About the Tuition Reduction Program
The Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies is responsible for the management of the Tuition Assistance Program. Financial support for the program is provided by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost. This assistance program is an important component of the university's efforts to build the apparatus to support graduate Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Assistant Instructors (AIs) and is the result of considerable cooperation and effort of graduate students, staff, and administration. The 1997-98 academic year marked the inauguration of this program.
Beginning in academic year (AY) 2013 - 2014, students employed as TAs, AIs and Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs) will be eligible for a tuition reduction benefit (TRB) related to their student academic employment. The assistance amounts can vary based on the number of hours of the appointment and is paid on a semester basis.
TRB will replace the Tuition Assistance Benefit (TAB) for TAs and AIs and tuition remission for GRAs. Whereas the TAB was a special, prepaid form of taxable compensation, TRB will be a more flexible, nontaxable benefit for students assigned in TA, AI and GRA (depending on the grant) job codes.
GRAs may or may not receive this benefit. Check with your hiring department.
