Tuition Assistance Program guidelines

Additional Navigation

UUP Tuition Assistance Program

Application is made through the Office of Extended Learning, 166 Campus Center, x2270.  This program waives full tuition expenses for UUP employees for one course per semester or session only at SUNY schools.  Courses under this program are offered on a space available basis.

PEF Workshop and Seminar Reimbursement (WSR) Programs

Public Employees Federation (PEF) represented employees may be eligible for reimbursement for qualifying education expenses incurred during the 2014-2015 fiscal year.  For more details please visit https://www.goer.ny.gov/Training_Development/PEF/index.cfm 

NYS & CSEA Partnership Tuition Benefits (formerly LEAP)

Applications are available through the Office of Human Resources, 201 Culkin Hall, or by calling 1-800-253-4332.  This year the program provides one tuition benefit, for a maximum of four credits at $232 per credit.  See www.nyscseapartnership.org for more information.

SUNY B-140W Tuition Waiver Program

Application is made directly through the Provost's Office, 702 Culkin Hall or darlene.abrantes@oswego.edu.  Documentation of other tuition support requests/payments is required.  This program is used for supplemental support AFTER the employee has sought/received support from other sources.  This program can only be used for courses at SUNY schools.  Actual support received varies, but traditionally the maximum amounts awarded are 75% for the first course (either graduate or undergraduate 3 credit course) and 50% for the second course.  A maximum of two courses per semester may be awarded at the same rate of an employee's current employment percentage (i.e. $735 {3 cr. UG} x 75% x .5 FTE = $276 B-140 award).

NOTE: B-140W funds are available on a "first come-first served" basis.  The B-140 Application can be found at: http://www.oswego.edu/Documents/provost/operations/SUNY_B-140W_form.pdf and should be filed as soon as possible.

Be sure to obtain all of the necessary signatures prior to sending it to the Provost's Office.

If you have any questions about any of the above programs, please contact the Office of Human Resources, extension 2230, 201 Culkin Hall.
