UC supports employees who want to advance their education and offers tuition and fee discounts to those who are eligible.

Reduced fees for university classes

Regular status employees who meet the admission requirements of the university are eligible for two-thirds reduction of both the University Registration Fee and the Educational Fee when enrolled in regular session courses of up to nine units or three courses per quarter or semester, whichever provides the greater benefit. If you are eligible to receive reduced fees under this policy, you are not eligible to receive an additional reduction in fees under the Policy and Procedures Concerning Part-Time Study. 

The reduced fee enrollment provision applies to non-represented and most represented employees. Represented employees should consult their bargaining unit's contract for specific information.  

The provision does not include access to student services and facilities provided through the University Registration Fee, which includes but is not limited to counseling centers, gymnasiums or student health services, unless you are otherwise entitled to them. 

UC Online Education discount

The Employee Tuition Discount Pilot Program provides a 33% discount on the cost of UCOE online courses to full and part time faculty and staff, their spouses, domestic partners and eligible dependent children. Each UCOE course is designed and developed by UC faculty with the goal of providing quality education that the world has come to expect from our University.

You must be a current employee (full time or part time). Dependents must be tax dependents as defined under federal tax law. Current, matriculated UC students are not eligible. Participation by represented employees is contingent upon the agreement with their exclusive representative. For more information, visit the UCOE website.
