Employment & Benefits
Enrollment in Course of Instruction
The College will waive tuition charges for benefit eligible staff employees who enroll as special students for one course per academic term at Carleton. The employee must first have Human Resources validate the form indicating benefit eligibility before securing the approval of the Registrar during the first week of the term. The employee should then seek the approval of their supervisor and the course instructor. The supervisor or department head may not be able to grant approval depending on operational requirements, but is urged to do so if at all possible. Course hours are unpaid and missed work time must be made up.
