The tuition waiver program waives tuition, admissions fees, and the fees indicated in the table below. This means no money changes hands.  As a result, if staff/faculty members who use tuition waiver want to use any of the student facilities or services such as the gyms and fitness centers on campus or the light rail, they must be paid for out-of-pocket.
