The application process for the Qualified Tuition Reduction and Domestic Partner Tuition programs has moved online.

To apply, go to UAccess and log in to Employee/Manager Self Service. Select Main Menu, then Self Service, then Education Assistance Plan, then EAP Application Form. Applications for both programs, including those for the fall semester, are available now. Now that the application process has moved online, paper forms will no longer be accepted.

The Qualified Tuition Reduction program is for eligible active and officially retired employees, their spouses and qualified dependents and allows for those people to enroll in courses at any of Arizona's three state universities at a reduced cost.

Eligible employees or retirees, and their spouses, can register for up to nine credit hours in a semester and pay $25 in total tuition plus any laboratory or course fees. Eligible dependent children taking one or more credit hours pay 25 percent of resident tuition, plus any laboratory or course fees.

The deadline is July 10 to submit applications for the summer sessions and Sept. 30 for the fall semester.

The Domestic Partner Tuition Program gives reduced tuition to the domestic partners of  qualified University employees and the legal dependents of those domestic partners, as well as to domestic partners of retired employees.

Discounts and deadlines under this program are the same as with the Qualified Tuition Reduction program.

In order to participate, UA employees and their domestic partners must provide evidence of registration with an entity such as the City of Tucson Domestic Partnership Registry.

Visit Human Resources' educational benefits website for more information on the programs, including instructions for completing an online application and verifying an application status.
