Tuition Benefits

Tuition Remission and Tuition Exchange

The University offers academic benefits in the form of Tuition Remission to all full-time, non-temporary employees, their spouses, and their dependent children, providing they meet the admission requirements of the University. Certain part-time employees are eligible for this benefit.

Employee's dependents who wish to study at another college or university should investigate the Tuition Exchange program. However, the University cannot guarantee acceptance of all applicants into the tuition exchange program. Details may be obtained by visiting The Tuition Exchange and the Council of Independent Colleges Program or contacting the Office of Financial Aid. These programs are limited to full-time undergraduate students.

Audit – Professional Development Program

The University offers an Audit – Professional Development program for full-time employees. This training and professional development opportunity permits class enrollment with no fees. The Audit – Professional Development form must be completed, appropriate supervisor and Vice President approvals obtained, and returned to the Benefits Office by the deadline dates on the form. Generally, the deadlines are established one week prior to the start of classes each semester. Enrollment for the class is completed via the School of Leadership. Participation may be limited. Employees will not receive grades or credits associated with classes completed using this program. Books that may be purchased by the department will remain the property of the University at the conclusion of the class.

Full details on these programs can be found in The Administrative Policy #13.
