Applications for Tuition Reduction are due prior to the first day of each semester. Applications are not allowed once the semester begins. Tuition must be paid in full (including any credits that may be applied) by the tuition due date or classes will be dropped.

To use this benefit, eligible employees must fill-out the Tuition Reduction Agreement Form, available through the Human Resources department. Follow the directions on that page to submit your form.
