Employer Tuition Reimbursement

If your employer has a tuition reimbursement plan that pays all or part of your tuition, you can defer all or part of the tuition until the end of the semester. Requires written verification at the time of registration. Contact your supervisor or personnel / human resources department at your place of employment to determine if a tuition reimbursement plan is available. Note: Not available during the summer.

If your employer agrees to pay all or part of your tuition, submit the following items prior to registering:

  1. Company's tuition reimbursement policy
  2. Company's written statement agreeing to pay all or part of the tuition charges
  3. Intent to Pay form

Payment is due by the following dates:

  • Fall Semester: Due Date: January 15
  • Spring Semester: Due Date: June 8
  • Summer: Not Available

The student must remit payment by the due date, whether (s)he has been reimbursed by the employer. If payment is not received by the due date, a late payment fee of at least $50 or 5% of the outstanding balance will be assessed on the past due account balance. In addition, a hold will be placed on the student's account, which will prohibit the student from registering for other courses, attending classes, or accessing a transcript. Students that do not remit payment by the due date may not be eligible for the deferred payment option in the future.
