The CU Denver | Anschutz campus recently revised its tuition benefit policy to allow employees’ dependents to enroll in courses during the standard registration period, instead of waiting until the first day of classes.
“We’re happy to be able to strengthen the dependent benefit for our employees, who are our greatest resource,” said CU Anschutz Chancellor Don Elliman.
This change standardizes dependent enrollment on all University of Colorado campuses. It will be implemented as part of a three-year pilot study launching in the fall.
“We’re grateful to our administration and finance team for working out the details so that we can improve this benefit,” said CU Denver Chancellor Dorothy Horrell.
Initial details of the pilot were announced in January. The pilot program was advanced by a task force at the direction of President Bruce Benson and led by chair Susan Szpyrka, senior vice chancellor for administration and finance at UCCS. It was recently was presented to President Benson and all campus chancellors, who approved the implementation.
The full design and procedures of the pilot will be published on the Employee Services Tuition Benefit webpage.
