Employee tuition waiver applications for the spring 2020 semester are due Jan. 17. There is only one deadline date for the semester.

Waivers must be submitted prior to the full term drop/add deadline for each semester. This includes all terms/sessions within the semester. For example, if taking a course in Spring B or Second Session, the waiver is still due on the same deadline date as classes taken full term. Per policy, waivers submitted after this date will be rejected.

It is the employee's responsibility to submit their waiver. If you have a past due balance on your account, the waiver will not be processed. To learn more about the tuition waiver program, click "More On This Announcement" below.

Your publishable data can become more and more irrelevant every semester it is not written up. If you have trouble finding the time to sit and write those pesky results, this PLC is for you.

We will have meetings every other Tuesday beginning Jan. 21, during which we will cover the full process from data to publication. You will be supported by an interdisciplinary group of faculty who are struggling through this process just like you are. In this PLC, you will find a good journal, clean your data, run the analyses, create relevant figures and/or tables, interpret the results, write a draft and submit for publication.
