Tuition Benefits

Indiana University’s Tuition Benefit supports the educational mission of IU and reduces the cost of IU courses for its employees and their dependents. Eligible individuals are provided a subsidy toward the tuition costs associated with attending Indiana University classes or a tuition waiver in the case of Indiana University High School (IUHS) courses. The plan is available to eligible employees, former employees with IU Retiree Status, and former employees receiving long-term disability benefits.


The FMLA is a federal law which entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.

The resources below provide comprehensive information for Indiana University managers, supervisors, and employees.

Family Status Change

Benefit plans can be affected by family status changes, some of which qualify as an official change in status by the IRS (e.g., marriage or birth of a child). Plans not affected by this change are listed behind the tab to the left, "Enroll in a Plan or Make Plan Changes."

Generally, when you enroll in benefits as a new employee, enrollment begins on the date of hire, and you cannot make any changes until the next Open Enrollment period. However, if you experience a qualified change in status, you can make mid-year changes under the law.
