Tuition Remission

As part of USF’s comprehensive benefits package, eligible employees and family members can further their education, enhance their skills, and pursue career development through tuition remission.

Tuition remission is a waiver of tuition and is available to employees and their eligible family members who qualify and are admitted for enrollment at USF. Employees, spouses, Registered Domestic Partners (RDPs) and IRS tax-dependent children are eligible for 100% tuition remission when they meet specific eligibility requirements. The benefits apply to tuition only; all non-tuition expenses and fees are the responsibility of the student.

  • A new tuition remission form must be submitted online for each semester that the benefit is requested. Please note that you must be an enrolled student to submit a form. 
  • If you are in the process of applying for a degree program during a filing period, please contact when you have been enrolled as a student. 
  • For more information about the visiting student application process review the Visiting Students page or contact

For more information about filing periods, additional documentation, supervisor approval, tax implications, etc., please review the tuition remission quick links above.


TE and FACHEX programs provide the opportunity for eligible IRS tax-dependent children of full-time faculty and staff to possibly receive an award for an undergraduate degree at a participating member institution. Be sure to review the TE institutions and FACHEX institutions who participate.

Applying for a TE or FACHEX award does not guarantee acceptance at that institution or ensure that an award will be granted. Award criteria is set by the institution at which the child is applying, and as with most award decisions, the process is competitive and can be primarily based on academic credentials.

For more information, please review the TE/FACHEX FAQ.

USF accepts TE and FACHEX forms from September 1 to November 13 each year. Please visit the tuition exchange web page for application instructions.
