Tuition Assistance and Spouse/Dependent Grant Program

Submitted by Laurie Chandler

Kansas State University values continuing education for its employees and provides tuition assistance for classes taken through Kansas State University at the Manhattan, Olathe, or Salina campuses. Tuition Assistance for University Employees is available to all full-time (0.9 FTE or above), benefits eligible employees.

An Application for Tuition Assistance must be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Assistance before the start of each semester. Payment of tuition for one undergraduate or graduate course, up to three hours, is permitted for each Fall, Spring and Summer semester. Three hours of tuition is covered at the in-state, on campus rate. Tuition Assistance does not include additional fees. 

The application requires the employee's and department head's signatures. For KSRE, completed applications should be submitted to Jennifer Wilson, Extension Operations, jrwilson@ksu.edu, for department head signature. Classes may be taken through the Manhattan, Olathe, and Salina campuses.

In order to be eligible for the K-State Spouse/Dependent Grant program, the employee must carry a full-time (0.9 FTE or above), benefits eligible, regular (non-term) appointment throughout the full academic year. Full-time (0.9 FTE or above), benefits eligible, term employees are eligible for the spouse/dependent grant upon attaining five years of service in a faculty or staff appointment to Kansas State University.

The Dependent/Spouse Grant provides up to seven hours of undergraduate or three hours of graduate credit per semester for eligible employees and dependents. More information concerning the K-State Dependent/Spouse Grant can be found by visiting the Office of Student Financial Assistance.
