Tuition Assistance

Princeton University, as a leader in higher education, is committed to being a community of learning. In this spirit, the University provides benefits for employees seeking educational advancement and for children of employees attending college. 

If you have one year of benefits-eligible service and take classes for credit at accredited institutions, you can obtain a reimbursement of 85 percent of your tuition and mandatory undergraduate and graduate educational fees under the University's Staff Educational Assistance Plan. The fiscal year maximum benefit is $5,250. 

After five years of benefits-eligible service, you may be eligible to receive a tuition grant under the University’s Children's Educational Assistance Plan for half of your children’s college tuition and mandatory fees up to $18,740 for the 2019-2020 academic year. The college must be accredited and your children must register for 12 credits or more.

You can count on support from knowledgeable and responsive HR staff when you have a benefits question or problem. Just call or e-mail us. We’re here to help! 

While the University intends to continue each of the benefit plans, the University reserves the right to terminate or amend any plan, at any time, and for any reason.
