I understand that:
If the registrant is taking 75% of a full time curriculum per semester, s/he will be billed for student health insurance unless s/he goes to www.universityhealthplans.com and waives the insurance.
This Tuition Remission Course Application is not an admission or registration form. The Registrant must check with the appropriate admissions or registrar’s office for required approvals.
Tuition remission covers tuition, student activity, studio, laboratory and computer usage fees. All other fees are the student’s responsibility.
New dependent students must pay the deposit fee in order to register for classes.
Tuition paid by an outside party directly to the University on behalf of a Registrant will be applied first to the registrant’s tuition account. The tuition remission benefit will then be applied.
Full-time Tuition Remission recipients are not eligible for University scholarships, grants, fellowships, or any other institutional financial aid. Part-time recipients are handled on a case-by-case basis. Contact the appropriate financial aid office for more information.
Tuition remission may reduce other financial aid benefits. Contact the appropriate financial aid office for more information.
A Registrant who receives benefits from federal or state programs (e.g., Pell, Yellow Ribbon, VA) will have those benefits applied first to the Registrant’s tuition account, followed by tuition remission benefits and finally by loans. Consult with the Bursar/Student Accounts Office about the program specifics and its impact.
The value of undergraduate tuition for employee, dependent child, or spouse is not taxed. Undergraduate tuition for a domestic partner or non-dependent child is subject to federal and state income tax.
The value of graduate tuition in excess of $5,250/calendar year for an employee is subject to federal and state income tax. The value of all graduate tuition for dependent child, non-dependent child, spouse, or domestic partner is taxable. This taxable tuition benefit will show as a separate amount on your pay slip and impact your taxes withheld (thereby reducing your net pay). It will be spread across the number of pay periods in the semester to which the benefit relates. (Based on your tax situation, you can adjust your withholdings as you deem appropriate via Workday.)
Employees who terminate during the first two weeks of the academic term you will not qualify for tuition remission. To avoid a tuition bill, the registrant should withdraw from all classes. Employees who terminate after the first two weeks of the term will receive a prorated benefit and will be billed for the remainder of the tuition balance.
A dependent child is defined as a son, stepson, daughter, stepdaughter, child of a domestic partner or a spouse, legally adopted child or child who was placed by an authorized placement agency for legal adoption and is claimed by the employee as an exemption on the federal tax form filed for the year before benefits begin. For purposes of the tuition remission benefit, a dependent child of divorced parents is treated as a dependent child of both parents. A child enrolled in a program as a dependent may continue that program beyond dependency provided that all course work is complete within 5 years of its beginning. In processing these benefits, the Human Resources Office reserves the right to request a copy of the pertinent federal tax form.
