On Campus Tuition Remission

On-Campus Tuition Remission is given to those who are attending classes for credit at Pace University. On-Campus Tuition Remission covers only the tuition. All other charges including lab fees, late charges or activities fees are not included. Attendance in classes will not be allowed during scheduled work hours including during one's lunch period.

Full-time employees are eligible to receive 100% tuition for the duration of the employee's full-time employment in all programs except Special Programs* (such as Executive Business Program (EMBA), the Ph.D. Psychology Program, and the Law School, and all doctoral programs, etc) or Non-Credit or Certificate Courses/Programs which are covered for employees only and when directly job related. Contact Human Resources for requirements and application procedures for Non-Credit or Certificate Courses/Programs.

Graduate courses are subject to tax withholdings governed by the IRS. See Taxable Tuition for more information.

Procedures

A staff member must obtain approval from his/her supervisor to confirm that there is no conflict with the work schedule (Part IV on the application). In general, a staff employee’s work schedule may not be altered to accommodate his/her student schedule.

Any adding/dropping of classes requires completion of a new On-Campus Tuition Remission Application form ( https://appsrv.pace.edu/TRemission/).

Completed application forms must be submitted to the University Benefits office for approval by the date(s) indicated below. Failure to comply with the timelines may delay posting of the benefit and may result in a late fee assessment, which is the responsibility of the student.

Due to possible tax implications, graduate-level forms proceed to the Payroll office prior to arriving at the University Benefits office.

The Office of Student Assistance (OSA) generally sends an invoice to the student for all charges. OSA will credit the student's account for the amount of the on-campus tuition remission benefit upon receipt of the completed On-Campus Tuition Remission Application form.

On-Campus Tuition Remission forms that are received during a semester (for that semester) or after a semester has concluded will not be considered.
