Tuition Support

Tuition Support

The LSA Tuition Support Program pays a generous portion of in-state tuition and registration fees for classes that regular staff take, for credit, from accredited institutions. Tuition support under this policy may be paid as either a reimbursement or an advance, at the option of the staff member.  Tuition support in LSA will be made available while a staff member is on a seasonal leave.

For details on eligibility and qualifying courses, please refer to the University of Michigan Tuition Support Program described in the online Standard Practice Guide 201.69.
