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 by the first day of classes each semester.
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 are not posted for employees until the last day to add classes for the semester has passed and the Employee Tuition Request has been completed. This usually occurs after the tenth day of classes. The Benefits Office will post the determined amount of benefit to the student's account at that time.
Dependents of faculty and staff will have tuition remission posted to the student's account after the Employee Tuition Request is completed and eligibility is confirmed by the Benefits Office. Dependent students are responsible for paying any associated fees for their program by the invoice due date.
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 first day of classes, the student or employee can appeal a penalty charge cancellation by e-mailing The HUB. The e-mail should include the student's name and reason for the appeal. Appeals should only be requested after the tuition benefit is posted to the student account.
As an employee I was charged the Technology, Port Authority and Student Activities fees. Am I responsible for paying these fees?
Current employees of the university will not be assessed these fees. These fees are only removed after the Benefits Office determines that the employee is eligible to have these fees waived. The Benefits Office will also denote the student account that the student is an employee.
