Tuition Waiver Scholarships

The tuition waiver scholarship is available to eligible employees’ dependent children at member institutions and employee eligibility is defined by the employee’s institution. A dependent child, according to IRS guidelines, with at least one parent employed at a participating institution will be eligible for a tuition waiver scholarship. Please note that although the employee’s dependent child may be eligible for the tuition waiver scholarship, the “host institution”, or school where the student applies, does not have to accept the dependent student into their tuition waiver program. Unfortunately, this means that dependent children are not guaranteed to receive a scholarship from their school of choice.

    Exports

    The tuition waiver scholarship is available to eligible AU employees’ dependent children. Please note that although the employee’s child may be eligible for the tuition waiver scholarship from Anderson University-IN, the “host institution”, or school where the student applies, does not have to accept the dependent student into their tuition waiver program. Unfortunately, this means that dependent children of Anderson University employees are not guaranteed to receive a scholarship from their school of choice.

    Selection Criteria:

    • Must be a traditional, first-year undergraduate full-time student.
    • Must be a dependent child, according to IRS guidelines, of an Anderson University employee and the dependent child wants to attend an institution other than Anderson University.
    • Each institution determines its own procedure and criteria for selecting import applicants. Most institutions select applicants on a first-come/first-serve basis, academic merit, financial need, or a combination of the three.

    Application Process:

    Step 1: Qualified students should select importing institution(s) that they desire to attend.

    Step 2: Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the date designated by the importing institution.

    Step 3: Complete the application for admission to each institution they want to attend.

    Step 4: Submit their high school transcript to each institution they want to attend.

    Step 5: Submit the tuition waiver application(s) for each of their institution choices by the filing deadline specified by the importing institution.

    Awarding Process:

    Renewal Process:

      the importing institution for renewal each year. The form should be marked for renewal and the academic
      year of the renewal.
    • One parent must still be a continuous full-time, benefit status employee at a participating tuition waiver
      institution. The home (exporting) institution must provide documentation of employment for said
      parent/employee.
    • Awarded applicants must comply with all of the importing institution’s financial aid policies and procedures.
    • Awarded applicants must comply with all of the importing institution’s good academic and satisfactory
      academic progress.
    • Each year, the student should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 15.

    Important Information:

    • The tuition waiver benefit covers the full cost of tuition. Students are responsible for all non-tuition charges— room, board, and fees—at the institution in which they enroll.
    • While students usually receive the benefit for four years, it is not guaranteed. The student must continue to meet the college’s academic standards, both institutions must remain participants in the program, and the employee must continue to meet the eligibility requirements of the benefit. Students in good standing are automatically eligible for up to three years of annual renewal of tuition remission (for a total benefit of four years or eight semesters).

    REMITTED TUITION BENEFIT POLICY

    Remitted tuition is an Anderson University-IN employee benefit. Applications for Undergraduate and Graduate Remitted Tuition are available online through the Office of Work-Life Engagement.

    • Regular employees, with the supervisor’s approval, and members of the employee’s immediate family may receive tuition reduction benefits for undergraduate classes taken at Anderson University-IN, provided the student has been admitted to the university.
    • Regular employees of the university may receive tuition benefits for graduate classes taken at Anderson University-IN provided the employee has been admitted to the graduate program and received their supervisor’s approval.
    • Applications for undergraduate tuition benefits are reviewed by the Office of Work-Life Engagement for certification of eligibility.
    • Applications for graduate tuition benefits must be signed by the graduate program before sending to the Office of Work-Life Engagement.
    • A remitted tuition application form must be completed, and a promissory note signed, for each semester benefits are requested.
