Assign a State Employee Waiver

Purpose:  Use the below equation variable instructions to assign the W51 State Employee Waiver to qualified students in ctcLink.

Audience:  Student Financials Administrators, Registration & Records Administrators, and those working with tuition waivers.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZC SF Tuition and Fees
  • ZD SF Processing Inquiry
  • ZD SF Tuition and Fees
  • ZZ SF Processing Inquiry
  • ZZ SF Tuition and Fees

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

When working with auto-assigned waivers, it is important to ensure that the criteria is met for each student to receive this waiver. If you utilize the student group, make sure the student is assigned to the student group and has an effective date that is prior to the start of the term for which you are assigning the waiver. For waivers assigned via the equation variable method, add the W51 equation variable for the specific term the student is to receive the waiver.
