UNM is encouraging staff to take advantage of their tuition remission. Staff Council is offering to waive application fees to those who sign up at the annual “Staff as Students” event.

"Staff as Students is a great opportunity for UNM employees to learn how to use their Tuition Remission Benefit,” said Ryan Gregg, UNM staff councilor. “They can further their education by taking academic or professional development courses at the university.”

At the event, staff get priority registration. They also can ask questions of advisors about requirements. This year the event will be held in the Center for Student Success at Travelstead Hall on Monday, April 9 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The event includes representatives from the Office of Admissions, Bursar’s Office, Office of the Registrar, the Center for Academic Program Support, Continuing Education, Employee & Organizational Development, Children’s Campus, the Office of Graduate Studies and more. Advisors from different schools, colleges, programs and departments will also be in attendance.
