All regular full-time faculty and staff applying for the benefit of tuition remission for eligible dependent children are required to provide, on an annual basis, legal documentation confirming dependent status.
This documentation may include, but is not limited to, a photocopy of the employee’s 1040 tax form filed with the IRS from the prior calendar year. The portion of the 1040 form stating the name of the dependent, his/her Social Security number, and date of birth is required. All financial information should be omitted.
In addition, HRD will also verify spouse or same-sex partner status in cases where HRD does not have this information currently on file. This documentation could include a copy of a marriage certificate, civil union certificate, or same-sex partner affidavit.
All tuition remission forms for classes beginning in the Fall 2014 semester must have updated documentation attached when forwarded to HRD for processing.
