Board Policy 440.1 extends educational benefits at reduced rates to full-time (100% appointed) University of Arkansas employees. A new waiver is required for each fall, spring, and summer semester. Each employee must meet the requirements for discount eligibility listed below. The Fayetteville campus has implemented policies and procedures regarding Employee Tuition Waivers which are also listed below.

The University of Arkansas Staff Senate provides a scholarship to at least one full-time University of Arkansas staff member wishing to attend classes to assist in employee development through higher education. Employees wishing to take classes are encouraged to visit the Staff Senate website for additional information regarding this scholarship. The scholarship application is available on-line from their website. This scholarship is not available for spouse/dependents and is granted based on funds available to the program.

Per Internal Revenue Code section 127, if your employer pays more than $5,250 for educational benefits for you during the calendar year, you must pay tax on the amount over $5,250. Any amount over $5,250 per calendar year will be taxed by the University.

NOTE: Waivers will not post for the spring term until January of the year the term begins to limit amount of taxable benefit for that calendar year.
