I.  Continuing Education Self Supporting Programs - Adjunct, clinical, and concurrent faculty enrolled in self-supporting courses or programs do not receive the employee tuition benefit as described in this policy.  However, some programs or courses may provide an employee discount (contact Continuing Education for details).  All discounts applicable to the self-supporting courses or programs will be subject to the following qualifications:

1.  A sufficient number of tuition-paying students must be enrolled to run the class under normal decision guidelines.  In addition, all direct costs must be covered before any tuition discounts can be applied.

2.  Space must be available in the class without excluding tuition-paying students.
