LMU Employee Tuition Benefits

LMU Tuition Benefits

Full-time faculty and full-time, regular staff members are eligible to receive full tuition remission for undergraduate or graduate courses taken towards the completion of one undergraduate and/or one graduate degree, completion of a credential/certificate program offered by one of the six university schools/colleges, or taken under non-degree status.

In addition the spouses and dependent children of full time, regular faculty members are eligible for full time tuition remission provided certain requirements are met. The spouses and dependent children of part-time employees are not eligible for tuition remission. Please refer to the LMU Faculty Handbook, LMU Staff Policy Manual, or contact the Human Resources Office for further information regarding tuition remission.

LMU Tuition Benefits must be considered as a resource when determining eligibility for federal, state and other university funded sources of financial aid. If you are a participant in a tuition program that will cover part of your LMU tuition, you must notify the Financial Aid Office to ensure this resources in coordinated with other financial aid according to federal, state, and university policies.

  • LMU Institutional Loans (Perkins, California, Shandler, or Burns)

Recipients of the Cal Grant A or B (Tuition Award) who also receive LMU Tuition Benefits will have their LMU Tuition Benefits reduced by the amount of the Cal Grant tuition award.

Non-LMU Tuition Benefits/Reimbursement

Non-LMU tuition benefits must be considered as a resource when determining eligibility for federal, state and other university funded sources of financial aid. If your financial aid award does not include tuition benefits that you have been approved to receive, please notify the Financial Aid Office immediately.
