Field Work Waiver

Applies to: Lawrence Campus students

Purpose: Waives Lawrence campus fees for qualified applicants. (Area fees for off-campus courses do not qualify for a fee waiver.)

Frequency: This form must be turned in every semester and received by the Office of the University Registrar by the following deadline: 30 days after the first day of classes for the semester you are applying.


Students must be enrolled only in course work taught by appointment and must reside and complete all academic work outside the area served by the Lawrence, KS postal service offices for the semester that they are applying for the Field Work waiver. A student must not be employed on campus or applying for staff reduction rates.


A student must be enrolled and must submit a Field Work waiver form to the Office of the University Registrar by the 30th calendar day after the first day of classes for each semester. Once the deadline for a semester has passed, that semester will no longer be available on the form. 

A student must list a non-Lawrence, KS address as his/her current address on the student record database system before a form can be submitted and a waiver can be approved for that semester. The “Jayhawk” address is the current address in the Enroll and Pay system.

  • Students enrolled in both a lecture course and a course by appointment for the same semester do not qualify for the Field Work waiver.
  • Regularly scheduled off-campus credit courses do not qualify for the Field Work waiver.
