Educational Benefit

The University of Alabama offers an educational benefit to all regular (not temporary) full-time and part-time employees and their eligible spouses and dependent children up to the age of 26 who are enrolled at the University. Admission to The University of Alabama is required before an employee, spouse or dependent can receive the educational benefit. Only one educational benefit per student will be awarded even if there is more than one eligible employee in a family unit.

Eligible employees may receive 100% payment for up to 3 hours (in-state tuition rate) and 50% for all other hours taken. Eligible dependents of employees may receive up to 50% payment for all hours taken. This payment does not apply toward the cost of fees, e.g., course fees, college fees or charges associated with the auditing of a course.

Additional requirements and some exceptions may apply. For details regarding this benefit, please refer to the Human Resources Policy Manual – Policy 702.00, Educational Benefits.
