UBC employee tuition waivers

Most UBC employee groups are eligible for tuition fee waivers that reimburse or offset the cost of most UBC Extended Learning courses. Find out more about tuition waivers including information on eligibility and instructions on how to use your tuition fee benefit toward UBC Extended Learning courses.

Please submit your tuition waiver request at least one business day before the course start date and before registering for a UBC Extended Learning course. If your unit, department or faculty is funding the course, payment can be made via an Internal Service Delivery (ISD) in Workday. Please contact us to arrange the transfer.
