 Tuition Waiver Information & Tuition Rebate Form

Once payroll receives notification of a taxable tuition rebate, the amount of the tuition rebate is divided and applied to the remaining pays in the term. The additional tax amount is determined by the calculation of the employee’s exemption status and pre-tax deductions. There is not a flat rate used for calculation. It is important that the tuition rebate form be completed before the term begins so that it can be spread out over the entire term.

  • Spring & Fall Term:  Monthly would be 4 pays; Biweekly would be 9 pays
  • Summer Term:  Monthly would be 3 pays; Biweekly would be 6 pays
