Benefit Eligible Employees
All benefit eligible employees who work at least 1,000 hours per year; faculty, administration, staff, union and nonunion employees, may enroll in up to two classes per semester on a space available basis. No more than one class may be taken during the employee's normal working hours.
Check out the Registrar's site for general information, instructions, and the formal application.
Spouses or Domestic Partners
Spouses or domestic partners (who meet eligibility requirements) of benefit eligible employees who work at least 1,000 hours per year may take up to two classes per semester on a space available basis. Those who are admitted to regular degree candidacy may take more than two courses without charge. To enroll as a spouse, visit the Registrar's Office to sign up for your selected class(es) and obtain enrollment permission. Bring the form to Human Resources for verification and signatures.
If a benefit eligible employee who works at least 1,000 hours per year has children, the children are eligible for full tuition waivers at Kenyon. This applies to part time or full time students, who may be degree candidates at Kenyon. Students desiring to matriculate at Kenyon must meet normal requirements for admission. The following eligibility conditions must also be met: a) the child must be the employee's legal dependent for income tax purposes and b) be the employee's biological or legally adopted child, or the child of the employee's spouse or domestic partner (in which case the child must have lived in the employee's household during the four years prior to the child's enrollment date at Kenyon). Questions about eligibility of a child will be decided by the Controller who reserves the right to request income tax documents, canceled support checks, or other evidence of eligibility.
GLCA Tuition Exchange
Children of benefit eligible employees who work at least 1,000 hours per year may participate in the GLCA Tuition Exchange, if they are eligible for full tuition waivers at Kenyon. Employees themselves, their spouses or domestic partners are not eligible for the Exchange. For further details on this benefit please contact the Controller.
All benefits described here also extend to retired members of the administration or staff who have worked full-time for the College for at least ten years. Conditions of eligibility are the same as for other employees and their dependents except that, in the case of deceased employees, eligibility conditions for dependents must have been met at the time of the employee's death.
