Work-Related (JOB) Option

(Previously titled "Job-Related/Career Advancement Option". Use when taking classes intermittently. Submit two forms--fee waiver app and admissions app--each term.)

Employees may take courses specifically to improve their job performance or for the attainment or enhancement of skills for the purpose of career advancement within the CSU system. These employees are not matriculated students and are not registered through Open University. However, classes are taken for credit and will be posted on the student's official transcript. Depending on operational needs and the CBA, the supervisor may approve one (1) class to be taken on State time.

Steps to Complete Each Term

  • Submit a Fee Waiver Application for Employees (opens in new window)through Adobe Sign.
    • This form has sections to be completed by both the employee and the employee's supervisor.
  • Submit an Admissions Application for Work-Related(JOB) Fee Waivers through Adobe Sign. This will admit you as a transitory student by the University
  • HR will forward both applications to the appropriate admissions office. Work-Related(JOB) fee waiver employees do not have to meet Graduate Admissions requirements and do not need to submit transcripts or proof of a bachelor's degree.
  • Receive an email (from Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Studies) confirming you have been accepted as a student under the Work-Related program. This is your invitation to enroll in courses.
  • Pay fees at Student Financial Services Center (SSC), room 230. Tell them you are participating in the employee fee Waiver program so they can code the payment properly.
