Pursuant to NCGS 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 this Chapter (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 go.waketech.edu by the last day to add a course for the semester. *Please be sure to review the academic calendar at calendars.waketech.edu for the last day to add a course.
For the 2020 summer term, completed forms must be submitted by June 24, 2020, in order to be effective for the 2020 summer term.
For the 2020 fall semester, completed forms must be submitted by October, 20, 2020, in order to be effective for the 2020 fall semester.
To submit the completed form, the student will need to log in at go.waketech.edu using their Wake Tech user ID and password. Once logged in, the student will need to click on the menu, followed by the student, and then student forms. The student will then select the Business Sponsorship form and upload their completed Sponsorship by a North Carolina Business form and click submit.
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 payment.waketech.edu 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 by North Carolina Business Forms must be submitted each semester.
