Who’s Eligible

Tuition remission is one of the benefits that comes with being an employee at New York University. You’re eligible if you’re a:

  • Full-time employee, their spouse/domestic partner, a dependent
  • Retiree with access to NYUHome

Prior to applying for tuition remission, you should reference New York University’s Human Resources website to learn about eligibility requirements.

How to Apply

Employees and retirees with an active NYU ID can access the online tuition remission system to begin the process.

Employees will have to provide proof of their relationship to spouses/partners and dependents before applying.

Please note School of Professional Studies (SPS) non-credit courses are not available via the automated tuition remission process and require a paper tuition remission form.

Job Relatedness and Taxes

Tuition remission is taxable at the gift tax rate for NYU employees enrolled in graduate programs.

Be sure to turn in your Statement of Job Relatedness form no later than two weeks before the end of your pay period to avoid being taxed, though we recommend you submit the form when you apply for tuition remission.

Payroll cannot guarantee tax reimbursements if the form is submitted after taxation for that term has started.

The 2019 Taxable Tuition Remission Schedule is available from NYU Payroll.

You must also fill out the Job Relatedness for Employee Graduate Tuition Remission Tax Form.

Both forms are both available through the Tuition Remission system on NYUHome.

Other Important Forms and Documents

Make sure you have the right documents as you go through the process of tuition remission.

You can find the necessary forms from HR for:

  • Application for SPS Non-Credit Courses
  • Application for retirees without an active NYU Net ID
