Full tuition for undergraduate and graduate courses is provided for regular full-time employees who enroll in classes at the University of Indianapolis. Spouses receive full tuition for undergraduate and fifty percent (50%) benefit for master’s degree courses taken at the University. The policy does not apply to doctoral programs.
Full tuition is granted for undergraduate courses to dependent children or step-children of full-time employees. Some of the main criteria for eligibility the child must meet are:
- Never been married
- Under age 23 (based on FAFSA criteria)
- Has not received a first baccalaureate degree
- Is not a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces
- Does not have children of his/her own for whom the student provides more than half support
The Faculty/Staff Discount is available to dependent children only for the first baccalaureate degree. No Faculty/Staff Discount is granted to dependent children who are matriculated into a graduate program and charged tuition at the graduate level.
A 25% reduction of tuition charge is available to regular part-time employees and their spouses who choose to enroll in undergraduate courses. This benefit is also available to dependent children or step-children, provided the child meets all of the criteria listed above, for the first baccalaureate degree.
A regular part-time staff member must work at least 20 hours per week, 10 months a year to be eligible. Adjunct faculty members must have taught six semester hours during the preceding academic year and be currently teaching to be eligible. A one-year waiting period is required before a regular part-time staff member or an adjunct faculty member is eligible.
A 12.5% tuition discount is available for regular part-time staff and their spouses who enroll in master’s level courses.
See the faculty or staff handbook for a complete description of the tuition discount policy.
