Employee Tuition Waiver Benefit

As a leader in education, we value strong, curious minds and continued growth – not just for our students, but for our dedicated workforce as well.

That's why we provide qualified employees and dependents with tuition waiver assistance for up to 9 credit hours per aid year and offer dependents of CU Boulder employees a 20 percent discount (30 percent starting in Fall 2017).
