Education Benefits

Tuition Benefits Program Overview

The University supports employee career development, including education, vocational and professional development. Educational and career development opportunities encourage growth and commitment from employees, often resulting in greater engagement, enhanced capabilities and improved performance.

In addition to numerous training and development programs, the University also offers $2000 per employee per calendar year in tuition benefits for academic and related coursework, including vocational and professional development opportunities. Education Benefits may be used for academic degrees or courses at UVa and other accredited institutions, and non-credit courses, certificates and licenses at UVa and other education providers. Enrollment in the program is through Benefits@UVa.

Schools and departments may provide additional departmentally-funded financial support by providing a PTAO that will be charged for the amount approved by the department.

While the Education Benefits program does provide funding for part-time employees as described below, the primary purpose of the program is to support full-time employees who are part-time students. The program is not intended to support the coursework of full-time students.

The University encourages employees to explore the rich educational, vocational and professional development opportunities available on-Grounds, locally, regionally and on-line. Career Services is available to meet with University Academic Division employees and managers to advise on career development and educational, vocational and professional development choices. These services are available without fees; they are a benefit to University Academic Division employees.

Important Note:

  • All academic bi-weekly paid employees must submit their 2014 education benefit request by December 14, 2014.
  • All academic monthly paid employees must submit their 2014 education benefit request by December 21, 2014.

All education benefit requests submitted after these dates will be processed as 2015 education benefits.
