TUITION CREDIT VOUCHER POLICY AND PROCEDURE
POLICY:
Tuition credit vouchers are issued to facilities in appreciation for their personnel supervising students on a clinical
experience. Vouchers may be used by any employee of the facility. The Tuition Credit Voucher must be requested
within one year from the date that the student completes his or her clinical rotation at the facility. A voucher is issued
for each student experience and the credits are variable dependent on the level of the student experience. Vouchers
are issued for a period of one year. No voucher is redeemable for any purpose other than tuition costs. All
associated fees (registration fee, etc.) and any difference between the actual cost of the course and the value of the
voucher must be borne by the person utilizing the voucher. Receipt and use of tuition credit vouchers may have tax
implications. Tax reporting is the responsibility of the agency receiving the voucher(s). Facilities are responsible for
the Tuition Credit Vouchers. All information must be accurate or tuition costs will not be covered. Sargent College is
not responsible for the replacement of lost or stolen vouchers.
COURSES:
Vouchers may be used for credit-bearing courses (on-campus or on-line) that are offered at any of the Boston
University schools or colleges included below and are listed with Boston University’s Office of the University
Registrar. Please note that some courses are restricted to degree candidates and/or have required
pre-requisites. A listing of courses offered can be found on the University’s web site at
http://www.bu.edu/academics. No full-time matriculated Boston University student can use vouchers nor can
vouchers be used by the student for whose clinical experience they were issued.
ONLINE POST-PROFESSIONAL DOCTOR OF OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY (OTD)
Tuition credit vouchers can be used for online classes in the Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD)
program. Vouchers can be used by students enrolled in an online degree program or in non-degree courses. For
those students using vouchers as part of a degree program, the following rules apply:
 Vouchers cannot be used for the first course in the program
 One voucher equals one online course
 Vouchers can be used for a maximum of 6 credits per student per online program
 Vouchers can be used for one course per one 14-week semester
 Vouchers are issued for a period of three years and expire after that time
For questions about using on-line vouchers in the OTD Program, please contact Karen Jacobs, OTD Program Director, at
[email protected]
REQUESTING VOUCHERS:
Requests for tuition credit vouchers should be emailed to the Clinical Education Services Office at [email protected]
The request must include the following information: the name of the facility, the number of credits in the requested
course, and the semester in which the class will be taken. If you do not have access to email, you can reach the CES
Office at 617-353-7545 or 617-353-9731. These requests can take up to one week to process. All vouchers are
required to be signed by the facility’s Department Head or Center Coordinator for Clinical Education (CCCE), and are
mailed to that person at the address we have in our files. If they are to be mailed to a different address, this should be
noted in the email request.
REGISTRATION:
Registration for courses should be coordinated with the college at which the course is being offered and will be
dependent on space, availability, and any other restrictions. Please note that it is the responsibility of the person
using the voucher to contact the school where the course is offered in order to check on availability and restrictions,
prior to registration. Information on the prerequisites, availability of a course and when a course is scheduled can be
found by accessing http://www.bu.edu/reg/academics/ .
REDEEMING YOUR VOUCHER:
When redeeming your voucher, please follow these instructions:
1. Vouchers, which are issued in the name of the Facility or Agency, must be completed and then signed by the
Center Coordinator for Clinical Education (CCCE) as Agency Head or by the facility’s Department Head.
2. Prior to registering for a specific course, contact the School/College where the course is being offered and
check on availability and any restrictions that may apply.
3. IMPORTANT! You must bring or send the voucher to SARGENT COLLEGE, ACADEMIC SERVICES CENTER

4. Even if you have already registered at the BU Registrar’s Office, YOU MUST STILL BRING OR SEND THE
SIGNED VOUCHER TO SARGENT COLLEGE, ACADEMIC SERVICES CENTER, ROOM 207 for it to be
