To determine whether you are an eligible employee, please see Policy 350. Eligible Employees taking classes, both undergraduate and graduate, will need to complete the paper Application for Tuition Reduction Form with the supervisor’s signature every semester. By signing the form, the eligible employee is acknowledging that they understand some or all of the tuition reduction benefits may be taxable as wages to the eligible employee.  If the employee who is taking classes wishes to opt out of student fees, the Student Fee Waiver Form must also be completed for each semester.

Retired Employee or the Spouse/Eligible Child of a Retired Employee

If you are a retired employee or the spouse/eligible child of a retired employee, the automatic program will not work and you will still need to fill out the Application for Tuition Reduction Form and submit it to the Human Resources Department every semester.
