- Tuition remission will be applied as a credit to the student's account. The tuition amount will be credited after the official add/drop period has ended, and all revisions to course load and/or tuition charges have been processed by Student Records. This is an effort to accurately credit each participant's account should a change to course load occur.
- Tuition charges and course loads for participants are verified in PeopleSoft by Human Resources directly. As a result, you no longer need to submit your billing statement to Human Resources.
|Note: Graduate level tuition remission may be considered taxable income to the faculty/staff member. If so, the tuition will be added to gross pay, as taxable income, in the quarter that tuition is received. More information may be obtained by contacting the Human Resources Service Desk at (408)554-4392 or by viewing the Staff Policy Manual.
