On Campus Tuition Remission
On-Campus Tuition Remission is a benefit provided to part time staff, their spouse/domestic partner and dependent children to attend classes for credit at Pace University.
Any scholarship or other University-provided tuition assistance may be impacted by On Campus Tuition Remission. Please contact the Financial Aid office for further information.
Tuition remission and tuition rate is based on the program in which you are enrolled (i.e. if a student is enrolled in a graduate program, undergraduate courses will be charged and taxed at the graduate level or if a student is enrolled in a doctoral program, graduate and/or undergraduate courses will be charged and taxed at the doctoral level).
Graduate courses are subject to tax withholdings governed by the IRS. See Taxable Tuition for more information.
The University does not provide tax advice. We recommend that you consult with a tax advisor for more information on the tax implications of this benefit.
On-Campus Tuition Remission covers only the tuition and the General Institution Fee (GIF). All other charges including lab fees, late charges or activities fees are not included and are the responsibility of the student. Tuition Remission benefits available under the On-Campus Tuition Remission Program do not cover special arrangements such as tutorials, independent study, or courses conducted off-campus which are accepted for credit at Pace.
Non-credit or certificate courses/programs are covered for the employee only and when directly related to your job. Please contact the University Benefits office for requirements and application procedures.
