Full time employees of the State of Tennessee and those whose paychecks are issued by the Tennessee Board of Regents and the University of Tennessee qualify to use a fee waiver at Tennessee’s public institutions of higher education for one class per semester or term. TFLI is among the schools that accept fee waivers. Read more about the State of TN fee waiver definitions and eligibility here. For information regarding classes for state agency employees, view our flyer here.
To enroll in a foreign language class using a state fee waiver, your registration must be processed offline by doing the following:
1) Go to our secure registration site to create an account for yourself using your correct email address so you will receive any subsequent correspondence regarding your class. Again, you cannot enroll for your class on the website, just register your name and contact information.
3) Browse the online catalog by choosing the correct “Program” and then searching by language or day for the class you wish to take. Then enter the class information for your first and second choice class on your registration form.
4) You can fax, mail, e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or bring in both your registration form and State of Tennessee employee fee waiver form signed by your supervisor. We must receive BOTH forms by the registration deadline for you to be officially registered. We will contact you to confirm that we’ve received your forms. Keep in mind that classes must have at least five students paying tuition before a fee waiver may join. Classes without adequate enrollment are subject to closure or cancellation. If a class reaches capacity and is closed to further enrollment or is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, we will notify you with alternative class options. See our refund policy for other helpful information. Please make sure to write legibly.
