Employee Educational Benefits

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING USING YOUR EMPLOYEE/SPOUSE TUITION BENEFIT

Course Restrictions
Many courses have restrictions placed on them which may require you to contact the department in advance for approval to enroll in the course.  You can review course information, meeting times, and restriction information online at Class Search.

Course Attendance, Participation, and Auditing
By enrolling in a course, the expectation will be that you participate in all aspects of the class.  Course attendance, coursework, and finals will likely be a part of your work. While you may elect to audit the course, the same level of participation will be expected.

Auditing a Class
Auditing a class simply means that you will not receive a grade for the class at the end of the semester. After you web register for the class through insideND, you will need to request that your class instructor email our office to authorize your auditing of the class. You will be charged the same tuition rate regardless if you audit or receive credit for the coursework.  Our office would then change the grade mode to an “audit” status.

Tuition Remission
Tuition remission may be considered a taxable benefit.   This is determined by the Payment Services Office based on the information submitted to Human Resources.  If it is determined that the course is a taxable benefit, the appropriate taxes will be withheld on your paycheck. 

Billing Information
Once you have registered for the course and completed ND roll call, you will receive a billing statement from Student Accounts for all charges which may include any fees associated with this class. You will be billed for all academic-year courses regardless of your intent to either audit or if you will receive a grade in the class.  For more information regarding charges, call Student Accounts at 1-7113. Identify yourself as a Notre Dame employee in a non-degree seeking class.
