Study Privileges for U.P. Personnel and Dependents

  1. All full-time university personnel shall be entitled to 100% waiver of tuition and miscellaneous fees (except student fund fees) in any U.P. college or unit. This applies to full-time personnel—permanent or temporary, regular incumbents or substitutes, casual or contractual, including project personnel, regardless of the source of funds for their salaries as long as the funds either belong to the regular budget of the University or are institutional grants to the University, provided only that their appointments issued by the University are at least coextensive with the semester or term.
  2. All regular part-time faculty (with at least 1 year of continuous service) shall be entitled to 100% waiver of tuition and miscellaneous fees (except student fund fees) in any U.P. college or unit provided the field of study is one of the academic thrusts of the faculty member’s home department or college. This applies to all part-time faculty—permanent or temporary, regular incumbents, or substitutes.
