Association of Secretarial & Clerical Employees Educational Opportunities
Completion of courses, whether or not you are enrolled in a degree program, will help you achieve and enhance your professional and personal skill sets. There are multiple ways MTSU offers educational assistance to employees.

This program permits full-time employees (faculty, administrators/professional, and support staff) to take one credit course per term, course maximum of four hours; at MTSU or a public Tennessee institution, while continuing work responsibilities at this University. Auditing a course is allowed provided it is a credit course. A fee waiver must be completed for each term enrolled. Employees will be responsible for paying special course fees and book fees, as well as, the application fee.
Senior Adult Discount
Persons 60 years of age or older may audit classes without tuition charges. Persons 65 years of age or older may register for classes for credit by paying a service fee not to exceed $70.00. This may be beneficial for students who wish to complete more than one class at a time. The student is responsible for paying for material, online, distance education, specialized course fees, study abroad fees, flight training fees and book fees, as well as, the application fee.
