Fairfield University encourages continued learning and reflection among our employees. Taking advantage of classes offered here on our campus is a great way to do so. To assist, the University offers a tuition benefit to full-time employees, their spouses and children. Regular part-time employees who work a minimum of 1,000 hours per year, are eligible at a prorated rate.
Tuition benefit for employees & their spouses.
Full-time employees receive a maximum of 18 academic credits annually with a maximum of 6 credits per semester in the undergraduate, graduate, and certain doctorate programs upon start of employment. More information pertaining to covered programs can be obtained in Human Resources.
Tuition benefit for dependents of employees.
Full-time faculty are eligible for 100% grant-in-aid for Fairfield undergraduate schools during the fall, spring, and summer semesters, as well as the January intersession. They are also entitled to one-half or 50% tuition grant-in-aid for the Prep School. Nieces and nephews of University Jesuits are eligible under this section.
Full-time exempt and non-exempt personnel are eligible for grant-in-aid during the fall, spring, and summer semesters, as well as the January intersession on a tiered rate based on years of completed service to the University. After four (4) completed years of continuous full-time service at the University, 100% of tuition is covered.
Full-time administrators and staff follow a similar tiered schedule for Prep School grant-in-aid. After four (4) completed years of continuous full-time service, 50% of tuition is covered.
All requests for tuition benefits must be requested through Human Resources prior to the start of each semester.
Note: All persons receiving tuition benefits must meet the normal admission and academic requirements.
