Yes. The benefit applies only to enrollment at the University of South Alabama. Employees and eligible dependents adhere to the same admissions related requirements and procedures as all students enrolled in classes at the University.
Exceptions - the Mitchell College of Business Doctoral Program is excluded from the Employee Educational Benefit. Tuition and fee charges paid by a Graduate Assistantship will not be eligible for the Employee Educational Benefit.
The tuition rate is based on the employee’s date of employment and the degree program.
Tuition and Fees paid as a component of Graduate Assistantships, stipends, or fellowships will not be eligible for EEB. Should any course not qualify as an authorized tuition expense through the Graduate School, or the registered credit hours exceed the maximum covered under the student's assistantship, EEB may be applied to the additional tuition cost (following EEB eligibility criteria).
EEB credit will be assessed only on those registered hours not already covered by the existing tuition credit.
