CU faculty and staff can now apply for Tuition Assistance for the summer 2019 semester.

CU employees often take advantage of the Tuition Assistance Benefit by taking a summer class to expand their learning. Dependents who are looking to get ahead in the school year also cover their classes with this benefit through the Intercampus Dependent Tuition Assistance Benefit Pilot Program.

Qualified employees can save on up to nine credits, and their children, spouses and other dependents have several options to save on tuition costs.

Employees must submit the application on behalf of their dependent. Submit the Tuition Assistance Benefit application by the deadline for the campus they will attend classes at:

CU Boulder – Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019

CU Colorado Springs – Tuesday, June 18, 2019

CU Denver/Anschutz – Summer deadline: Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Get started:

  1. Log into the employee portal.
  2. Open the CU Resources dropdown menu at the top center of the page and select
  3. Click the Career Advancement tile, then click the Tuition Assistance Application

See full policies, deadlines and instructions on the Tuition Assistance Benefit.

Taxation

By law, some uses of the Tuition Assistance Benefit are taxed. Taxable tuition assistance will be subject to federal, state, and FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes. Taxable employees can expect these taxes to be deducted from their paychecks one to two months after their CU campus of registration’s census deadline.

Employee Services will notify taxable employees via email each semester. Learn more about the general taxation process by viewing our webinar on the Tuition Assistance Benefit Taxes website.
