SUBJECT:†††††††††† Tuition Waiver Benefit Proposal for Faculty and Staff Dependents



The Faculty Senate Executive Committee reviewed the report on the Tuition Waiver Benefit currently available to faculty at the University of Oklahoma on February 2, 2009.Based on the report findings, the current tuition waiver benefit does not appeal to faculty, nearly all of whom have terminal degrees.The Executive Committee recommends: 1) increase the Tuition Waiver Benefit to cover a full load of tuition but not fees; 2) extend this heightened benefit to the dependents of both faculty and staff; and 3) once one and two are completed and OU thereby becomes eligible, join the Tuition Exchange Program.


This report notes that there is a need to review and enhance the current tuition benefit, so that it provides a true benefit for faculty.Nearly all faculty have terminal doctoral degrees, and therefore do not have the need for this benefit as it is currently written.At present, the current tuition benefit appeals much more to full-time OU employees, and includes a waiver of one-half tuition and several fees not to exceed six hours per semester or three hours per summer session.To provide a true benefit for faculty, the current tuition waiver benefit should be extended to faculty membersí spouses and dependents.A sample peer institution currently doing this is the University of Nebraska, which offers Employee/Spouse/Dependent tuition assistance.Faculty members are offered a maximum of 15 credit hours per year to be divided among the employee, the spouse, and/or the dependent, as applicable.All regular, 1.00 FTE employees, including faculty, are eligible, regardless of length of service.Tuition assistance is applied toward 15 credit hours of resident tuition in a 12-month period.This package is administered as a scholarship as part of the total financial aid package.


The Faculty Senate proposes that the tuition waiver benefit for dependents be extended to both faculty and staff membersí dependents.Other regional and Big-12 universities (e.g., Oklahoma City University, Tulsa University, Baylor University and the University of Nebraska) have reported the usefulness of an Employee/Spouse/Dependent tuition assistance as an effective recruitment and retention tool for faculty and staff.Most faculty and many staff members move to Oklahoma with a trailing spouse or partner.The availability of a tuition benefit to retrain a trailing partner for the local job market could make the recruiting difference.Additionally, this could mean the marginal difference in recruiting the children of faculty and staff to attend the University of Oklahoma, which would, in turn, increase overall enrollment and generate new funds for OU, as the dependent student would continue to pay fees for all credit hours as well as all unremitted tuition credit hours exceeding the current benefit cap of 15 credit hours in a 12-month period.


The report also notes that an increase in the Tuition Waiver Benefit is needed in order to remain competitive with other regional institutions.Three nearby regional universities (e.g., OCU, Baylor, and Tulsa University) currently offer a full-tuition waiver benefit for the dependents of their employees.Additionally, these universities join the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP), a consortium in which the employeesí dependents may choose to exercise the benefit from among roughly 600 other private and public universities (e.g., University of Delaware, University of Florida) offering similar 30-credit hour employee/spouse/dependent tuition waiver benefits.Joining the TEP would bring OU in line with other regional universities, and put OU on the ďeducational menuĒ for the dependents of employees of some 600 other universities.


This proposal anticipates that the procedures for implementing the dependent tuition benefit would be the same as for the existing faculty and staff waiver.In addition to providing a tuition benefit that faculty might actually use, the dependenttuition benefit would make OU more competitive with other regional universities, aid recruitment and retention, increase overall enrollment, and attract a more diverse student body from the TEP consortium.Further, the added cost of this benefit is expected to be mitigated by the fact that fees currently equal or exceed tuition at OU, and over time more students will likely attend OU through the TEP consortium.These changes would provide a true tuition benefit for faculty members and staff, thereby greatly boosting morale during a time when a cost-of-living pay increase is not possible.

There is a need for a tuition benefit that provides tuition assistance for faculty membersí spouses and dependents.Currently, the University of Oklahoma offers a tuition benefit to full-time employees, translating into a benefit for staff employees who may seek more education, but not for faculty employees who generally take positions at OU with a terminal doctoral degree.At present, the current tuition benefit for full-time OU employees includes a waiver of one-half tuition and several fees not to exceed six hours per semester or three hours per summer session.Including tuition assistance for a faculty memberís spouse and dependents could serve as effective recruitment and retention tools as we have learned from other regional and Big 12 universities who currently offer this benefit to employees.

Most faculty members move to Oklahoma with a trailing spouse or partner.The availability of a tuition benefit to retrain a trailing spouse for the local job market could make the recruiting difference.Offering this tuition benefit to dependent children of faculty members would serve as both recruitment and retention functions, and would not cost OU much money.At present, there are 161 faculty dependents listed in PeopleSoft between the ages of 15 and 18, which would provide a four-year cohort population estimate given that all dependents within this cohort decided to attend OU (which is unlikely).A real tuition benefit for faculty members could generate much goodwill, especially in years when a cost-of-living pay raise is not in possible.

In surveying Big 12 universities, seven of these universities offer some form of tuition assistance as an employment benefit.Baylor University distinguishes itself as offering the most competitive tuition benefit to its faculty.Across all public universities surveyed, the University of Nebraska provides the model to emulate: a tuition package not to exceed 15 credit hours per academic year for faculty and their dependent spouses and children.Although each program varies widely, most human resources departments place great value on the ability for faculty and, in some cases, faculty dependents or spouses to receive tuition assistance while attending the home institution.

In the next sections, detailed information is offered by Big 12 universities first and then the two leading private universities in Oklahoma, University of Tulsa and Oklahoma City University are included to provide a full picture of OUís state-level position vis-ŗ-vis a tuition remission benefit for faculty members and their dependents.


Universities in the Big 12

* University of Nebraska: Faculty/Spouse/Dependent tuition assistance offered.Faculty is offered a maximum of 15 hours per year to be divided among the employee, the spouse, and/or the dependent, as applicable.All regular, 1.00 FTE employees, including faculty, are eligible, regardless of length of service.Tuition assistance will be applied toward 15 hours of resident tuition in a 12 month period.This package is administered as a scholarship as part of the total financial aid package.

*Baylor University: Offers faculty tuition remission and a spouse/dependent tuition remission.Faculty and staff are eligible for 100% tuition remission for themselves up to eight hours per semester after one year of full time service.Spouse or dependents of faculty and staff are eligible for 100% tuition discount after the Baylor employee has completed three years of full-time service (i.e., spouse tuition discount) or five years of full-time service (i.e., dependent tuition discount).There are graduated amounts of tuition remission depending on years worked.For example, after one year of service, a faculty memberís spouse can receive 50% tuition remission, after two years of service, 75% tuition remission.After one year of service, a faculty memberís dependent can receive 20% tuition remission, etc., up to 100% after the faculty member has completed five yearsí service to Baylor.The tuition remission applies to the spouse or dependentís completion of one undergraduate degree or 36 hours post-baccalaureate.The faculty can receive tuition remission for both a spouse and dependents concurrently.

*University of Missouri:Tuition reduction is offered to employees, faculty, and retirees of UM and to their spouses and dependents.All current faculty and staff are eligible for a 75% tuition reduction up to six hours per semester after a six-month probationary employment period.Spouse and dependents are offered a 50% tuition reduction up to a cumulative 140 undergraduate or graduate hours per spouse or dependent after the faculty or staff member has given five years of full time, benefit-eligible service to UM.

*Kansas State University: Offers tuition reduction to faculty.Independently, the Office of Financial Aid offers a grant to dependents and spouses of faculty.To qualify for the faculty tuition reduction, a faculty or staff member must be a 1.0 FTE employee for one year.The 100% tuition reduction applies three hours of undergraduate or graduate hours per semester for a faculty member.The spouse/dependent grant covers three hours of undergraduate or graduate credit per semester, up to eight semesters, and is only available when all other grants and scholarships have been applied.The spouse/dependent grant is awarded on a first come, first served basis until the resource is exhausted.

*Oklahoma State University:Employees and faculty are offered a fee waiver.Dependents are not eligible for tuition waivers.The fee waiver amounts to 50% tuition reduction at Oklahoma State University up to five hours per semester.Length of service is not a factor in determining eligibility.

*University of Colorado: 100% tuition waiver offered for current, full time faculty.The tuition waiver maximum is nine credit hours per year, but the courses must be related to current employment position.Length of service is not a factor.Dependents are not eligible for tuition waivers.

*University of Kansas: KU offers no tuition benefit for faculty, but does offer scholarships for faculty dependents.This is similar to OUís Heritage Scholarship although the amount of the scholarship is more generous and is funded through a contract with Coca-Cola.Incoming freshmen with a benefit-eligible KU faculty parent can apply for $1,000 awards. Returning students receive $1,000, $750, $500 or $250, depending on GPA.Eligible faculty dependents apply through KU Financial Aid office and the scholarship is administered as part of the total financial aid package.


Other Universities in Oklahoma

Although the University of Tulsa and Oklahoma City University are not Big-12 universities, their tuition benefit is reported here to provide a full idea of the other major Oklahoma universitiesí contribution to tuition assistance (TU, OSU, OU).

*University of Tulsa:TU offers a tuition reduction for faculty, spouse, or dependent undergraduate or graduate degree.The tuition reduction is equal to 50% of the faculty, spouse, or dependentsí tuition if the faculty member has been employed by TU for less than a year, and 100% once the faculty member has been employed by TU over one year.The tuition reduction is limited to 9 hours per semester.Other student financial aid awards must be exhausted before the tuition benefit applies.Undergraduate tuition is a waiver applied directly to the studentsí account.Graduate or law tuition is processed by Payroll as part of the faculty memberís compensation package and is issued as a payroll check, subject to taxation, to the employee.

*Oklahoma City University: Although not a member of the Big 12, nor a public institution, OCU was surveyed in order to get a picture of the tuition benefits offered by the closest university to OU.OCU offers tuition remission for faculty dependents after the faculty member has given four months of service.Undergraduate tuition remission equals 100% of tuition for undergraduate courses and 75% of graduate tuition, applied toward unlimited hours each semester.



To meet the need for a tuition benefit that provides tuition assistance for faculty membersí spouses and dependents, the University of Nebraska model makes the most sense as a first step to provide a meaningful tuition benefit for faculty at the University of Oklahoma, (i.e., a tuition package not to exceed 15 credit hours per academic year for faculty and their dependent spouses and children).

Additionally, Appendix 1 of this document provides research on the possibility of a tuition exchange program as an alternative, innovative longer-term goal that could also aid in faculty retention.Reciprocity models currently exist such as the Tuition Exchange Program and the Council of Independent Colleges Program.Exchange models are also found in the Academic Common Market, to which the University of Oklahoma belongs, and similar regional agreements (Midwest Student Exchange, etc.) based on the absence of a specific major in the studentís home state.If the University of Oklahoma were to become a participant in the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP), founded in the 1950s and comprised of almost 600 educational institutions, dependents of OU faculty may one day be able to attend a TEP institution tuition free.A student from another member institution would come to OU if qualified, and a qualified OU faculty dependent could then attend that other institution.Using the PeopleSoft data from page 1 of this report, we know that a maximum estimate for OU participation would be about 160 dependents.Local universities currently doing this include Oklahoma City University and the University of Tulsa.

Finally, this report aims to foster some discussion on a new benefit which would be meaningful for recruitment and retention, but morale in the short term.In the last ten years at this University, town meetings are generally held to discuss a reduced benefit for faculty.This report is written in the spirit that we can reverse this trend for the future well being of this institution and its heart, the faculty.





††††††††††† In theory, a tuition exchange program is an innovative idea that could aid in faculty retention.In practice, it is somewhat complex to implement and maintain, due to legalities and the differing price of tuition among learning institutions. Reciprocity models currently exist such as the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) and the Council of Independent Colleges Program (CICP).Exchange models are also found in the Academic Common Market (ACM), to which the University of Oklahoma belongs, and similar regional agreements (i.e., Midwest Student Exchange, etc.) based on the absence of a specific major in the studentís home state.

††††††††††† The idea of tuition exchange is nestled within the idea that a faculty member of the University of Oklahoma could pay OU tuition for his or her dependent and then exchange those credits with a faculty member at another Big 12 institution, such as the University of Nebraska or the University of Kansas.A faculty member at the University of Nebraska would then pay in-state tuition for his or her child to attend the University of Oklahoma.The human resources (HR) departments of the Big 12 universities surveyed were not familiar with this idea of a tuition exchange program as one university exchanging with peer institutions.Third party organizations, such as the Academic Common Market or the Midwest Student Exchange, tend to manage reciprocal arrangements that do exist similar to this.According to the HR departments surveyed, a proposal would need to be presented to the Regents of each university in order to gauge interest and feasibility of a reciprocal program.

††††††††††† From the research undertaken, membership of the University of Oklahoma in the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) discussed below would be a first step to make a tuition exchange program a reality as a benefit for OU faculty members.


Tuition Exchange Program: Founded in the 1950s, the TEP is an organization made up of nearly 600 mostly private educational institutions.Public universities comprise 8 percent of the member schools.Some of the major public universities which participate in the TEP include the University of Florida, the University of Delaware, and University of Pittsburgh.Regionally accredited public and non-profit institutions of higher education are eligible for membership.The initiation fee is $350 and annual dues are $400, with a $35 fee each year for each Tuition Exchange student sponsored by the university.Oklahoma City University and the University of Tulsa are the only two Oklahoma institutions currently participating in the TEP.Baylor University is the only Big 12 institution participating in the TEP.

The Tuition Exchange Program is generally awarded for eight semesters of undergraduate study at a member institution.The scholarship is awarded, administered, and funded by the institutions themselves, not by the TEP.(This is where the 100% tuition remission offered by Baylor, OCU, and TU can be combined with the TEP, giving the student 100% tuition at a participating college.For example, a faculty member at TU can have her child attend Baylor University tuition-free if all qualifications are met, because the dependent is eligible for 100% tuition remission at TU, and this can be used to attend Baylor in exchange for another student coming to TU from a TEP school).The student must meet admission requirements at the desired institution. The number of annual scholarships averages 5,300 per year among TEP members.This is a true trade agreement, with no finances being exchanged and no money being paid.Institutions must maintain an equal number of imports and exports.

The home institution decides how to determine eligibility for this program and how many students will be awarded.For example, at Oklahoma City University, dependents of faculty who have given at least four months of service can apply for the Tuition Exchange Program on behalf of their dependents.OCU chooses qualified applicants for the Tuition Exchange Scholarship, and must accept an equal number of imports from member institutions.

The University of Tulsa offers the Tuition Exchange Program benefit to dependents of faculty who have completed a year of service.TU determines how many of these scholarships to award based on how many imports will be coming to TU.TU considers this program to be extremely valuable in terms of faculty retention, with faculty considering the TEP as one of the best benefits available at the institution.


Academic Common Market:The second model for reciprocity is the Academic Common Market (ACM), which is coordinated by the Southern Regional Educational Board.The University of Oklahoma belongs to the ACM.It is an agreement between Southern states to allow a student to obtain a degree in another state while paying in-state tuition if that field of study is not available in the home state.If a student is approved for the Academic Common Market from another state, the institution that the student attends issues a waiver for the non-resident portion of tuition.The student is then responsible for in-state tuition to that institution.

For example, applicants from Delaware and West Virginia seeking a bachelorís in architecture are eligible, once approved, to pay in-state tuition at OU.Applicants from Arkansas, Delaware, and Virginia seeking a masterís in Library Information Studies are eligible, once approved, to pay in-state OU tuition.

Students from Oklahoma seeking a bachelorís in Landscape Architecture may pay in-state tuition at Louisiana State University, once approved by the program.Oklahoma students seeking a masterís in Kinesiology can pay in-state tuition at the University of Kentucky, if approved.

Member states in the ACM include Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.To apply for the Academic Common Market, a student applies for approval through the ACM coordinator in his or her home state.Similar associations, such as the Midwest Student Exchange and the Western Undergraduate Exchange, exist to serve other parts of the country with the same goal of providing in-state tuition to a non-resident seeking a major not available in the home state.
