Participant Rights and Responsibilities Upon Transfer or Termination
IU Tuition Benefit
Tuition costs are subsidized for eligible individuals attending Indiana University classes. The benefit is available to those meeting the eligibility criteria by the end of the first week of the semester or session.
The following categories of individuals are eligible for the IU Tuition Benefit. The level of coverage varies by category.
- Full-time (100%) Faculty and Staff employed by the end of the first week of the semester or session;
- former employees with IU Retiree status or who are receiving long-term disability benefits from a university-sponsored plan, Social Security Administration, or PERF; and
- the following dependents of this eligible group:
- The legal spouse or registered domestic partner; and
- The dependent child who is unmarried, age 23 or younger, and a tax dependent of the employee.
A participant is no longer eligible for the IU Tuition Benefit when:
- an employee no longer meets the eligibility criteria (e.g. no longer a full-time Academic or Staff employee); or
- an employee terminates from the university; or
- a spouse or dependent child no longer meets the eligibility criteria (e.g., due to divorce or a dependent child marrying, completing a baccalaureate degree, reaching the limiting age).
A participant may complete course work for any semester/session that began while the participant was eligible. Any refund due from the university or amount owed to the university for the Tuition Benefit will be paid or collected after the end of the semester/session.
In the event of an employee's death while eligible, his or her eligible dependents may receive the IU Tuition Benefit, the same as if he or she was still employed.
Summary of actions the participant must take:
- The participant must make sure that a forwarding address is on file with the campus Human Resources office. This will ensure that any billings that are necessary or any refunds that are due are forwarded to the participant at the correct address.
