University of Rochester Employees

For University tuition benefits policies and forms, visit the tuition benefits homepage. The tuition waiver form alone does not register you for a course; you must still complete the registration process outlined above. Courses covered under the University of Rochester's tuition benefits package must be completed with a satisfactory grade in order for the course to be paid for by the University. Courses that are not dropped prior to the first day of classes will be paid for by the student according to the University's refund schedule. In addition, taking an incomplete in a course will result in the course not being paid for until the course is complete - late fees and account holds may result. UR tuition benefits are limited to courses completed within six months after the end of the course.

Please note: If you are utilizing tuition benefits for graduate or non-credit courses, your courses may be taxable. Please visit the Taxability of Employee Tuition Benefits webpage for information to help you determine whether graduate tuition assistance benefits are taxable and how much tax will be withheld from your paycheck.

Federal Loan Funding for Prerequisite Coursework

On a case-by-case basis, some students may be eligible for limited federal student loan funding to assist with the costs of their prerequisite coursework. If you are interested in receiving federal loan aid for your prerequisites, please review this page to determine whether you meet the eligibility criteria. Students who meet the criteria as listed on the page are encourage to proactively submit their FAFSA for the appropriate academic year, as well as contact the School of Nursing Financial Aid Counselor.

Please keep in mind that federal financial aid processing will take about two weeks after all required documents have been submitted.
