Article 49 of the current agreement between the State of New York and United University Professions provides for a tuition waiver for one course per semester on a "space available" basis.
In order to qualify for this UUP tuition waiver, you must meet all the following requirements:
To qualify for a UUP tuition waiver, you must be employed by a participating SUNY school and be represented by the UUP Bargaining Unit during the semester in which you wish to receive a UUP tuition waiver for a class.
Summer waivers: Employees seeking to apply for a summer UUP waiver must be employed by a participating SUNY school and be represented by the UUP Bargaining Unit in the summer or have a Fall appointment that succeeds the summer session.
Winter waivers: Employees seeking to apply for a winter UUP waiver must be employed by a participating SUNY school and be represented by the UUP Bargaining Unit in the winter or have a Spring appointment that succeeds the winter session.
If you are employed at another college or university, you must provide written certification from your college or university's Human Resource Office verifying representation by the UUP bargaining unit for the semester. The certification must include your first name, last name, the last four digits of your Social Security number, and your employment status for the semester in which the waiver is to be applied. This verification must be uploaded when submitting the UUP Tuition Waiver Request Form.
To qualify for a UUP tuition waiver, you must be admitted to a program. Before registering for classes, employees must be admitted to a program (degree or non-degree, graduate or undergraduate). The appropriate admissions offices are:
To qualify for a UUP tuition waiver, you must register during the appropriate time period, according to the UUP registration dates listed below.
UUP registration begins two days before the first day of classes for each term/session/semester. If you register for a class prior to the published dates and your class fills to capacity, your waiver request will be denied, and you will be liable for the full amount of tuition for the class.
The only exception to this rule is when a student uses a Permission Number to register for a class. If you are using a Permission Number to register, you may register for the class at any time. Please include the Permission Number in your UUP Tuition Waiver Request Form.

All students requesting a UUP tuition waiver need to complete and submit UAlbany’s UUP Tuition Waiver Request Form.
This form must be submitted by 11:59 pm on the last class day of the semester (not the last day of finals) the waiver is being applied. We encourage you to submit this form early to avoid tuition liability. Note: Forms will not be reviewed before the first day of the semester.
The UUP waiver submission deadlines are:
Summer 2022: Friday, August 12, 2022
Fall 2022: Monday, December 5, 2022
Winter 2023: Friday, January 13, 2023
Spring 2023: Tuesday, May 2, 2023
Waivers submitted after the deadline, including those submitted for previous semesters, will not be accepted. Failure to submit the waiver request by the deadline will result in full tuition liability for the course. No exceptions will be made.
The UUP tuition waiver only waives the tuition for one class per semester. You will be responsible for all additional fees related to enrollment in the class. You may pay the remaining balance on E-Pay.
You may see a UUP waiver added to your bill as “anticipated aid.” This means that aid is anticipated to be added to your account. It does not indicate that your waiver has been approved.
If you receive a bill before your UUP waiver has been approved, you may see the cost of tuition on your bill. You may deduct the amount of tuition from the bill and pay the remaining balance of fees.
Please pay your bill by the bill’s due date to avoid incurring late fees. Continue to check your E-Pay account in case your waiver is denied, as you will be liable for the full cost of tuition.
