The university offers two categories of education benefits:

  • Educational assistance offers eligible employees and retirees a 75 percent discount on the educational fees. 

    Seventy-five percent of the educational fee is waived for any eligible employee registering up to six credit hours of University of Missouri college level credit courses per semester (three credit hours in the summer session). 

    Activity fees, books and other expenses are the responsibility of the participating employee. If you are auditing a class (no credit received for the class) or are a retiree, then educational assistance pays 100% of the tuition and course fees. 

    Questions regarding Educational Assistance should be sent to umbenefitsedu@umsystem.eduMail To or call 573-882-2146.

  • Tuition reduction provides discounts for the spouse and dependents of employees once certain criteria are met. A fifty percent reduction of tuition will be available for an eligible spouse or an eligible dependent child of eligible employees for up to 140 hours of University of Missouri college credit courses per spouse or dependent child.

    For all courses (undergraduate, graduate or professional), the rate of such tuition reduction shall be based on the educational fee charged to a resident student for undergraduate courses. Under no circumstance will the reduction exceed fifty percent per student.
