Tuition Benefits

Regents Scholarship Program for Employees

The Regents Scholarship Program provides employees with free or reduced tuition when they take classes at the University of Minnesota. Many use this benefit for professional development or to continue their education.

The Regents Scholarship can be used for undergraduate and graduate classes taken for credit by benefits-eligible faculty, P&A staff, Civil Service, and Labor Represented employee groups.

The portion of tuition covered by the scholarship depends on your current education level:

  • I00% of tuition cost is covered if pursuing your first undergraduate degree
  • 75% of tuition cost is covered for all other eligible classes

The Regents Scholarship Program policy page has information on eligibility, covered costs, and how to apply. You must complete the Request for Regents Scholarship form each term.

Resident Tuition

If you and your family members are not current residents of Minnesota, you may qualify for resident tuition rates at the University of Minnesota.

Check your appointment percentage and employee job classification on the Verification of Appointment for Resident Tuition form to see if you qualify. Eligible family members include your legal spouse, dependent children, or a legal ward living in the household.
