Employer Deferment Program
The Employer Deferment Program allows students to enroll in classes at USI without having to pay for the classes prior to the start of a term if they can verify that tuition and/or fee charges will be reimbursed by their employers, through the submission of the Employer Deferment Form. Specialized programs, such as Online MBA and Online RN to BSN, have a specific form since the program courses are eight weeks. Payment may be deferred for tuition and registration fee charges only. Students may not defer payment for the application fee or for the purchase of books.
How the program works:
The Employer Deferment Program allows students who have tuition reimbursement from their employers to defer their tuition bill until 30 days after grades are posted each semester. A separate form must be completed to its entirety each semester the student has the benefit. Forms are available each semester at the time tuition is assessed and are located on the Forms page.
By completing this form, it does not release the student from the obligation of paying by the established due date given on the form each semester. Furthermore, employers are not obligated to pay us directly. This form simply verifies that the student is participating in and is eligible for their employer's tuition reimbursement program at the time.
Completing the form:
Each semester or online session, the student should complete the Employer Tuition Deferment form and provide the form to the representative within their company for verification of eligibility. An authorized representative must sign the form before our office will accept it. If your employer will not sign the form, your tuition and fees will not be eligible for the Employer Deferment Program.
Please note the Bursar's Office will not process any Employer Deferment forms if the employer deferral amount, employer signature, or student signature is missing. Please be sure to review your form and all questions before submitting.
Spring 2021 Employer Deferment forms will be available on the Forms page in the second week of January.
Tuition Reimbursement Letter
Students needing a letter itemizing their tuition for reimbursement from their employer may request a letter by completing the request form. Please note, processing time may be between five and seven business days. Letters will only be sent to the student's USI email address.
