed forms must be submitted by the student through my.waketech.edu by the last day to add a course for the semester. Deadlines for each semester can be found in the academic calendar online.
For the 2023 Summer term, completed forms must be submitted by June 21.
For the 2023 Fall semester, completed forms must be submitted by October 13.
To submit the completed form, the student will need to log in at my.waketech.edu using his or her Wake Tech user ID and password. Once logged in, the student will need to click on "Forms," select the "Business Sponsorship" form and upload and submit the completed form.
Once a form is received, the student's tuition rate will be changed from out-of-state to in-state for the current semester. To see the current tuition rates, visit the Financial Services section of the website and click on "Tuition and Costs."
In order to avoid being dropped for non-payment, an employer sponsorship must be in place prior to any payment deadlines. Wake Tech cannot hold courses for students until a form has been received and approved.
By the end of the semester, Wake Tech will mail a billing statement directly to the employer. Payments should be remitted to the Cashier's Office. In the event that the employer does not pay the tuition, the student will be responsible for the bill at the out-of-state rate.
Sponsorship forms must be submitted each semester.
