Tuition Remission Benefits

Employee Tuition Remission

Subject to certain restrictions, tuition remission is available to eligible employees and retirees. Tuition remission benefits for spouses/dependent children of employees hired after July 1, 1992, will be available after the employee has worked for two years prior to the anticipated date of registration for coursework.

In some instances, the value of the tuition remission benefit received may be considered taxable income to the employee.  Please review the Tax Information Tool to see how your benefit is impacted.

More information outlining this benefit is available in the USM Tuition Remission Portal or with the Human Resources Office.
