Faculty and staff applications for tuition remission will only be accepted via online forms and can be accessed through the HR website at www.up.edu/hr/, according to HR director Bryn Sopko. The HR office will no longer accept paper forms. In addition to this easier access, HR has updated the application dates for remission to match the deadline in student accounts, so please keep these dates in mind:
- Spring term: November 15
- Summer term: April 5
- Fall term: July 1.
Since the April 5 deadline for summer tuition has passed, please submit remission forms as soon as possible.
Please also note that there are separate tuition remission application forms for undergraduate and graduate course work, and that any graduate level tuition remission benefits will be taxable to the employee on the value above $5,250 for attempted credits and subject to applicable withholdings, and will be reflected on the W-2 form of the tax year the remission was applied. A summary on tuition remission and links to the online forms are available at http://tinyurl.com/c8f6j2x.
