Tuition Benefits

Loyola University Chicago offers the privilege of tuition remission to full-time, benefits eligible employees, qualified retirees, and/or their spouses, legally domiciled adults and dependent children up to the age of 24. This policy supersedes all previous tuition remission policies at University Lakeside and Health Sciences (Schools of Medicine & Nursing), and eligibility is contingent on compliance with the guidelines contained herein. For employees receiving the benefit this program will pay the cost of tuition only for university course work; however, it does not cover any extra fees, such as late fees, program deposits or  instructional fees.  Tuition Remission does not cover any fees for dependents such as fees associated with courses, program deposits, co-pays or room and board for the dependents. Tuition Benefit will apply to all semesters which include the Fall, J-Term, Spring, Summer, online courses, School or Nursing, Summer Scholars Program for HS students and qualified Study Abroad Programs. Tuition Benefit for employees is only available at the Loyola University Chicago so there will be no reimbursement for courses taken outside of Loyola University Chicago. Dependent children are able to use the benefit at Loyola University Chicago and any Jesuit Institution apart of the FACHEX program for undergrad programs only.

The Tuition Benefit can be applied to all programs with the exception of The School of Medicine, The School of Law, Continuum Program Non-Credit Courses, Executive Education Programs, Executive MBA cohort based program, ESL and any other program that is not conferred at Loyola University Chicago.

Students who are eligible and receiving the Tuition benefit must remain in strict compliance with all academic, financial and financial aid policies and requirements, including but not limited to the satisfactory academic progress policy at: http://www.luc.edu/academics/catalog/undergrad/reg_academicstanding.shtml  Failure to comply with stated policies and requirements will result in forfeiture of the Tuition Benefit for current or future terms. This benefit applies to tuition only. If an employee or dependent is placed on academic probation they must follow the guidelines set forth by their program and their benefit will not be reinstated until they are in full compliance with their program. The employee is responsible for all fees (i.e., room, board, late fees, activity fees, online course fees, etc.). Payment must be made, in full or via acceptable payment arrangements made through the Bursar's Office, by the payment deadlines established by the Bursar for the term in question.

It it the responsibility of the employee and their dependents to verify and meet eligibility requirements prior to registering for courses at Loyola University Chicago if the goal is to receive the tuition benefit. 

Loyola University’s definition of dependent child, legally domiciled adult and spouse follows the guidelines set forth by the Internal Revenue Service, which would make a dependent child no longer eligible for the tuition benefit once they turn the age of 24 (http://www.irs.gov/uac/A-%E2%80%9CQualifying-Child%E2%80%9D).  

 

Receiving the Tuition Benefit Step-by-Step 

The Tuition Benefit process is completely automated as of October 2010. There is no form to complete in order to receive the Tuition Benefit for credit seeking students both employee and dependents for the Lakeside (LUC), Health Science (HSD), and Loyola Medical Center Faculty/Physicians (LUMCP). In order to receive the benefit employees/dependents must complete and renew the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Form (FAFSA) for every academic year they are enrolled. Employees of TRINITY/LUMC ONLY must complete the FAFSA in addition to the Tuition Benefit form available in the Trinity Human Resources Department. Trinity/LUMC employees Tuition Benefit is different than the University benefit. Trinity/LUMC employees are encouraged to call their HR department for more details by contacting Alicia Malvaez 708-216-9409.  For Steps on how to receive the benefit please use on of the links below.

 

Academics and Admission at Loyola University Chicago

In addition to the "full-time, benefits eligibility" and the service requirement, eligibility for Tuition Benefit is premised on the student's application and admission into the desired academic program. Admission into any academic program is never guaranteed and competition may be intense for a limited number of available openings. The application and admission processes with their stated requirements and requisite costs are the student's responsibility and must be completed before the employee, spouse, legally domiciled adult and/or dependent child is eligible for any Tuition Benefit. There is no waiver of application fee, priority enrollment or reduced rate of tuition for employees/ dependents who utilize the Tuition Benefit.
