To encourage educational growth among employees receiving college-approved full benefits (i.e. health, life, and retirement), and their dependents, an award equivalent to the value of six in-state college credit hours per term is available to eligible employees, their spouses and dependents, and to retirees who were employees receiving college-approved full benefits.
Legal dependents are those as defined by IRS standards. The employee must certify his/her spouse and all eligible dependents by completing an Employee Tuition Benefit Course Request card to the Financial Aid Office. Spouses and dependents of eligible employees must enroll in college credit, vocational credit, or college preparatory courses to qualify for this benefit. Spouses and dependents of retirees are not eligible for this benefit.
A minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 grading scale is required in order to receive the tuition benefit. The benefit does not cover book or supply costs, or courses that are repeated that were previously charged against the Employee Tuition Benefit.
