Tuition Benefits for Employee
What is a Faculty/Staff Dependent Grant?
A Faculty/Staff Dependent Grant is a La Salle University employee
benefit that allows the dependents of La Salle University employees
to pursue a baccalaureate degree at La Salle University. Additionally,
dependent children may be eligible to attend other cooperating
post-secondary institutions through the Tuition Exchange Program.
Who are considered eligible dependents?
Eligible dependents are either spouses or dependent children of
La Salle University employees who have been employed full-time
for a minimum of five years at the University. Previous full-time
employment at another college or university may be applied to
the five (5) year waiting period.
Dependent children are defined by the standards of the Internal
Revenue Service for the tax year immediately preceding the academic
year. The dependent student cannot already possess a baccalaureate
How many courses may a dependent take per semester?
Eligible dependent students may enroll full-time (12 credits or
What does the Faculty/Staff dependent grant cover?
The grant covers tuition costs and also educationally related
fees. The grant is limited to full-time tuition; it will not cover
additional charges if a student registers for an overload.
The employee is responsible for paying the health fee, the student
activity fee, the graduation fee and any other fees not directly
associated with education.
Where may dependent students take courses?
Spouses of employees may only enroll in courses at La Salle University
in either the Undergraduate Day Division or Continuing Studies.
Children of La Salle employees may enroll in courses at La Salle
University in either the Undergraduate Day Division or Continuing
Studies. Dependent children may also attend as undergraduate day
students at other co-operating post-secondary institutions through
the Tuition Exchange Program.
How do I apply for the Faculty/Staff Dependent Grant?
For attendance at La Salle University, students must first be
accepted by the Offices of Admission or Continuing Studies. Employees
with eligible dependents must then complete the Employee Verification
Form available on the forms section of the Financial Aid
Website. This form, together with a copy of the employee's latest
federal income tax form and a copy of the student's bill, need
to be forwarded to the Human Resources Department. Human Resources
will confirm eligibility and notify the Financial Aid
Office to credit the student's account. The Employee Verification
Form needs to be completed for each semester in which the student
is applying for benefits. The Financial Aid Office
must be notified if the student drops or adds courses so that
their benefits can be adjusted.
How do I apply for a Tuition Exchange Grant at another
Dependents of faculty/staff members who wish to attend another
institution through the Tuition Exchange Program must complete
the Tuition Exchange Application form available on the Financial
Aid Forms website and send to the Financial Aid Office.
In addition, they must complete the Employee Verification Form
and attach a copy of their latest federal income tax form. This
form should be sent to Human Resources so that they can verify
the student's eligibility. First time applicants should complete
this process no later than November 1 of the year prior to their
prospective enrollment. Employees will need to file an Employee
Verification Form for each semester in which the student will
receive the grant and file the Tuition Exchange Application every
year in order for the grant to be renewed.
Does filing an application guarantee a Tuition Exchange
No. Tuition Exchange is a competitive grant. Each school determines
the number of grants it offers and the criteria by which recipients
are chosen. Once a student receives the grant, it can be renewed
for a total of 8 semesters or until the student receives a baccalaureate
What does the Tuition Exchange Grant cover?
The Tuition Exchange Program requires colleges to offer full tuition
or a minimum grant; whichever is lower. The minimum grant for
2006-2007 is $23,500. Schools whose tuitions are lower than $23,500
are required to offer full tuition. Schools with tuitions higher
than $23,500 must offer at least that amount. Some schools offer
full tuition even though the amount is greater than the minimum
requirement. Other schools may offer room and board as well. Details
on specific schools can be found on the Tuition Exchange website
