Course Selection at Santa Fe College

This program does not permit enrollment in thesis, dissertation, internships, directed individual study, individual performance courses, non-credit courses, sponsored-credit courses, off-book programs, correspondence courses, and some distance education course offerings.

For students attending community or state colleges, the courses must be for credit and must still meet the criteria listed above. Only TEAMS employees are eligible to attend Santa Fe College or other community/state colleges, closest to their work location.

EEP courses listed on the application must match the class number, prefix, section number, etc. of the EEP course(s) you register for. If you need to change course information after application submission, a new application must be submitted and receive final director approval before 4PM on the established EEP Application Director Approval Deadline.

Participants may include alternate courses on the EEP application. The Employee Education Program will cover up to six credit hours per semester (based on your registration) from this list of your primary and alternate EEP courses.

Application deadlines for classes taken at Santa Fe College

Students enrolling at SFC should register during the regular registration period. For the 2020-21 academic year, the following application deadlines are established:

2020-21 Deadlines

Term EEP Application Director Approval Deadline
2020 Fall A, B, D, E 4 p.m. July 31, 2020
2021 Spring A, B, D, E 4 p.m. December 11, 2020
2021 Summer A/D   4 p.m. April 16, 2021
2021 Summer B   4 p.m. June 15, 2021

NOTE: Late registration, late director approvals, or failure to pay student responsibility portion of fees before the Santa Fe College fee deadline could result in dropped courses/denial due to non-payment.

Summer semester registrations occurring during summer, (A, D or B) are considered a single semester for purposes of EEP program coverage. If one registers for a combination of Summer, Summer A, D or B, a maximum of (6) credit hours will be covered by the EEP.

After submitting your application, verify receipt of confirmation emails. Based on the participant’s supervisory reporting structure, participants will receive confirmation emails for their manager’s approval, “Your EEP Application Manager Approved” and director’s approval, “Your EEP Application Director Approved” from OnBase-noreply@ufl.edu. The director approval confirmation email verifies the Santa Fe College Cashier has received your EEP funding request. If you do not receive a confirmation after your manager/director approves your application, you must contact eep@admin.ufl.edu for assistance.

Late Registration at Santa Fe College

NOTE: In all semesters, if you register late or submit an EEP application after the original due date up until the drop/add deadline, Santa Fe will post a “fees due by” deadline on your eSantaFe account. The EEP application must be director approved by 4:00 p.m. on the date Santa Fe requires fees to be paid, weekends and holidays are not included. You must check your eSantaFe account and with the Santa Fe College Cashier (after receiving the director approval confirmation email) to verify your fee deadline, student fee responsibility, and that EEP funds have been applied.

Late registration, late director approvals, or failure to pay student responsibility portion of fees before the Santa Fe College fee deadline could result in dropped courses/denial due to non-payment.

Grade Submission

Grade submission is a continued eligibility requirement.

Please see Employee Education Program Policy, Participant Responsibilities section for more information about grade performance requirements.

Courses may be subject to taxes as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. The portion of employer-provided tuition assistance that is in excess of $5,250 per year will be taxed as part of an employee’s personal income. This tax assessment is usually entered on the “third paycheck of the month” during the fall.  Remember, the third paycheck of the month has only limited deductions.  Applicable taxes (e.g. Social Security, Medicare, Federal Withholding Tax) are calculated and deducted for the tuition in excess of $5,250 and reduce the employee’s net paycheck for that pay period. Employees are responsible for any individual tax liability that may result from participation in this tuition program and should refer any tax questions to their personal tax advisor.
