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 Human Resources 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 LMU Financial Aid to ensure these resources are coordinated with other financial aid according to federal, state, and university policies.
Recipients of LMU tuition benefits or tuition exchange programs that meet 100% of LMU tuition costs are NOT eligible to receive the following forms of financial aid:
- LMU Grants, Need-Based Scholarships, LMU Donated or Endowed Awards
- LMU Institutional Scholarships
- LMU Yellow Ribbon Grant
- LMU Institutional Loans (California 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.
Tuition benefit recipients may be able to receive institutional awards that are designated for Room & Board expenses only.
Non-LMU Tuition Benefits or 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 LMU Financial Aid immediately.
If non-LMU tuition benefits meet or exceed LMU's tuition cost for a semester, any institutional (LMU-based) aid will be cancelled. If non-LMU tuition benefits does not meet full tuition, then applicable institutional aid will be coordinated to not exceed LMU tuition in accordance with university, federal and state requirements.
