Employees Waiver Due to COVID-19 Tuition Discount
We have received board approval for an exception to the BP 440.1 policy. This approval allows employees impacted by the temporary percent time reduction to remain eligible for a tuition discount for the summer and fall terms of 2020. This policy exception remains in place through July 31, 2020.
The online system at UAMS will not be able to accommodate employees below 100% FTE status from applying. Therefore, a paper form for either the employee or dependent will be required. The completed approved form can be faxed to 501-686-5386.
For Discounts Processed through UAMS Registrar’s Office
To be eligible to receive Employee Tuition Discount:
1. The employee must complete and submit the Online Tuition Discount Form
(https://tuitiondiscount.uams.edu) no later than the last day of Regular Registration as published
