Save money on summer tuition: Submit your Tuition Assistance Benefit application

Are you or your dependent taking classes this summer? Save money on your bill by submitting the Tuition Assistance Benefit application through the employee portal.

Learn how to access and submit the application here, then review important benefit information and campus deadlines below.

Benefit details

The Tuition Assistance Benefit provides eligible employees and their dependents with tuition waiver assistance for up to 9 credit hours per academic year.

There are two option for dependents: They can attend a CU employee's home campus and receive 9 waived credit hours or attend a different CU campus and receive a tuition waiver of $270 per credit hour, up to 9 hours. (Dependents of CU Boulder employees receive a 30 percent tuition discount when attending CU Boulder.)

NOTE: An employee must waive their benefit for the academic year if they want their verified dependent to use it. The Tuition Assistance Benefit applies only to the cost of credit hours. Employees and dependents are responsible for all non-waived tuition, campus student fees and taxes.
