To provide accessible educational opportunities to faculty, staff and their families, the University of Colorado’s Tuition Waiver Benefit grants waived or discounted college credit hours to CU employees or their eligible dependents for credit-bearing graduate or undergraduate courses.
While CU employees can attend any campus and waive up to nine credit hours every academic year, the tuition discount for dependents can be used in two different ways: Option A (Home Campus) or Option B (Other Campus).
For dependents who choose to attend the campus the employee is employed by (option A), the tuition waiver can cover up to nine credit hours an academic year (at CU Denver, CU Anschutz and UCCS) or 30 percent of tuition for dependents of CU Boulder employees.
For dependents who choose to attend a campus an employee is not employed by (option B), a maximum of $270 per credit hour on up to nine credits may be waived. To learn more about these options, click here.
Note: Before a dependent can use the tuition waiver, the employee must waive their benefit. The benefit applies only to the cost of credit hours. Employees and dependents are responsible for all non-waived tuition, additional campus fees and taxes.
Tuition Waiver Benefit forms for the upcoming spring semester are now being accepted by Employee Services through the campus portal. Because the form is submitted through the portal, employees must submit the form on their dependents’ behalf.
