Employee Tuition Benefit (ETB)

Regis University provides a tuition benefit program for employees, their spouses and their children (biological, stepchildren or legally adopted) enrolled in select Regis University undergraduate programs, and for employees attending select Regis graduate programs. All general applicable admissions, academic progress and registration requirements must be met.


  • After six months of employment for undergraduate courses
  • After one year of employment for graduate and certificate courses
  • Dependent children and spouses are eligible to receive ETB following two years of Regis employment. ETB dependent child eligibility lasts for seven years following high school graduation.

A temporary employee working full-time who subsequently moves into a regular, approved and budgeted position may count the time spent in the temporary position for ETB eligibility.

Benefit Limitations and Fees:

Employees may register for a maximum of 9 credit hours of undergraduate courses or 6 credit hours of graduate courses per semester. Dependent children and spouses may each register for a maximum of 18 credit hours per semester.

Employee registration is limited to 2 weeks prior to course start to allow priority registration for non-employee students. 

Employees who voluntarily separate from Regis University within one year of degree completion will be responsible for reimbursing the University for a percentage of the tuition costs of the most recent term. When possible, this amount will be deducted from the employee's final paycheck.

ETB administration fees are assessed on a tiered basis based on employee salary. Unpaid fees still due at the end of the term will be deducted from the employee's next paycheck.

  • Up to $50,000: $25 fee per credit
  • $50,001-$75,000: $50 fee per credit
  • Over $75,001: $75 fee per credit


ETB benefits and tax-exemption requests must be submitted for each course in which a student is enrolled.

Employees participating in ETB can receive up to $5,250 in tuition benefit per year without tax consequence. Benefits received beyond the $5,250/year limit become taxable as ordinary income. Exemptions are granted on the basis of job relatedness as approved by HR. Click the link above for more information and to apply for tax exemption.
