Apply now for summer Tuition Assistance Benefit

Savings of up to nine credit hours available
By Staff

Faculty and staff who want to save money on their or their dependent’s summer tuition bill may begin submitting the Tuition Benefit Application through the employee portal. If a dependent will be using the benefit, the CU employee must submit the form on their behalf. 

Learn how to access and submit it here, then review application deadlines for each campus below.

CU’s tuition benefit provides eligible employees with tuition waiver assistance for up to nine credit hours per academic year.

Dependents have two options: attending a CU employee’s home campus and receiving nine waived credit hours or attending a different CU campus and receiving a tuition waiver of $270 per credit hour, up to nine hours. Dependents of CU Boulder employees receive a 30 percent tuition discount when attending CU Boulder.

An employee must waive their benefit for the academic year if they wish to give it to their eligible dependent to use, and dependents must be verified.

Note: Tuition Assistance Benefit applies only to the cost of credit hours. Employees and dependents are responsible for all non-waived tuition, campus student fees and taxes.
