Courses must meet certain criteria to be eligible for the Tuition Assistance Benefit on Boulder campus. If you stay enrolled in classes that are not eligible, you will be responsible for paying full tuition and fees. If you decide to drop the class or classes, please do so by the last day to drop published in the Add & Drop Calendars. The following course restrictions apply:

  • Courses must have a "Boulder Main Campus" designation to be eligible. You can find the campus designation in course details in Class Search. Courses offered through Continuing Education, audited courses, extended studies, Outreach Programs, Study Abroad and/or noncredit courses do not qualify for the Tuition Assistance Benefit.
  • Employees utilizing the tuition waiver cannot participate in concurrent registration.
  • An employee’s coursework must be taken outside scheduled working hours or with an adjusted work schedule of equivalent hours acceptable to the employing department.
  • An employee cannot use the 9 credit hour waiver during an academic year (one or more semesters) in which their dependent is using the discount and vice versa.
  • Employees who are classified for tuition purposes as nonresident undergraduates cannot enroll in more credit hours than the benefit they are using in any given semester.
  • Employees who are enrolled full time can use the benefit during the fall or spring semesters.
