New Tuition Waiver Policy

The University of Toledo’s tuition waiver policy has been updated, effective summer semester 2020. Employees’ tuition will still be waived 100%; however, other fees will no longer be covered. Also, the Tuition Waiver Request form must be submitted earlier – prior to the payment due date, posted on the Treasurer’s webpage in advance of each semester.

Other policy highlights:

  • Employees seeking a JD law degree are ineligible for the waiver after spring semester, but those currently pursuing a JD law degree will be grandfathered in per details in the new policy.
  • Courses taken by an employee’s spouse or dependents must be taken for credit and toward completing a degree, with 100% of their tuition still waived.
  • The minimum of 12 credit hours per semester has been removed from the policy.

Note: Employees in collective bargaining units should refer to their specific CBU agreement for any details related to the tuition waiver benefit.

The new tuition waiver policy and much more information are available on the NEW TUITION WAIVER PAGE.

Required Legal Notifications:  UT is required to provide employees the following legal notifications annually. This is for informational purposes only.

Social Security Number/Individual Taxpayer Identification Number Request

Due to recent regulation changes, you must provide a Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to the UT Benefits Department for each dependent you wish to enroll in the Plan to satisfy federal reporting requirements. This condition allows UT to comply with a Medicare law requiring health plan administrators to electronically report data for covered plan participants to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Spouses, same and opposite sex domestic partners are not eligible to begin coverage until a SSN/ITIN has been provided as part of enrollment.  Coverage for dependent children will begin upon enrollment.  However, if a child’s SSN/ITIN is not received within 90 days of enrollment, coverage for the child will be terminated retroactive to the date coverage began.  You may be required to reimburse the Plan for any expenses for which benefits were paid on behalf of an otherwise ineligible dependent.
