We are pleased to assist students in fully utilizing their employers' tuition reimbursement benefits in cooperation with the university's Business Office. The following guidelines have been created to facilitate a clear understanding among students regarding employer reimbursement.
If your employer provides you with a tuition reimbursement benefit, you probably fit into one of the following two categories:
Most employers who provide tuition reimbursement reimburse their employees after they have completed their courses and received their grades for a given semester. As a service to our employer-reimbursed students, Regent University allows such students to defer payment for a given semester until the fourth Friday of the following semester.
Students choosing to defer any part of their tuition payment under this plan are required to submit the online employer reimbursement deferment form (see below) to the Business Office prior to the start of each semester and will be charged a $45.00 fee to set up their deferment.
Students can pay with a check, cash, money order or credit card as long as the payment is received by the Business Office by the fourth Friday of the following term in which the employer reimbursement deferment plan option was utilized. The Business Office accepts Mastercard, Discover or Amex credit cards.Students who use a credit card are responsible to charge their own credit card by the payment deadline. The payment deadline date is designed to give students ample time to receive their grades from the Registrar's Office and to process their reimbursement with their employer.
IMPORTANT: Regent University maintains the right to revoke a student's tuition deferment privileges if their payment is not made by the payment deadline. Students will be immediately dropped from their classes for non-payment at this time and will be charged a $100.00 late payment fee.
Students whose companies reimburse less than 100 percent of tuition can only defer payment on that portion of their tuition that will be covered by their company. The student is responsible to set up other satisfactory payment arrangements for the remainder of the tuition balance by the payment deadline (e.g., full payment, TIP, loans). Please note if you withdraw from classes after the 100 percent or 50 percent refund periods in a given semester, you are still obligated to make payment of your entire balance by the payment deadline regardless of forfeiting tuition reimbursement from your employer.
Please note: Failure to set up the employer reimbursement deferment plan by the payment deadline each semester will subject you to a $100.00 late payment fee. We hope these guidelines clarify the expectations of the university regarding employer reimbursement.
