Loyola Tuition Remission
Regular full-time employees, their spouses and children, and part-time employees are entitled to apply for tuition remission. Benefits apply to tuition charges for undergraduate and graduate level credit courses listed in the University catalogue. All prospective students must meet normal criteria for admission. Specific information regarding admission criteria may be obtained from the admission office. For more detail on employee eligibility, dependent guidelines, separation from the University, and taxation of benefits, please refer to your Employee Policy Manual.
Flex Schedule For Staff Employees
The University encourages supervisors to support professional development efforts of staff employees by allowing flexible work schedules as long as the workflow of the department is not affected. Tuition remission is authorized with the understanding that class and study hours do not conflict with regular work schedules. Employees may attend one course per semester (fall/spring) during the normal workday without being required to use vacation or personal leave provided that:
- The course is not offered at a time outside regular working hours;
- The employee consults with his/her supervisor in advance of registering for the course and obtains the supervisor’s approval by completing a Flex Schedule Form (for the employee to attach to the tuition remission application);
- The employee has arranged coverage for the office while attending class; and,
- The employee is willing to make up the time away from the work area, on the same day, by using lunch time, reporting to work earlier or staying later.
High School Tuition Remission
Eligible full-time employees may request tuition remission for their sons and daughters to attend three private high schools (Mercy High School, Calvert Hall, and Loyola Blakefield). To participate in the high school tuition remission benefit, dependent children must follow the appropriate application procedures and be accepted for admission as a full-time student. All prospective students must meet normal criteria for admission. Specific information regarding admission procedures and criteria may be obtained directly from the high school. Faculty, staff, and administrators hired on or after Feb. 1, 2004, are not eligible for high school tuition remission benefit. However, full-time employees hired prior to Feb. 1, 2004, are grandfathered and will continue to receive benefits for their eligible dependent children. Please see the Employee Policy Manual for more information.
