Education Assistance Benefits Announces Tuition Grant Changes

Beginning academic year 2008-2009, employees continuing their participation in the Tuition Grant Plan will not have to reapply if there are no changes in the information supplied on a previous application. This new policy is effective immediately, so current participants do not have to apply for the coming academic year.

However, parents of dependent children currently participating in the program and planning to attend a different school in the fall, or to take the semester off, are asked to contact the Education Assistance Benefits Office immediately (contact information below).

Until the EAB Office hears from the parents, dependent children with continuing eligibility will be considered registered participants for the following year. The parents of these children can expect to receive (at their home address) the Tuition Grant Consecutive Year Participation letter, which includes the student information, policy/program changes and procedural information that will be shared with the college/university of record.

Employees new to the Tuition Grant program will be required to complete the 2008-2009 tuition grant plan application and complete a subsequent year's application only when the information supplied on the application has changed. The applications will be available later this month.

Effective academic year 2008-2009, dependent children will not be eligible to participate in the program during any semester of the calendar year in which they turn 24.

The Tuition Grant, Tuition Remission and new Tuition Reimbursement Plan for Undergraduate Studies are among the education plans offered by the university's Education Assistance Program. Employees can learn more about the plans in a round of information scheduled in coming weeks. Current policies and procedures as well as program changes will be discussed.
