NOTE: Employees planning to enroll in a single Wake Tech course only need to submit a Tuition Waiver form. Employees planning to enroll in multiple Wake Tech courses must submit a Tuition Waiver form in addition to a Tuition Assistance application. (Wake Tech Form 813, aka Verification of Registration Fee or Tuition Waiver Form, can be found on the Employee Portal.)

If you answered "Other" to the previous question.

If you are unsure which courses you plan to enroll in during the specified date range, please consult with your advisor or previous catalogs to make an educated guess. You can update your course info with the Foundation office once you register. The Tuition Assistance program cannot offer reimbursement for dropped courses, courses graded below a "C" (for undergraduate courses) or courses graded below a "B" (for graduate and doctorate level courses). Applicants are not required to enter information for all enrolled courses; only the courses for which you will be requesting reimbursement.
