Tuition Benefits

The university makes tuition benefits available after two years of service to full-time employees and their eligible dependents in three major categories. Only one of the three options is available at a time. See the Tuition Benefit Policy for details. If you have any questions regarding the Tuition Benefit programs offered, please contact Susan Cooper.

1. Furman Tuition Benefit – available to full-time employees and their eligible dependents that meet the admissions requirements for the undergraduate or graduate programs at Furman and are enrolled to complete a degree.

2. Tuition Exchange Programs – available for dependent children of full-time faculty and staff with other private colleges of the Associated Colleges of the South and with colleges in the Tuition Exchange, Inc. Dependents are eligible to apply for a Tuition Exchange award but are not guaranteed a scholarship.

3. Tuition Scholarship Grant –  a cash tuition scholarship available to dependent children of full-time faculty or staff who are full-time students pursuing a degree at an accredited undergraduate two-year or four-year institution.

4. Job-Related Tuition Reimbursement – available to all full-time staff who attend accredited institutions, other than Furman, and take job-related courses. The university will reimburse the employee up to $250 per semester and up to a maximum of $500 per year for courses that have been pre-approved by the department manager and a Human Resources representative. A grade of “C” or better must be obtained to receive reimbursement.
