Tuition Assistance Programs

Tuition Assistance Programs

Wayne State University provides the following types of tuition benefits:

Benefit pays 100% of the cost of tuition, regular registration fee, omnibus fee, and fitness center fee for eligible employees.  

Benefit pays 50% of the cost of tuition only for an eligible spouse/child of an eligible employee.

Benefit pays 25% of the cost of tuition only for an eligible spouse/child of an eligible UPTF member.

Tuition Assistance Applications

For Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer terms, tuition benefit applications are due two weeks after the Last Day for Tuition Cancellation. For Spring only or Summer only terms, you have one week after the Last Day for Tuition Cancellation to submit your application. This is a deadline which will be firmly administered so the Payroll office can spread out any tax liability over more pay periods for that term. Students are responsible for any late fees that may be assessed.

TUITION EXCHANGE SCHOLARSHIPS

Additionally, Tuition Exchange Scholarships are available for Employee Dependents. The Tuition Exchange Organization is a nonprofit consortium of more than 600 colleges and universities that provides its members the opportunity to exchange tuition scholarships for the benefit of their employee dependents. As a member of the Tuition Exchange (TE), Wayne State University invites eligible employees to apply for this tuition scholarship program should they have dependent children interested in attending another TE institution as an undergraduate degree-seeking student.   A list of the colleges and universities that are members of the TE program can be viewed at www.tuitionexchange.org . Visit the Tuition Exchange Scholarships web page for more information.
