Gear up for spring 2024: Tuition Assistance applications are now open

Set yourself up for success this spring with the Tuition Assistance Benefit (TAB). Just like preparing for an exhilarating day at the mountain, investing in your education requires planning and the right equipment.

The University of Colorado supports all benefits-eligible employees and their dependents with tuition assistance, whether that is used for navigating a new run of courses or fine-tuning your abilities on familiar ground.

TAB eligible faculty and staff can claim up to nine credits per academic year (fall through summer) on any of CU’s four campuses. Dependent assistance options vary depending on the employee’s home campus and the campus which the dependent is attending.

Remember, once the TAB is designated to someone, only that person may use the benefit for the remainder of the academic year. New TAB recipients can be designated for the fall 2024 semester.

Applications for the spring 2024 semester opened on Dec. 1, 2023 and begin to close in late January. Refer to your specific campus below for exact deadlines.

Strap into your bindings and seize your academic adventure today. Use these helpful hints to carve out your trail to success.

Helpful hints to know before applying for tuition assistance

There are a few usage guidelines to be aware of before using the benefit.

Review campus-specific policies and deadlines on the Tuition Assistance Benefit webpage and the Tuition Assistance FAQ for benefit usage rules and spring 2024 campus deadlines.

TAB eligible employees can register for undergraduate and graduate courses up to seven days in advance. Before you enroll in courses, reference your campus semester calendar or first day of class start date to ensure you register at the right time. Verify campus-specific registration dates by visiting 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 claiming the TAB can follow the normal designated campus registration dates.
