After 6 months of continuous, full-time employment, eligible FVSU employees may qualify for a waiver of tuition and fees when attending a USG institution. To apply for this benefit, employees must submit the TAP application to the Office of Human Resources. Applications deadlines are 4/15, 7/15 and 11/15. All applications must be received prior to enrollment in classes in a subsequent term. For more information about the TAP program, visit the USG website.
