Exclusions Covered tuition includes the per-credit-hour tuition rate charged to a student, excluding 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. Mandatory student fees, such as student technology, activity, or athletic fees are not considered tuition and are not covered under this plan. Covered individuals are responsible for all tuition costs over the benefit maximum and excluded fees.

Registration for courses during work hours – Employees who wish to enroll in University classes scheduled during normal work hours must obtain advance approval from the associated Department Head. See the applicable Training and Education personnel policy for provisions about covering time away from the job.

Attending Multiple Campuses – Covered Individuals who attend multiple campuses will need to complete a tuition benefit application for each campus of attendance. 

Dependent Children: For each campus that the dependent child is attending and has completed the tuition benefit application, they will receive the tuition benefit 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.

Employees/Retirees and Spouses: Only one IU Tuition Benefit subsidy will be applied each semester.  The subsidy amount, however, can be split over multiple campuses.  Since the Tuition Benefit is a subsidy of covered tuition up to a benefit dollar maximum per semester, the highest maximum between the campuses attended is used as the maximum subsidy amount for that semester.  (Example:  Campus A has a maximum benefit of $1,500; Campus B has a maximum benefit of $1,200.  Between the two campuses the $1,500 maximum is the highest maximum and is the amount that can be split between the campuses.)

Award amounts may not be adjusted on the bursar accounts until after the final deadline for dropping/adding of courses. The adjustments may result in less subsidy being provided at one or more campuses. Covered individuals are responsible for all tuition costs over the benefit

Dropped Courses – If the student drops courses or withdraws from school during the refund period, any refund applicable to the IU Tuition Benefit will revert back to the University. If the student drops courses or withdraws from school after the refund period, the IU Tuition Benefit award amount will stay applied to the student’s bursar account, the credit hours for the dropped courses will still apply toward the dependent child’s 140 hour maximum (if applicable), and the employee will continue to be responsible for any applicable taxes. See the Benefit Taxation section.
