Campbell University offers a range of tuition benefits to its full-time employees and their spouses and dependents for undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies, in addition to some educational opportunities outside the University. Full-time employees are eligible for tuition benefits the following term after completion of the probationary employment period.
A dependent child of an eligible full-time employee is eligible for tuition assistance if the employee is able to claim the child as a dependent on his/her federal income tax.
Eligible employees and dependents attending the University and using tuition benefits must maintain Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress as specified by the University. After two semesters, students using University Faculty Staff Tuition Assistance benefits who fail to maintain the specified minimum requirements will become ineligible for continued tuition assistance benefits. However, students may continue to attend at their own expense, and upon attainment of Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress in accordance with University policy may reapply for resumption of tuition assistance benefits.
NOTE: The IRS requires that certain education assistance benefits be reported as taxable income and be included on employees’ Forms W-2. Please check with a tax professional in regards to how this benefit may impact your annual state and federal taxes. Please see the back of the Faculty/Staff Education Benefit Request Form for additional details.Download the Tuition Assistance Form
