Make room to grow: Apply now for the Spring 2023 Tuition Assistance Benefit

Application window open for all four campuses
By Staff

Education is an opportunity for personal and professional growth, which is why the University of Colorado offers the Tuition Assistance Benefit (TAB). The Spring 2023 application window is now open for all four CU campuses.

This CU benefit reduces the overall cost of pursuing higher education.

Eligible CU faculty and staff can save on up to nine credits per academic year (fall through summer) on any CU campus. Dependent assistance options vary based on the employee’s home campus and the campus which the dependent attends.

Employees who already have used the benefit for themselves or a dependent this fall should remember that once TAB is applied to one individual’s courses, it can only be used by that person for the remainder of the academic year. 

Before you apply for TAB or enroll in courses

It’s important to understand usage rules before you enroll in courses or apply for tuition assistance.

Eligible employees can register up to seven days in advance for undergraduate and graduate courses; be sure to follow your campus semester or first day of class start date before you enroll in courses. To verify registration dates, visit the Tuition Assistance benefit webpage, under How to apply select the campus you’re attending and click Register for your courses to view the campus registration dates.

Dependents using the TAB can register for courses during the normal designated registration period.

Review the on-demand course, policies and campus deadlines on the Tuition Assistance Benefit webpage for program rules and Spring 2023 deadlines by campus.
