The University encourages employees to continue their formal education and provides tuition benefits for approved coursework. We provide an educational assistance program, a tuition waiver program, and a tuition assistance program for dependents. (Please note that employees hired or rehired on Sept. 1, 2019, are no longer eligible for benefits under the tuition assistance program for dependents.) A summary of the benefits under each program is provided below. If you have further questions regarding the taxes or reimbursement, please contact us.
A regular-status staff employee must satisfactorily complete the initial probationary period before the employee or eligible family member may enroll in the course for which tuition waiver is being requested. (This requirement does not apply to sign language classes for employees.) A regular-status faculty member or teacher may enroll and apply for tuition waiver following the effective date of employment. Part-time employees and their family members are eligible to apply for tuition waiver for one course per semester only.
This policy applies to full-time and part-time (20 hours per week or more or at least half-time) regular-status faculty, teachers, and staff in all University offices and divisions.
The Educational Assistance Program is designed to promote career advancement at the University and to enable employees to contribute more effectively to Gallaudet’s programs and services. Educational assistance provides for tuition and mandatory fees (those required of all students at the time of registration) at institutions other than Gallaudet University.
For more information on the Educational Assistance Program, please visit A&O Manual 4.23.
This applies to full-time and part-time (20 hours per week or more or at least half-time) regular-status faculty, teachers, and staff in all University offices and divisions and to their dependent children, spouses, or registered domestic partners.
The Tuition Waiver Program provides tuition waiver for approved coursework at Gallaudet, including sign language classes, provided the applicant meets the admissions requirements and is accepted, and, following admission of tuition-paying students, there is available space within the class. Tuition and mandatory fees (those required of all students at the time of registration) only are waived.
For more information on the Tuition Waiver Program, please visit A&O Manual 4.24.
This program applies to full-time and part-time (20 hours per week or more or at least half-time) regular-status faculty, teachers, and staff in all University offices and divisions who were hired prior to Sept. 1, 2019, and to their dependent children, spouses, or registered domestic partners. Employees hired on or after Sept. 1, 2019, including re-hires after that date, are not eligible to receive tuition assistance.
Recognizing the value of employment longevity and the benefits of a formal education beyond the secondary school level, Gallaudet offers tuition assistance to employees with five or more years of cumulative service who have a child, a spouse, or a registered domestic partner who wishes to enroll in an accredited undergraduate college degree program or in an accredited post-secondary vocational-technical training program.
Tuition assistance is not available for programs beyond the bachelor’s degree. Tuition assistance monies may be applied toward tuition, mandatory fees (those required of all students at the time of registration), on-campus or off-campus housing, and/or on-campus board costs. Appropriate documentation will be requested for all support. No assistance is granted for courses which are eligible for reimbursement under a different program.
For more information on tuition waiver programs, please visit A&O Manual 3.15.
The forms can be found via Adobe Sign under Workflows.
