Tuition Waiver Tax Exemption Steps

This is for FT Employees who are taking Graduate Courses. This is to waive the taxes on those classes. Below are the steps eligible employees should consider before submitting the Affidavit of Qualification for Tax Exemption Form:

  1. You must be a FT Staff or FT Faculty Member.
  2. You must be taking a graduate level course that directly relates to your job and enrolled in classes. 
  3. Fill out the Affidavit of Qualification for Tax Exemption Form.
  4. Send the Affidavit Form along with a signed copy of your job description to TUBenefits@tulane.edu; both the signature of the employee AND the supervisor must be on the copy of the job description. 
  5. Once your Form is approved you will receive a confirmation from HR.

The deadline for submitting the Affidavit of Qualification for Tax Exemption Form is the same as that of the Tuition Waiver Form for each semester. Please return the Affidavit form to TU Benefits in Human Resources.
