The State University Employee (SUE) Tuition Waiver Program provides University and Research Foundation employees with official forgiveness of part of the tuition for courses taken within the SUNY system.
Tuition only may be waived. Employees are responsible for all fees, including the University fee.
The amount waived is contingent upon available funding. The usual reimbursement rate is up to 50 percent of up to six credits per semester for part-time employees, and up to 50 percent of up to eight credits for full-time employees.
University employees may also be eligible for tuition assistance through negotiated programs. We encourage employees to use these programs in lieu of the SUE program where possible, in order to maximize the tuition support they receive. Your SUE waiver will be adjusted accordingly if you receive other tuition assistance for the same course(s).
Application forms are available from the Office of Human Resources website or the HR Offices in Utica and Albany. The employee must complete and sign and date the application. The employee’s supervisor must sign and date the application in Part II, #11, prior to submission to HR.
Due to funding limitations, applications received after established deadlines will be placed on a waiting list pending determination of available funding. Employees will be promptly notified by email as soon as action has been taken on their application.
