Waiver Program for
The Tuition Waiver program applies only to courses at Hope College. It applies to you, your spouse, your children by birth or adoption (to age 30, without a dependency requirement), and your dependent stepchildren (to age 25, with a dependency requirement).
Dependent status is granted to those unmarried, stepchildren who have been members of your family for a minimum of three years prior to your first application for a tuition waiver. As a member of your family, it is required that your stepchild’s regular, permanent residence be the same as yours. Upon request, you must verify that your stepchild has met the residency requirement.
Those eligible may receive a complete or partial waiver of tuition when enrolling in courses offered by Hope College, including the following off-campus programs sponsored and administered by the college: the Philadelphia Semester, the Washington Honors Semester, the Queretaro Program, off-campus May/June/July Term programs, and Vienna Summer School. Each beneficiary is limited to 10 semesters of eligibility, regardless of whether they are enrolled part-time or full-time.
The Tuition Waiver Program policy has changed effective July 1, 2006
Each person's tuition waiver calculation will vary based on their time of service to Hope and their financial aid situation. The percentage of tuition waiver is applied after applicable financial aid has been deducted.
Adjunct faculty (and their families) receive a tuition waiver of 100% of a pro-rated amount based on their average annual workload, using 24 credit hours per year as the full-time equivalent, over the latest 3-year period.
Other part-time faculty (and their families) receive 10% per year of service of a pro-rated amount based on their average annual workload using 24 credit hours per year as the full-time equivalent.
