Tuition Remission Procedures

The tuition remission program includes expenses for tuition only; any other fees are not covered under the program. Employees should also be aware that in any given semester, the value of tuition remission benefits on a per-credit-hour basis will equal the per-credit-hour rate of the least costly program offering the degree at Temple University. For example, the calculated rate of tuition remission per-credit-hour for the Executive MBA program will not exceed the standard per-credit-hour rate for the traditional MBA program.

The first step is to register for the course(s). For assistance with the registration process, you may contact the Academic Resource Center

PLEASE NOTE: Graduate and spousal/partner tuition benefits are considered taxable.

Spousal/partner tuition benefits, both undergraduate and graduate, are considered a taxable benefit.
