IU Employee Tuition Benefits

What is the IU Tuition Benefit?

Employee or IU Retiree

The IU Tuition Benefit is a subsidy of covered tuition up to a benefit dollar maximum per semester based on the Indiana resident per-credit-hour rates at each campus, and in the case of some employees/retirees, on class standing (undergraduate, graduate, or professional). The actual benefit amount applied will be based on the number of credit hours per semester.

Spouse or Domestic Partner

The IU Tuition Benefit for a covered spouse or domestic partner is a subsidy of covered tuition up to a benefit dollar maximum per semester based on the Indiana resident per-credit-hour rates at each campus. The actual benefit amount applied will be based on the number of credit hours per semester.

Dependent Children

The IU Tuition Benefit value is a subsidy of 50% of the Indiana resident undergraduate rate, up to the completion of a bachelor’s degree or up to a maximum of 140 credit hours of IU Tuition Benefit awards as long as they meet the dependent child requirements as listed in the policy.

  • Tuition Benefit is not a cash award; rather, it is an employee benefit that pays a portion of the tuition credit-hour fees, and in some cases, audit fees.
  • Tuition Benefit for the dependent child does not apply to audit hours.
  • Tuition Benefit does not apply to special fees, such as those for music performance studies, student teaching, laboratories, early education experience, dissertation advanced research (G901, B798, G831, or equivalent), rental of special equipment or facilities, and fees for non-credit courses.
  • Tuition Benefit does not apply to mandatory student fees, such as student technology, activity, or athletic fees.
  • A Tuition Benefit application needs to be submitted each academic year.  Once eligibility is verified, the Tuition Benefit award is credited to the student's bursar account.
  • Tuition Benefit awards are reduced or canceled if the student or employee's eligibility ceases.
  • Any changes in the student's enrollment may also result in changes to the amount of Tuition Benefit. The Office of the Bursar will then bill the student for applicable fees.
  • ·         Tuition Benefit for graduate level courses as well as courses taken by Domestic Partners are treated as taxable income. In accordance with IRS regulations, these taxes will be withheld from the employee's pay. The employee's pay notice will include reference to the amount of Tuition Benefit included as taxable income.
  • Covered individuals are responsible for all tuition costs over the benefit maximums and excluded fees

Additional plan details and benefit amounts can be found on the IU Human Resources Tuition webpage.
