Westchester Community College Free Courses: Per our contract, printed page 27, CSEA members may take credit courses at Westchester Community College (WCC) free of charge. Student must pay all fees such as Admission, FSA, Cultural Art, Equipment, Change of Schedule, Lab, Application, and Assessment Test fees. Books Are Not Free.

How to Get this Benefit: Get a Tuition Waiver Form by visiting the CSEA Union Office at 112 E. Post Rd, White Plains, with your County ID card in person. Some large work locations have CSEA Shop Stewards who have a limited supply of Tuition Waiver Forms that must be signed in person by the CSEA member. Waiver Forms cannot be mailed out to the CSEA member. Then register for classes at WCC and give the Bursar Office the Waiver Form to “pay” the tuition for your courses.

Spring Semester Waivers are available after November 1 each year for WCC courses.
Summer Semester Waivers are available after April 1 each year for WCC courses
Fall Semester Waivers are available after July 1 each year for WCC courses.
