Registration Procedures for Employees


Note: Registration procedures for courses in the schools of Dental Medicine, Nursing, Management, Law, Applied Social Sciences, and Medicine may differ. Contact individual schools for more information.

Step 1:


Degree seeking:

  • Undergraduate:
    If you are taking classes for the first time, apply for admission through the Office of Undergraduate Admission; upon admission, submit Enrollment Deposit Form ($300 fee is waived for employees only; dependents of employees must pay the fee). Course scheduling materials will be forwarded by the Office of Undergraduate Studies to enrolling students.
  • Graduate:
    If you are taking classes for the first time, apply for admission through the academic department and the Office of Graduate Admission.

Non-degree-seeking:


  • If you do not already have an undergraduate (baccalaureate level) degree:
    If you are taking classes for the first time, apply through the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
  • If you already have an undergraduate (baccalaureate level) degree:
    If you are taking classes for the first time, apply through the Office of Graduate Studies (even if you plan on taking undergraduate level courses).

Step 2:

Follow the instructions as posted in Registration Procedures.

Step 3:

Obtain tuition waiver from the Human Resources Office in Crawford Hall, Room 224. The employee must complete a Case Certification for Tuition Waiver each semester.

Employees have until September 30th (Fall semester), February 28th (Spring semester), and July 1st (Summer term) to apply for a waiver for themselves, their spouses, and their dependents.

Along with the completed application:

  • Employees must submit a copy of their class schedule and obtain approval from their supervisor for courses held during working hours. If taking graduate level courses that are job related, an Affidavit of Qualification for Tuition Waiver Tax Exemption must be completed.
  • Spouses must submit a copy of their class schedule*, and for first time waivers, a copy of the marriage certificate.
  • Dependents must submit a copy of their class schedule* and a copy of their parents' Federal income tax return or a completed Case Proof of Dependency form.
  • *It is important to note that it is the responsibility of the student to provide a copy of the class schedule to Benefits Administration. Class schedules will not be released to parents or spouses and will not be forwarded to Benefits Administration by the Office of the Registrar.

Step 4:

Employees eligible for health insurance under the University's Benelect program are not eligible for the student health insurance program. In order to remove the health insurance charge (which is automatically billed), a health insurance waiver must be submitted. This waiver and more information are available from University Health Services.

You will not be allowed to register if you have any outstanding financial obligations to the university.* You remain subject to all other regulations and policies applicable to students, including, but not limited to, policies and deadlines for registration and withdrawal, Case Medical Plan, tuition/fee payments and financial aid. The Case Tuition Waiver does not waive your other responsibilities.
