Tuition Waiver Benefit Available for Graduate-Level Courses
THERE IS an important benefit to Academic Professionals, Faculty, and Civil Service who are taking graduate-level courses and who are eligible to receive a tuition waiver at the University.
THE UNIVERSITY exempts the first $5,250 of the tuition waiver from taxable income in accordance with Internal Revenue Code Section 127. This exemption is based on tuition waivers received by an employee in a calendar year.
UNIVERSITY PAYROLL monitors waivers posted to employees' student accounts. When the value exceeds the exempted amount of $5,250, the employee is notified of the taxability. The notification will be in the form of an email and via the U.S. Postal Service to the mailing address in Banner.
