Staff/Faculty Tuition Remission

Eligible staff/faculty will receive remission for tuition only. All other charges are the responsibility of the staff/faculty member using tuition remission.

Important Information for Staff/Faculty Graduate Level Courses

Please be aware that the full value of staff/faculty graduate tuition remission is subject to New Jersey state tax withholding. In addition, under federal regulations, any graduate tuition remission benefit over $5,250 per calendar year is also considered taxable.

State taxes will be withheld according to the schedule below for each semester that remission is used.

Federal withholding will begin in the first semester in which remission benefit exceeds $5,250 and every subsequent semester during the calendar year when remission is used.
