Faculty and staff applications for tuition remission will only be accepted via online forms and can be accessed through the human resources website at www.up.edu/hr/, according to Bryn Sopko, human resources. The HR office will no longer accept paper forms. In addition to easier access, HR has updated the application dates for remission to match deadlines in student accounts, so please keep these dates in mind:
- Spring term: November 15
- Summer term: April 5
- Fall term: July 1.
Please 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. For more information contact human resources at 7461 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
