The Tuition Remission Application is one form for all participant types, inclusive of active employees, dependents, and retirees. The full Tuition Remission benefits policy is available here.
A few important items:
• Only employees can submit tuition remission requests in Workday on behalf of their dependents.
• Tuition remission requests must be submitted within the announced application period for each semester.
• Completed applications along with the required documents must be submitted via Workday.
• Tuition remission applications received without the required documentation will not be approved.
Documents required with your tuition remission request:
• Employees must submit a completed tuition remission application.
• Employees must submit an unofficial transcript (from the previous semester). If you are a new student, you must submit your acceptance letter.
• If the application is being submitted on behalf of an eligible dependent, the employee must submit a completed tuition remission application, a copy of the eligible dependent(s) birth certificate, an unofficial transcript, or an acceptance letter if you are a new student. The acceptance letter and birth certificate are only required for the first time submitting a tuition remission application for your dependent(s).
Tuition remission for graduate education
Employees/Retirees seeking Tuition Remission for graduate education yourself, please read the applicable statement:
By signing the tuition remission form, I acknowledge that I am applying for Tuition Remission for my own education in courses at the graduate level. I understand that I will be taxed for the value of the Tuition Remission that may exceed $5,250 for graduate level courses.
Please note: Howard University mandates that all students have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for domestic students or an International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA) for international students on file before the Office of Financial Aid will post any merit or awards to student accounts (this includes approved tuition remission). This gives The Office of Financial Aid the data needed to ensure the equitable distribution of university aid. The FAFSA can be completed and/or corrected at www.studentaid.gov. Howard University’s School Code is 001448. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about applying for financial aid.
