Luther College is pleased to be able to offer its faculty and staff a benefit that is highly unique in today’s workplace: higher education for one’s dependents. It is a privilege to be engaged in the mission of higher education, and to be able to offer that experience to family members of Luther employees is worthy of institutional support.
To monitor and manage the cost of the Tuition Benefit Program and to ensure all employees have equal access to the process, the following guidelines have been established.
There is a three-step application process for the Tuition Benefit Program.
Step 1: The application form, due November 1, notifies Luther College that you have a dependent who will be applying or re-applying for the tuition benefit. This is a preliminary list of colleges your child is interested in applying to.
Step 2: A finalized list of colleges that your child will be applying to is due December 1. Please email your list to Scot Schaeffer.
Step 3: The confirmation form, due May 15 of the following year, confirms the specific benefit program your dependent will be utilizing and the college or university your dependent will be attending.
Both forms are available on the Human Resources web site. It is the employee’s responsibility to meet the November 1, December 1 and May 15 deadlines. Failure to do so can result in your dependent not receiving this benefit.
Faculty grandfathered into the Cash Benefit program must submit their bill from the institution their dependent is attending within 30 days of the receipt of the bill to the Director of Financial Aid. Failure to meet this deadline will result in forfeiture of the cash benefit for that year. This benefit is being phased out.
