This policy applies to full-time and part-time (20 hours per week or more or at least half time) regular status faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University and to their dependent children, spouses, or registered domestic partners, unless specifically covered by collective bargaining agreements made between Gallaudet University and certified bargaining agents. This policy applies only to employees who were hired prior to September 1, 2019. Employees hired on or after September 1, 2019, including re-hires after that date, are not eligible to receive tuition assistance under this policy.
Recognizing the value of employment longevity and the benefits of a formal education beyond the secondary school level, Gallaudet offers tuition assistance to employees with five or more years of cumulative service who have children, a spouse or registered domestic partner who wish to enroll as students in an accredited undergraduate college degree program or in an accredited post-secondary vocational-technical training program. Tuition assistance is not available for programs beyond the bachelor's degree. Tuition assistance monies may be applied towards tuition, mandatory fees (those required of all students at the time of registration), on-campus or off-campus housing, and/or on-campus board costs. Appropriate documentation will be requested for all support. No assistance is granted for courses which are eligible for reimbursement under a different program.
All IRS and U.S. Tax Court rulings regarding withholding and reporting requirements for tuition assistance benefits are followed by the University, and the University makes no promises or guarantees as to the tax treatment of tuition assistance. A dependent child is defined in accordance with IRS regulations.
