Faculty and staff members who utilize the university's tuition benefits program for themselves or their dependents must complete an Employee Tuition Request on HR Connection two weeks prior to the first day of classes.
Questions regarding eligibility for this benefit are available on the Human Resources website.
The student received an invoice from the Student Accounts Office and the tuition remission benefit has not yet been credited. What should I do?
Tuition remission credits for all faculty, staff, and eligible dependents are posted after the Employee Tuition Request has been submitted and processed by the Benefits Office. If you have submitted your request by the application deadline, but do not see the credit posted to the student account, please follow-up with the Benefits Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The institution where I am/my child is enrolled has not received a check from the university for the tuition benefit.
I am employed by Carnegie Mellon and receive its health insurance benefit. Do I still need to submit a Health Insurance Waiver form?
Yes, employees who are students must still show proof of coverage. Employees can access a health insurance waiver form on the Student Health Services website. Your health insurance plan will be reviewed by Student Health Services. If you have appropriate coverage, your charge will be cancelled. Otherwise, payment is due for the premium by the invoice due date.
A penalty charge appeared on the student account invoice. How can it be appealed?
If the university employee has completed the Employee Tuition Request by the Benefits Office's application deadline, the student or employee may appeal a penalty charge by emailing The HUB. The email should include the student's name, Andrew ID, and reason for the appeal. Appeals should only be requested after the tuition benefit has been posted to the student account.
As an employee I was charged several different fees. Am I responsible for paying these fees?
Faculty and staff who are registered at least half-time are responsible for paying the Student Activities fee.
The Transportation and Technology fees appearing on the student's account are not the responsibility of the faculty or staff member. Instead, these fees will be automatically removed after the Employee Tuition Request has been submitted and processed by the Benefits Office.
All other non-tuition related charges appearing on the student account are the responsibility of the faculty or staff member per the Student Financial Obligation Terms.
